About Us

What we're all about....




Rusty’s Pizza strives to be the BEST pizza with the BEST service!

In 1969 Rusty’s began in the community of Isla Vista. Within three years the locations of Milpas and State Street were added, followed soon by Carrillo, Fairview and Carpinteria.

The 90's was a busy decade for Rusty's. We opened Storke Road in Goleta and Rusty's on Turnpike Road in 1994. 2002 marked the opening of Rusty's location on the waterfront across from Stearns Wharf. All Rusty's restaurants are locally owned and operated. Rusty's is one call, one phone number away with our One Number-Order System. Dial 564-1111 and let us WOW! you with our great pizza, great people and great service.

A Sense of Community... Since its beginning, Rusty's has been involved in the community with a strong emphasis on children through school programs and youth organizations. Rusty's also provides jobs for well over three hundred employees, ranging from part-time first jobs for students, to jobs with skills in management and supervision. We provide ongoing training at all levels and company-wide training for every position.

Come On In... Rusty's offers rooms for business meetings, gatherings, birthdays and casual get-togethers. Just call in advance and we will reserve an area for you at no charge. We are then able to provide you with personalized service and great food! The Webb Room at State St. and our two upstairs rooms at Rusty's Carrillo have been favorite meeting places for many Santa Barbara groups over the years. Enjoy the beautiful banking decor at Storke Rd. and have lunch in the bank vault or have your next meeting in our large private room. Our newest location at the Lighthouse across from Stearns Wharf, provides a private fireplace room perfect for your next event by the beach. Most stores have large screen TV's and Video Games. Our managers will be happy to arrange a tour for your group. Come see the pizza-making process and make your own (individual) pizza to enjoy after the tour!
