It gets packed for dinner. Something to please everyone on their menu. They have another in old town Orange as... read more

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.

I've been coming to this wonderful place for years, and just realized I had not written a TripAdvisor review. My last visit was 3 days ago. As always, the service was friendly and efficient. I was in a soup mood, so I ended up ordering two different kinds - Cockie Leekie and Chicken Rice Veggie. Both were terrific. My partner... More

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...
