A kitschy nautical theme and devastating drinks make up the DNA of this place, and it just so happens that they serve amazing bar food that will save your life at 1:00am. Our visits to the Rusty Knot usually follow the same pattern: night out at restaurant turns into extra drinks, extra drinks happen at another bar..and then we’re sitting on the floor at Rusty Knot eating pretzel dogs and tacos. God bless this city.

Not so much a pretzel as it is a flaky croissant thing wrapped around a hot dog, but who cares. It’s awesome. This is one of the better hot dogs you will find in town, and with a can of Tecate that’s been salted and limed? Life doesn’t get much better.
Guacamole & Chips
Tortilla chips are fresh made daily and the guac comes served in the avocado shell. Both are delivered to you in a basket, and you will get guacamole on your knuckles scraping for every bit.
Tacos Al Pastor
Spicy pork tacos served with a delicious pineapple salsa.
Fish Po Boy
Fried fish, lettuce, tomato, and aioli in some soft buns.
