They offer great food with one of the best craft beer selections you'll find in El Salvador! Including great beers from Paulaner, Brooklyn Brewery & Rogue Ales.

“Amazing burger, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

As tourists visiting for just a few days, Rustico was recommended by a friend who lives in San Salvador and has set the bar high for our experience of dining in the capital.

The burger was amazing and the staff are great. Highly recommended.

“Best Hamburger in El Salvador!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

We have eaten here twice! The first time we ordered each one hamburger. They are huge! The flavor is wonderful, the french fries are fabulous! On our second visit we ordered a salad and it was very fresh and tasty! We shared the California Burger and fries on the second visit and it was a perfect meal! Highly recommend!
