This is one of three Rutabegorz in the County. The other two are in Fullerton and Tustin. All are in buildings that are non-traditional for a restaurant.
You seat yourself here and the menus are newsprint and probably ten pages long. I have certain dishes here that I love and others that are just pathetic and I can't believe they charge you for them (primarily the cheese bread). Once you figure out what you like, it's a great place. I generally take out of town visitors here because there is a lot of variety and character.
Vegetarian black bean chili
Garlic Chicken Salad
Veggie Thai Salad
Chicken Spinach crepes
Walnut that kissed the chicken sandwich
I don't like:
A lot of people also like the seafood enchiladas, but they are super cheesy for me.
The salads are generally huge, so be prepared. I think their soup selection is sort of lame. The sanwiches are generally good, but maybe a little overpriced for me.
Service varies. In Orange it is ok. I've waited forever at the Fullerton location for coffee refills. For the most part the servers are great and friendly, but there are just random ones who are busy dealing with friends or can't handle the crowds.
Be warned: THe brownie sundae is HUGE. enough for 3 people.
The coconut almond bars are rad.
Great microbrews beers.
