want a big, juicy burger packed with flavor? Go here! The burgers are so big, you can share one. The french fries have a great seasoning that make you eat more than you need too. Plus, super affordable. Come early...tables fill up fast and it is a small establishment.

I love burgers. It's often hard to get a really excellent burger in San Salvador, but that is not the case at Rustico, my slice of burger heaven in the city. First, the place is charming--a few outdoor tables fashioned out of wooden spindles. Your beverages are served in ice cold mason jars that were in the freezer. The foliage around the patio provides some nice atmosphere. But none of that matters in the long run--it's about the burgers. Glorious, 1/2 lb, juicy bits of ground beef seasoned with some bit of magic that makes me not even want to use catsup, grilled to perfection (one of the only places that can really do medium rare or rare!), served on a fresh baked bun lightly toasted. And of course served with amazing, hand cut french fries. Mmmmmm....you will not be disappointed.

Tip: It's only open for lunch M - S.

The best hamburgers in San Salvador! Get there early and sit outside it's a small place. I ordered the three cheese burger and I could only eat half so they would be great for sharing. A friend had the pulled pork sandwhich was was also great.
