“Good food, nice patio”

Restaurant details
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I was looking for a place to meet a friend for lunch in Tustin and checked out TripAdvisor, of course. I'd heard about Rutabegorz but never eaten there. It's in an old bank building on the main street of Old Town Tustin, with eclectic decor and tin ceilings. There's a huge menu with healthy choices. But I chose the BLT with avocado and cheese--not terribly healthy but tasted good. We ate on the patio which faces the street, but it was quiet enough to talk easily. They don't take reservations, but tables were available inside throughout lunchtime. There is street parking and also a parking ramp behind the restaurant, but the left turn up the ramp is easy to miss. Also, make sure you look for West Main--my friend was late since he was looking on the East side. All in all, a nice place for a quiet lunch with lots of choices. After lunch make sure to drive around and look at the Victorian and Craftsman houses on the nearby side streets.

I've been eating here for years. There's great variety on the menu, some of it seasonal. The salads are huge, and I wish they'd offer a smaller version, too. Try the tropical iced tea-wonderful and unsweetened. The soups are great, too. You can't go wrong here.

A throwback to the 70s, Rutabegorz has delicious salads, wraps and "health" food that we've all take for granted. Try the garlic chicken salad, you won't regret it.

There is something for everyone on the menu. Vegetarian or carnivores. The lemon bars and cheesecake are to die for. We had dinner there on Friday night and would've gone back for Sunday brunch but family members wanted to eat earlier.

If you love a lot of great healthy food and feeling of natural style environment...this is the place to see. For me, it kind of has the feeling of the old hippie days when we all ate health food and enjoyed old rustic type buildings with lost of atmostphere!
