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

I would rate Ruta's excellent for value for money and ambiance. We have eaten here for the last twenty years and it has remained consistent in offering large portions of healthy comfort food at reasonable prices. Unlike other Tustin eateries, e.g., Zov’s, they have not raised their prices a lot over the years. Among our favorites dishes are the Black... More

Old-time Tustin restaurant - and we all enjoyed it. Good food and cozy atmosphere. Friendly service too.

Rutas is a fixture in old town with a huge menu filled with fresh and healthy dining options. My favorite is the homemade cocky-leeky soup; it's incredibly good! Another favorite is the Thai Wrap; the peanut sauce is perfection. The servers are always friendly and the atmosphere is bright and funky with kitchsy antiques aplenty.

Great variety of menu items for lunch or dinner. Salads are large, usually good for another meal at home. Seasonal menu is always tempting though my husband and I usually stick to our favorites. Good kid restaurant as well.

In the 70's, I used to drive to the original Rutabegorz in Fullerton for their immense salad menu. For the past 20 years, I have been walking to Rutabegorz in Tustin for the best in flavorful, fresh & healthy food in all of Orange county. The consistency of quality has never diminished in food or service. While I am fixated... More

Cute eclectic restaurant with good selection of menu items. I like their monthly snack special - always a good deal. Nice place when you're in the mood for comfort food.

Stopped by Rutabegorz for dinner before my son and his girlfriend headed out for New Year's Eve festivities. I selected a vegetarian wrap and steamed vegetables. The "kids" selected wraps as well. The service was excellent, the food was fresh and hot, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We used a gift card, but made sure to tip our waiter... More
