First of all I wrote a review about Rusty's when I first moved to the area, that it was good, but it wasn't exactly glowing. I've come to right the ship. It's all about knowing what to order. Since I moved in down the street, this place has become a staple. They literally have the best french dip that's ever... More

Having worked in Philadelphia early in my career and with a family member now living in Philly while attending university, having access to a good quality cheesesteak is a necessity in life. Look no further than Rusty's Deli, the South Charlotte Philly (steak or chicken) is an awesome local option. Order with the mushrooms if you like the full experience.... More

I went here with a friend today. We did take out but there are plenty of seats to eat in, in this spacious restaurant. This deli and grill is popular at lunch time. I had the black bean burger and fries. The black bean burger is huge, with shredded lettuce and mayo. It had a great black bean taste, well... More

We order from Rusty's Deli about once a month for lunch for the office. Hands down the best Cheesesteak and fries you will find in Charlotte. The owners are awesome and very accommodating. Between their burgers and cheesesteaks, you cannot go wrong. I love this deli and the food is always fresh, hot and so tasty. Thank you Rusty's for... More

Rusty's Deli is the best neighborhood deli/grille. My favorite is the Turkey Rueben. Everything is good. I just wish it was bigger since everyone likes to go there! Yum!

This place has been a staple at the Quail Corners Shopping Center for over 30 years and they are as popular as ever. Loved it when I lived in Charlotte and try to get by whenever I'm visiting Charlotte now. Never had a bad meal at Rusty's. My "go to" sandwich is the Chicken Philly. The cheese-steaks and burger are... More

Rusty's offers a hometown, local atmosphere. Good food, good layout, service is fast and friendly. This is not a gourmet restaurant. This is quality, fun, fast food, but sooooo much better than any of the chains.

I got the French dip which came with a bland au jus. The beef was not seasoned either. One slice of cheese was melted the other slice not. The fries were just fries, needed salt. My friend enjoyed the cheese steak. Employees polite. Not worth going back.

Picture a railroad car-shaped restaurant. On the right, front to back, is the order taker, the food assembly area, the sandwich prep area, and then the grill. On the left are the tables. (There's also an outside patio.) If you don't get there until after 11:30, it's a dead giveaway you're not a local and you should plan on standing... More

I have been eating here a lot lately as it is very convenient these days. Food is tasty, quick and the service is friendly and helpful. I love the twice baked potatoes and the hamburgers are good too. My spouse is gluten free and while they do not offer gf bread, they do offer burgers on lettuce wraps. That is... More
