Rusty’s Pizza on Turnpike has a new name: “Rusty’s Pizza on Hollister.” For about two years Rusty’s Pizza at 149 South Turnpike Road in Goleta had been planning to move from their hole-in-the-wall take-out space to a full-sized restaurant across the parking lot. They finally got a permit, completed construction and have opened for business at 4880 Hollister Avenue. “The store features party / meeting rooms, our ever-popular expanded salad bar, TVs and video games,” says owner Tyler Duncan. “We’re excited to expand from our current offering and move into this great new space.”
I stopped by the new restaurant and spoke with Tony Aleman, District Manager of Rusty’s Pizza, who tells me that the new eatery on Hollister offers beer and wine, something that their now-closed neighboring location never had on the menu. Restaurant and delivery hours are 11 a.m.-midnight daily except for Friday and Saturday when delivery ends at 1 a.m. Call 564-1111 or visit rustyspizza.com.
