Our Pick of the Week

We can never get enough of Rusty Taco. They have super delicious freshly made tacos, ice-cold margaritas, and we love their queso. If you’re a breakfast taco lover, you want to check them out because they offer breakfast tacos all day long. They also serve nachos, taco bowls, churros, sopapillas. Some of our favorites are the Fried Chicken Taco, the Grilled Fish Taco, or their bacon and and cheese taco topped with their house-made sauces.
