I ordered the Casa Margarita light and the taste bud tostada made with the killer chili. It was really good and the drink was... More

My wife and I are regulars at the Tustin Rutabegorz. The food is fresh and healthy. Great salads and sandwiches. A fun place to bring your well behaved dog and eat on the patio. I love the Peasant Mushrooms.

Not really my cup of tea. It's still got that hippie vibe from the 70's and service is slow. it okay in a pinch but there are better restaurants in the area.

I have been a loyal patron of this restaurant for quite a few years. The food is fresh, healthy and tasty (usually!). However, the service is just not good. The servers all seem familiar with the products but they are just extremely inattentive. They leave customers sitting at tables without greeting them for up to ten minutes. They do not... More

Over this last summer we probably visited this restaurant 10 times. The salads are just great and the sandwiches are fresh and very flavorful. My problem is the cookies and fresh baked items, I just have a hard time staying away.

Met a group of friends here, and was very pleased. They had a large and varied menu with plenty of healthy options---mostly salads and sandwiches. I really enjoyed my fancy grilled cheese sandwich. Everyone in the group seemed happy with their dinners too. The tables were packed pretty close together, and the service was fine, but not exceptional. I'll definitely... More
