Best place for lunch

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

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
