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

This is my second time to Rusty's, and I've yet to have a bad experience! We stopped in for shakes while passing through Cashmere on a hot evening. Their cherry shakes are delicious-- with real cherry (not Maraschino) pieces in them. The service is always efficient and friendly, and they have a nice outdoor eating area. If you're in Cashmere...

Fresh fruit in your shake, burgers,chicken and fries made to order... So you have to wait?! Local folks aren't in as big of hurry as some of our tourists seem to be!! It's worth the wait, but if you don't have the time- try a FAST FOOD joint. In the mean time, us locals will take your place in line!!

Unless you've lived in or driven through Cashmere you've undoubtedly missed this little gem. Comparable to Dusty's and the little burger shack on the lake in Chelan, this one's right up there. Always used to stop on the way to or from sports games we were either playing in or watching back in high school. Really the only quick place... More

We love stopping by here in the summers when we are floating the river or gold panning. Quick, good, and affordable food. Also great shakes! Perfect grab on a summer day.
