I began eating at Rutabegorz in the 70's when I was in college. And I return every time I visit Fullerton. The menu is so extensive, everyone can find something to eat. I love the enormous salad bowls. But their sandwiches and other entrees are always good, too. The prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is casual, and if you have... More

I love this place. While the service may be slow the food is great. My friend and I shared two dishes and mentioned it to the waitress. So she split the plates w/ an extra charge. Got the Chicken Salad kissed by walnut. It came w/ a small pasta salad. That would be have been a great for the two... More

The food here is a variety of vegetarian and light meat eater entrees. No steak or lobster here, but the meat entrees are good enough to satisfy most non aggressive carnivores '~'

We have been coming here for years and is a great local place! There are lots of choices on the menu -- something for everyone. My favorite is the Chicken Enchilada Verde (note: probably not very authentic Mexican if you know what I mean). Tuna Bagel good. Garlic Chicken Pasta good.

Food is good and somewhat healthy. Mostly eat here for lunch so sandwich fav's are chicken walnut, turkey cranberry and the tuna. My all time favorite soup is the Cocky Leeky - great flavor, creamy, and always served piping hot - as soup should be. Friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. Give it a try!

Favorite spot for all the family! Very Healthy choices. Taste very good. Service a little slow but friendly. Sometimes crowded and almost not enough room if you want to have a 'quiet' meal. A great amount of food to choose from. Fun to go and pick something different every time and be healthy about it!!

Not super great food here but really good, if you know what I mean! It's like food that you or I would make at home if we took the time, but eaten in a fun, charming atmosphere, it all tastes that much better. The menu is practically endless with something for everyone, and there's a vibe about Rutabegorz that just... More

The location of this restaurant is so unique. I felt like I was in some other place than Fullerton. (new York city or san Francisco?) The food is what you might expect in a coffee house in the 60's Very healthy and very good. Their drinks are many and the prices are reasonable. We enjoyed ourselves very much.
