Best Pizza but Needs Attention To Hygine

Ok. I am a Santa Barbara/Goleta local and have been eating Rusty's Pizzas for last 30 years. Undoubtedly this is one of the best pizzas in town. I never paid attention to how their pizza is made until now. So, if you order all veggie pizza, the preparer makes pizza with the same hands which have... read more

I liked that the pizza was made with fresh ingredients and was ready in a timely fashion. Very reasonable for the amount of food and quality.

There was nothing particulary eye-catching about the interior, but the arcade cabinets can keep the kids occupied. Not that long of a wait and the pizza was incredible (the salads are also note-worthy). There was also not a prominent difference between thin and thick crusted pizzas which was for some reason a lot more noticable than it should have been.... More

We were FAMISHED after a day of shopping and sight-seeing, when we saw the restaurant from the outside, we thought it was an ala carte restaurant, imagine our surprise to walk in and find a casual takeaway pizza joint, as in, you can come in covered in sand and still feel right at home. But we didn't mind it one... More

I love their Pan Pizza there. We usually ask for light sauce and 2 toppings (pep & can bacon). Great service and got our pizza fast along with hot wings. Spent about $31 for 3 drinks, 10 pc wings & lrg pizza.
