It's a simple restaurant with a very friendly staff. It is definitely a local hangout. The best part of eating there is the food. Absolutely delicious and authentic. When I come to visit friends here, I always make them take me here. The prices are very reasonable. Four people $60. I would highly recommend it.

Rusten House serves great food in house. But, if you order take out you really get jipped. I ordered soup and salad combo, with the intent of saving the salad for a latter meal. When I got home I found lettuce with just a drizzle of dressing stuffed into a small Chinese food box. Thus, compelling me to eat the... More

I just love there taco's made with ground beef, and loaded with anything you want! Comes to your table on a hot plate, drinks are served immediately, the staff is awesome and very accommodating . Ed and Lori are fantastic!

A nice place to enjoy authentic Mexican food. Family owned and operated. Doesn't have the atmosphere of other chain places but the food is superior. I would choose the Rusten House over all of the competition!

My whole family loves the Rusten House so much! The food is amazing! The service is outstanding! There is no better place in the AV for such good Mexican Food and tremendous service, which you don't really get that often anymore. If you go you have to try the tortilla soup. The hospitality is so wonderful and I definitely recommend... More

I've been coming here for 38 years and the food is by far the best and very authentic. It's a family business that is now run by the adult children. You won't be disappointed and the service and staff are great.

Rusten House has been around many years although the "new" location in a near-abandoned strip mall is not as funky and charming as the old setting. That said, this is standard American- Mexican food. Good portions, fine service, full bar. Nothing fancy, no surprises, satisfying.

I do not like the location. It feels like I'm on a store window. BUT the food is good and the servers are friendly and helpful.
