“I had Oxtail with rice while my Colleague had sticky BBQ wings. My oxtail was well cooked and served with rice and vegetables.

I have had lots of different recipes when it comes to oxtail, but The Rusty Lady’s recipe blew my taste buds. My Colleague’s choice of sticky wings made me jealous when he allowed me to taste them.

Both dishes were exquisite in their own right.”


Carlin, the Owner of The Rusty Lady, endeavours to serve a menu that is homely but still exciting.  Their signature pizzas are definitely something worth paying a visit for. 

The Rusty Lady’s food portions will not leave you feeling short-changed, not only in value, but in taste and quality too.

The Rusty Lady’s Sunday Lunch will not only remind you of your Mother’s cooking, but will make you miss you Grand-mother too.  When will you be popping in to try the leg of lamb, chicken or gammon, roast potatoes, chunky veg, rice & gravy – with a dollop of ice-cream, chocolate sauce and sprinkles of flake for dessert?

The Rusty Lady also has an impressive bar and drinks menu, and they offer some of the best wines in Johannesburg.

Prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic, The Rusty Lady was the best place to go for Live Entertainment on a Friday.  The Owner is passionate about supporting Local Artists and we cannot wait for our Signature Fridays to return.  Despite live performances being on hold, the music played still provides an ambiance of good vibes every-time you walk in.

So the next time you think of great food, efficient bar, homely vibes, good music and sport, The Rusty Lady is the only place to head towards.
