“Ruta's still the best in Tustin!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

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 chance you get visit OLD TOWN TUSTIN and take in a meal at this healthy, and delicious eatery. I give RUTA'S 5 STARS!

“A Welcome Blast From the Past”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

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 Bean Tostada and the Mu Shu Burrito. We are also quite partial to their olalllieberry pie when available. The service is always friendly with an older, more permanent wait staff.

In the artificial world of the OC, the restaurant itself is real with its old wooden benches and off beat decor. This is the antithesis of the ubiquitous chain restaurant experience and a pleasant change..

“Classic Old-Town Tustin”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

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.
