Rutabegorz has been a favorite for those of us in the Fullerton area for years. Their interesting and unusual menu selections offer something for everyone - especially vegetarians and vegans - portions are generous so sharing is always a good idea. Great atmosphere, but can be noisy if it's crowded. Try their great salads, cocky leeky soup and coffee drinks.

I preface this by saying I'm somewhat tainted by having gone here since I was in college in the late seventies, when it was more of a coffee house. It's changed quite a bit over the years. There's more on the menu from which to choose but not sure it makes it any better. My table was split on last... More

Food at Ruta's is excellent--really nice mixture of eclectic choices. Service is very friendly. Had a really nice turkey salad with turkey bacon and hard boiled egg--very tasty.

I recently returned to this restaurant with a group of 12 people. They gave us our own room in the back. Our server was excellent and friendly. We all had different things and all loved what we had. I have never had a bad does in this restaurant. The portions are very generous.

Great place. Great neighborhood restaurant. It has a big menu with many choices. Sandwiches, wraps, pasta , and salads. The full size salads are huge and easily shareable. Most selections are healthy but if you aren't watching your weight try the desserts! Great brownies and other items. I had the big Cobb Salad. Really good and I shared it but... More

My first date with my husband was at this restaurant (in the 80's) and we've been coming for decades. Food is terrific, vibe is fun and retro. Lots of organic and vegetarian choices. Our kids are grown now and they love it too. Enthusiastically recommend!

Ordered a salad for takeout - it was delicious, fresh, and reasonably priced. I would certainly go here again if I find myself in Fullerton in the future!

We love this place! All three locations are excellent but, we usually go to the Fullerton location. Vegan, vegetarian and kid friendly. They have a wide variety of food choices and the feel is northern California, laid back and health oriented. Fabulous salads.

Ruta's has been around for decades and it retains the best of the hippie vibe. Good food, lots of it vegetarian or organic, and a friendly staff. Salads are huge and the falafel is excellent. The menu is extensive. The Fullerton location, where I usually go, has several rooms, one sort of ambling on from the next so although it... More

This was the first Rutabegorz and I don't think it's changed much. It's small and I wouldn't recommend it for large groups. But for one or two people it's very quaint.
