Great food!

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.

I've been coming to Rutabegorz since moving to Fullerton in 1976. The vibe of coffeehouse, hippie health food hasn't change. It is located in downtown Fullerton in an old house and expanded to the north into another house. Mismatched tables and chairs with lots of pictures and artwork on the walls complete the ambience. While the general gist of the... More

I eat here at least once a week. The food is fresh and healthy, and the portion size generous. I usually call ahead and get it to go and they have it ready within 10 minutes. Really friendly staff too.

Always fresh - always tasty - always worth the trip. No way for me to pick a favorite salad here. I am working my way through the menu - and am in no hurry to finish the adventure. They have locations in Tustin and Orange as well - but this is my go to!

This is one of Fullerton's go-to restaurants. The food is always delicious, and plentiful. Great soups, fantastic sandwiches, snacks and salads. My personal favorite sandwich is the Turkey Cranberry Bliss. It's a huge pile of Turkey layered on squaw bread with cream cheese, cranberry sauce, walnuts and other goodies. Big enough to split, (maybe add a cup of the Cocky... More

Love the hummus, excellent sandwiches! Home made cookies are a must and the cakes are like mom used to make
