Fabulous salads

Funky choice - especially at Christmas time!! Ruta's is a long time favorite in Tustin, with mixing bowl sized salads one of the best choices. Desserts are excellent - service is reliably good. If you are looking for a casual restaurant and you are health conscious, this is a good one!

My wife first came to Rutabegorz several years ago. My Daughter and Son both love the place. I have grown to be a fan also. I have change my consumption of meat and this place offers some great incentives in changing eating habits. I like most of the sandwich variations especially the ham cheese with pear and apricot jam.

If you really like honest whole food kind of restaurant this is the place to go. They make many different salads that are very healthy and delicious. I love the chicken walnut salad. They have caramelized walnuts that are heavenly . A real treat. I would also recommend sharing one of the huge cookies with coffee.

Good menu, but sometimes a little "quirky". They have some strange policies about take out, only can buy a 1/2 dozen of cookies at a time. But location is nicely maintained and accommodates all size groups and has outdoor seating for our furry friends too.

We went to this Rutabegorz (Tustin) the 1st time last week. Arrived promptly at 11am. Tried an Item from their June Specials list, which was sliced ham, sliced pear pinnini with a wonderful cheese and served with Apricot jam, and barbeque chips. That alone was enough to get me to try it, and it was sooo vey good. Nice atmosphere,... More

I love this spot for their fresh tortilla soups. It's full of vegetables. They have a variety of large portion salads. They have smoothies and wraps. They make their deserts fresh as well. It gets packed for dinner. Something to please everyone on their menu. They have another in old town Orange as well.

Food and atmosphere are worth being a regular customer. I never really liked apple pie till I tried it here. The german chocolate cake is beyond yummy when they serve it. (It's not a regular dessert item) We just keep coming back to this place!

Cute restaurant with a fun vibe. Grab a table, booths have seriously uncomfortable bench seats. If you go in the evening, get the cheese fondue! (Not available at lunch). And you can't go wrong with any of the soups.
