Average, very slow service

Food was average for a local burger place. Despite several choices and local favorites, I found it to be very slow service although I was the only one there and four employees were inside. It took at least 15 minutes to get our 2 burgers, fries and a milkshake. EZ's in Wenatchee has better food... read more

I always stop at Rusty's...It has been the highlight of my trip over to the East Side for years. Today I went with a friend that does not usually stop here. Sorry I talked her into it. We both Ordered Jr Rusty Burgers. They were cold! The meat is so thin now it cannot be tasted! Rusty's was definitely a... More

I can never pass up a good drive in and I had a great burger here. The double Rusty with everything on it! I had the "O"rings as they call em. They were good but not the best. Just a note, the Small order of rings is definitely very small. Maybe the large order is very Large?? Just about $3... More

On a quest to find some of the best local indepedant burger places.... Rustys delivered. Much better than any chain burger, nice juicy and well cooked. Yeah you may have to wait a few, but isnt it worth it when they dont cook it until you place your order? Check it on the way to/from Wenatchee.

Rusty's is a classic old school burger joint. It is conveniently located right off the highway in Cashmere. They take both walk up and drive through orders. Every item is cooked to order, so don't expect super fast food. The wait is well worth it as the burgers taste great and all ingredients are very fresh. The provide tables in... More

This place has character and has been around for a long time. It's a fun place for a family to stop for a reasonable priced, old school, diner type meal. You can't go wrong with the double cheeseburger! I don't know if I'd go back with Leavenworth right down the road, but still a good experience.

This is the real deal, not a new chain trying to be retro. Got the deluxe burger and large shake and it was HUGE. The hand make everything as you order so you can wait a bit. Nice little area out back to sit and eat. From the looks of it all the locals go there. Plus I'll bet it... More

The first time I go to an iconic drive-in (which Rusty's is), I like to try a pretty basic burger so that I get an idea of the real taste of the burger and sauce without a lot of competing flavors from cheese, bacon, etc. Rusty's deluxe burger is very good with a sauce I really liked. I wasn't very... More

upon first look it might not look like much but if you pass it by you are missing out on one of the best places in Washington to get a real burger, french fries and shakes! Don't be scared off by the wait either....IT IS WELL WORTH THE WAIT! order your food, relax, and prepare yourself and your stomach for... More

My family routinely visits Rusty's anytime we are traveling through the area. They truly have awesome burgers! The only downside is there is a long wait. We have waited 1/2 hour before for our order. CALL AHEAD if you can. They answer the phone about 1/2 of the time and quote 20 minutes. It's never been ready when I have... More
