Nice spot for a group to meet

Rusty's Pizza Parlor was chosen by our group for an after adventure meet and greet. They gave us a large upstairs room that was perfect for our group. The pizza was good. They offer crisp and regular crust and all the usual toppings. The salads were fresh and the lettuce crisp. The price was... read more

One of the few pizza delivery places in SB. However, the pizza is not very good. I'd have to be desperate or drunk to order from there. Grab an Uber and to to VIa Vai, Olio Pizzeria or Trattoria Mollie if you want good pizza.

Santa Barbara does not have a lot of great pizza options, but this is clearly the best of the bunch. Small, local chain with excellent quality & pricing.

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 touced sausage, ham etc.... 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

Rusty's has many locations in Santa Barbara and Goleta. Good pizza, salads, etc. The locations we have visited were all nice and comfortable.

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
