“Best burger in town!”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

It's a cozy place, great food and amazing desserts. If you want to have lunch there, go early or make a reservation. Some people prefer the pulled pork sandwich, but I always go with the burger.

“Best burgers ever!!”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

The burgers are amazing! Really, you won't find better ones in all San Salvador!! The place still has that "homemade" feel. It's very low key. You can drive by and almost miss it. But the food is amazing! The desserts are yummy too! Really worth a visit.
If it's your first visit I recommend you order a Rustico Burger, you can't possibly go wrong! Buen Provecho! :)

“Good sandwiches, chill place”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Located just on a side street, this place serves some of the best sandwiches this side of San Salvador. Their fusion of Latin American and American (try the pulled pork or their burgers with pineapple) blends really well. The ambiance is also a plus as you may sit in a quiet garden or a relatively calm porch. The only downside is parking as it has no lot of its own, though normally you'll have no trouble finding a spot nearby.

“Foodies, prepare to drool!”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

Rustico is not your typical franchise bistro, it's one of the most unique places in San Salvador to enjoy an awesome meal in a laid back, rustic, environment. Alvaro, the chef and owner, creates dishes that will wake up your taste buds, mixing flavors and spices from chipotle to zatar. The burgers and paninis are a staple, and have had a loyal following since the place opened. Another highly recommended dish is the ceviche, which is usually made fresh on Saturdays. Rustico is a place for foodies to kick back in a casual and friendly environment; No BS, just great food inspired and prepared by Alvaro.
