 Friends,

It's hard to believe that we have come this far. We have put so much thought, time, and effort in to Rusty's Southern since we began work in August of last year. The good news is that we are in the final stages. Our renovation is almost complete, a bevy of new kitchen and bar appliances are showing up soon, we are hiring and training, and we are confident that we will meet our goal of opening in late March.

Francis and Rusty

We look forward to welcoming you all into our little corner of the Tenderloin. We have found it to be a sunny welcoming neighborhood and we are fortunate enough to be on a block with not one but three auto repair shops and a motorcycle shop. We have enjoyed getting to know this part of town and can't wait to share it with you.

Shrimp and Okra, you are gonna love the remoulade!

Some of our final projects that will be funded with your help include plumbing, refrigeration (mmm beer), and our audio system. Your help at this stage will allow us to deliver Rusty's Southern to you in the best way possible (and on time!!!).

Risks and challenges

We are so close to opening our doors for ya'll to come enjoy some incredible food and beer. Our biggest hurdle may be a short delay due to fire and health department inspections.
