The food was excellent. Be sure to download their menu to look at their seasonal favorites. A group of three of us had lunch there and was impressed by the variety of menu items. If you are a vegetarian there are lots of options. The...turkey sandwich with walnuts and cranberries excellent. The curry chicken wrap was very tasty. The service was friendly and efficient.More

This restaurant has been a popular place to meet friends for well over 40 years. Only parking is on the street but it is worth it. Come early for lunch. Only problem space, if you are there for lunch come early

This is my favorite restaurant in Fullerton. I love the Southwestern Quinoa with chicken, but my favorite is the pumpkin curry soup with mushrooms. My husband loves their huge salads and teas.

This place has been open for many years and still offers excellent food with little preparation in big portions. It must be one of the last hippy resorts in the entire area. There are all sorts of figures hand-painted on the walls and a vast...collection of percolators, providing a warm and interesting environment. Food is basic, (like the furniture): sandwiches, salads, cookies... but of good quality and little processing. Salads come on big plastic bowls! Service is friendly and helpfulMore

Rutabagorz is great. They have an extensive menu with many vegetarian and vegan options. I am not a vegetarian, but I've had several of their vegetarian fare and they're always tasty. This is a place where you can order some great chicken cacciatore, your wife...can order some veggie tacos (or twocos), your daughter can order a half soup/half sandwich (their chicken and rice soup is killer), and your younglings can get a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Great choices. Great taste. Cool atmosphere. We love Ruta's. So should you.More

Have been going here for many years. Picked up take out. Was ok but not as good as eating in. Also seems to be lacking something. Got a bbq chicken sandwich, comes with no side. Maybe an off day for them. Big positions as usual...but not as good as we remember.More

Cute little unique place...I don’t love the food though! Lots of people do...there are many options - mostly super healthy, but it is tasteless to me! Good service and a fun spot to try, but I won’t choose the come here again...

Great food, bohemian atmosphere. Seat yourself, laid back but efficient wait staff. Hubby and I can be found here about every 10 days, other times we've gotten it to go!

I love this place! The food is good, it's charming and unique. A fun place to go. However, many of my friends refuse to go because it is very noisy and it is all the people who are there to eat as the kitchen is...well removed from the dining area.More

We have eaten at Rutabegorz for many years. I think it opened about 1975. We have gone there since its opening. The food is unusual but very good. We love Rutabegorz.

A nice little restaurant with a lot of choices on the menu. The staff here is always friendly and helpful. The prices are about what I would expect to pay in this area.

It is our go to restaurant. We go at least once a week. it's usually for dinner but have been there for lunch on several occasions. I have hosted small events at the restaurant such as birthdays (adults), and Ladies luncheon. We have never had...a bad plate. It's all delicious and the portions are good. We look forward to the 49 cents dip of the month. There bar menu is small but but we always find some we enjoy. The staff super friendly and the manager takes time to visit the customers and develop a relationship.More

This is a great restaurant with a menu that includes all types of food that is delicious. They also serve vegetarian food, and have a nice selection of wine. All their dishes are plentiful, so you might want to split or be prepared for a...doggy bag. Great atmosphere, in old town Tustin with lots of cute shops.More
