Rutabegorz is a Fullerton landmark. It has been here for years putting out consistent interesting food. They do not serve red meat here but do serve chicken and tuna. Lots of amazing salads and interesting dishes such as hummus, quesadilla, lasagne (vegetarian) and many more. They do server bottled beer and wine here. No full bar or on tap beer.... More

We eat there frequently as a couple and with groups of friends. Menu features a wide variety of large-portion salads and sandwiches. Good food, satisfactory service but somewhat noisy to carry on effective conversations with groups. Service can be slow at peak times due to custom menu items and limited staff. Still in all, an excellent alternative to chain restaurants.

I had dinner here with a friend tonight. The atmosphere is funky and cozy. The staff were friendly and helpful. Portions were very ample and everything was tasty. The apple pie was outstanding. This is a really good place to go for a casual, inexpensive meal.

I love this restaurant! I especially love the great variety in salads on the menu! Portion sizes are very generous….you could even split a salad with a dining partner. Nice, cozy ambiance! Yummy homemade baked cookies! Seasonal items not to miss: pumpkin hummus and pumpkin cookies! Every visit to Fullerton I make it a point to go to this restaurant!

This place has super good food & great service. Down to earth atmosphere. Don't forget desert on your way out. Addicted to garlic chicken pasta.
