I've had the opportunity to visit all three locations and have found the quality consistent. For some reason I prefer the ambiance of Fullerton over the other two. Orange has a terrible parking situation which leads me to the other two depending upon my current field assignments.

So many choices on the menu. The ingredients are fresh. The portions are very generous. Manly vegetarian items are available. I have eaten here many times and am always very pleased. They have a variety of drinks and shakes to tempt you as well.

My wife and I haven't been to this restaurant for several years. We thought it was smaller back then and I asked our server if they had expanded and was told us that it was the same size as before. Several small and medium sized rooms gave this unique place a lot of charm. The menu was extensive, the food... More

Rutabegorz Restaurant is a true "Local' restaurant. The location is on a quiet back street near Fullerton College nestled in an old building with an eclectic flair. It reminds me of a side-street, multi-room coffee house atmosphere where you meet up with friends, grab a table of your choice and share. The food is healthy, fresh and abundant on each... More

Love the salads here. My favorite is the Italiano but I have had most of the other salads and they are all good--and huge! And there is so much more. If I don't order a salad I have the Veggie Mu Shu Medley. When it is busy it is noisy and the service gets slow but the food is worth... More

We have been eating here for years. It is definitely a hidden gem. They have great tasting healthy food. The menu is extensive. Everything I've tried has been great. If you want to indulge, try the cookies.

Went here with my daughter after seeing the high ratings on TA. When I got there, I didn't realize it was so close to Fullerton College. I kick myself for never knowing about this place then. If I would have known, it would have been my favorite place to eat! Fast forward a few years - like today - and... More

Top notch service. Very attentive, kept my water and ice tea full. Food was hot & delicious. The soups are made fresh everyday. The place is always busy, that is a good sign .

This place has always been a favorite of mine. Up until recently....the food has changed and the atmosphere is different.
