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

This has been one of my favorite restaurants for a long time, but last night's visit delivered a new highlight for me. In addition to their extensive menu, they currently have some great seasonal specials. One of these is the butternut squash lasagna. If you like butternut squash, you'll be in heaven with this dish. If you've never been to... More

Rutabegorz is a Tustin institution that has now also opened in other cities. The menu reads like a book with varied selections from soups to salads to casseroles to fondue. Their salads are huge and delicious. I also love their stuffed peasant mushrooms, their veggie quinoa bowl. Their desserts are great, but I seldom have room for any. In fact,... More

I have enjoyed Rutas for a long time. I know that I will get a healthy meal, a nice portion size, and there is something for everyone to enjoy. The menu has lots of different choices. Generally, you will have food to take home. They have the best brownie sundae and amazing cookies too.

We love Rutabegorz and have been enjoying their healthy, delicious food for years. We love their large, healthy salads; their savory soups and their sandwiches. We also love the location in old town Tustin.

We call it Rutas and have been going there for many years. We tend to go there with friends and many times we bump into people we know. In other words Rutabegorz has a great thing going. Many of the entrees are big enough for 2 people and the menu has a great variety. All healthy and all homemade. Recently... More

We stopped off here on a road trip. Great menu, friendly staff, quirky decor. A great find. I had a coffee drink make with icecream, and a pear and ham grilled sandwich (with apricot jam). Delicious! Hope to be be passing through again so we can try more things on the menu.

I have been dining at Rutabegorz for years, and I always look forward to going. My favorite soup is their Chicken Tortilla and my favorite salad is the BBQ Chicken. You would be hard pressed to finish the whole salad, so splitting with your fellow diner is a good idea. The staff is efficient and the food consistently great. Yummy!!

A true gem in OLD TOWN TUSTIN! Great food, a wonderful staff, and prices that are easy to digest. Rutabgorz is a great place to have a casual meal. You can eat on the patio and bring your canine friend(s) or you can eat inside, either way the food will be delicious and probably good for you too! The next... More
