Sunday night, 8 families sitting, two couples at the counter seated, no one ahead of us in line. No ice available for over 20 minutes for beverages. Ice tea container empty and they had no desire to refill it. Since I don't drink soda, my money was spent on tap water. Nine tacos took over 30 minutes to receive. Fully... More

Love the fish taco filling here, but they miss the mark by having cold tortillas! Real tacos have to have two piping hot (too hot to touch) tortillas around any filling. Please fix this, and we will return!

We had a short amount of time for lunch today. We had very friendly service, good quality food and received our lunch very quickly. We chose different types of tacos, all very good, and their dessert 'tacos' were great!

Food truck was supposed to be at a brewery. Was 30 minutes late showing up and took another 45 to actually open. Very frustrating. As we tabbed out at the bar, they finally opened. Taco Bell it is!

After getting some things at Trader Joe's next door, I needed a quick, small lunch. Rather than a fast food drive-thru, I popped into Rusty Taco. I asked for help and the cashier said it's all good but her favorite is #3, steak fajita taco. I sat at a table while they cooked it fresh in front of me. Yum!... More

We hadn't been here in a long time, the idea popped in our head, and off we went to Rusty Taco....! 2 people in front of us to order, no big deal we think. 15 minutes later we finally get to order our food (4 tacos). Instead of fairly quick and convenient, we received very slow and had to listen... More

The little taceria, taco cafe, is popular spot for anyone in the neighborhood You can walk there ,or drive, ride a bike, There is a table outside available when it's nice out. The food is delicious, fresh ingredients, cooked to order. Self serve and lots of tables.

Love this place! The tacos are unbelievably fantastic--great variety and mostly gluten free. This is my new favorite place for tacos. Really nice atmosphere-simple but good. Wonderful and friendly service. Can't say enough about it. I'd recommend the fish tacos and guacamole. Salsa and chips are the best too!

My husband asked if Rusty Taco is better than Nacho Libre in San Diego, I felt bad, but it is. Sorry honey. I had the fried chicken taco and shrimp taco, both were recommended by the cashier. They were so tasty! They each had their own delicious sauces, slaw and cilantro, combined into such a fresh taste.
