Just tried this place yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised. Ordered the gringo burrito and loved it. Cool little spot in the heart of downtown Fullerton. Service was good and I am looking forward to trying more of their menu.

I haven't eaten here in 20 years. I came back to have lunch with my daughter. The food was great as always but the service was terrible. Once the food hit the we were forgotten about for over an hour. We had to finally go request our check. I drove over an hour to eat there. Never again. See More

My kids and I went for our pre-Christmas Eve dinner, the one when we get together to split time up with the different families. We went at 5:30 PM with reservat...ions for a party of 7 at that time and got seated right away. Besides being very reasonably priced, meaning cheap even for a restaurant, the food was delicious. Every one of us enjoyed what we got. I had a cup of Chicken Tortilla soup that was very good. I followed that with an item from the Munchies menu. If I knew how big the "munchie" was going to be, I would have skipped the soup. The Quesadilla with Shrimp and Avocado was fantastically delicious with jack cheese and mild green chiles melted in a whole wheat tortilla and served with guacamole, salsa and sour cream on the side. It was perfectly made. And our waiter stayed ahead of us on the soda refills as well.

I highly recommend the Fullerton Rutabegorz.

Delicious eclectic mixture of food. I had artichoke dip, vegetable stew, and shrimp pasta. All were excellent. Service was great as well. Thank you Dane for an awesome dining experience!

We no longer live in the area, but whenever we get to Fullerton it is definitely on our list of places to return to. The portions are excellent and the food is super fresh. The cocky leeky soup and brown bread is a must!

What I love about The Ruta is they focus on local, healthy ingredients and good, healthy meals while also making everything taste amazing. I have never gone hom...e from any of their locations without a full, happy belly - and usually leftovers! Do yourself a favor and try the Garlic Chicken, whether sandwich, wrap, or salad. I've had all three and they're all delicious. #LoveMyRuta See More

I love everything about Rutas; the awesome friendly staff, the delicious and healthy food, the décor. I eat there at least once or twice a week. I am very grateful Rutas is here in Fullerton!

Thanks to Dane and the rest of the staff for a fantastic wedding dinner! It was as relaxed, hospitable, and enjoyable as we had hoped, and my husband and I were delighted. I highly recommend Rutabegorz for any day dining out, but now I know it's also great for special events.
It's that time of year again...PUMPKIN COOKIES are here!
