Love Ruta's for their homemade soups, desserts, salads! Lots of healthy & delicious options. Great if you are trying to eat healthy or vegetarian. This is not a burger place, but you can get just about anything else you could want here. Make sure you try their special appetizer always posted at the table. Very good service as well. A... More

You can't find places like this on the interstate. This is the kind of restaurant that only the locals know and enjoy. Thankfully I know people in Tustin. Salads, Wraps, Sandwiches, enchiladas, tostadas, specialty and seasonal dishes. It has everything and anything one would want from vegetarian to meat eaters delight. And don't forge the Apple Pie or brownie. Its... More

Rutabegorz, known as Ruta's by the locals like myself, nestled in Tustin's Old Towne area looks like it landed there from Berkeley in 1968. Housed in an historic building with wooden booths that look like old church pews and old wooden tables and chairs surrounded by local artwork, much of which is for sale, Ruta's has a casual and cozy...

We ordered the Caesar salad with chicken, delicious and HUGE. Lettuce is fresh, not the stuff that's been bagged up and stored for weeks. The oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are fabulous. There is a smaller version of the salad available, it is still large enough to full you up! On other visits we have had soup, falafel, sandwiches, etc. Never... More

Terrific food. Great place for a vegetarian. Big meals but you can get smaller ones or share. Great for take out as well. We go there as often as possible.

Been going here for years for the big salads and homemade desserts. We love the BBQ chicken salad, Italiano salad, cookies, cheesecake with fresh strawberries. The service is not the fastest and the old time booths are not the most comfortable, but these things never keep us away. Love the Christmas tree and gifts mounted on the ceiling during the... More

We arrived to California from a long trip from New York. We were looking for a quick dinner since it was a long day of travel. We found Rutabegroz on trip advisor and it had great reviews. The food and service were both excellent. My daughter and I has code salads which came in a large salad bowl. My wife... More

My wife and I wanted a salad and considered the OTHER big salad restaurant which is nearby in Tustin, but we had not gone back to Rutabegorz for some time and thought we would give it a try, once again. It was just as fun as ever. We chose to sit in one of the small wooden booths on the... More

Great healthy restaurant in Old Town Tustin. Loved the butternut squash lasagna and of course, the pumpkin cookies. A must stop every time I'm back in the OC
