Very good fish tacos, reasonable prices. Staff was friendly. Wife got a burrito, which was also tasty.

The fish tacos were excellent. Our group also ordered burritos and quesadillas that were good. I really liked the salsa bar.

This is now my Tuesday night stop. 1.50 original fish taco's after 2:30 on Tuesday. Normally they are 2.69. I was in and out in about 10 mins with my dinner in hand and ready to head home for some serious relaxation. The fish is crispy and the sauce they put on standard isn't over powering. I added a bit... More

I had an order of sea bass tacos with chips and refried beans. The tacos were excellent. The chips and salsa bar were also great. The beans were cold and lacking flavor. The staff was pretty friendly but the place looked like a bomb went off in it. It was later in the evening so maybe that is why but... More

I've eaten here several times. I can not say enough about how fresh and yummy they are. They are healthy too! My all time favorite is fish tacos especial. All the fresh spices do a party in my mouth! Happiness! AND did I mention fresh? I love the salsa bar. The only reason I don't give it five stars is... More

Saw an article on Yahoo saying this place is currently beating out Chipotle on being better and better for you. Thought I should check it out. Really glad I did. My friends and I tried three different plates and we all fell in love with this place. Service was very nice and fast. They could tell us about all of... More

I've sent this feedback to the headquarters and wanted to share my not so pleasant experience at my reacent visit of my "all time" favorite restaurant. I remember my first visit to Rubio’s in your Pacific Beach restaurant in about 1986, when I tried my first fish taco/fish burrito combo. It was called the #5 back then. Long it has... More

I ate here twice in the past month. I had heard of it but never been. I was not disappointed. Both times I had the street tacos (not a fan of fish tacos). They were very good - tried both the chicken and steak ones. I got the platter which comes with a small amount of chips and some beans.... More

We used to live in the area and after being gone for a year came back to visit family. Rubio's is one of our favorite fast food restaurants so we stop in whenever we are in town. The owner remembered us and asked about our expat assignment which is amazing since he sees 1000's of people a year. The food... More

In addition to sustainable seafood, Rubio’s offers chargrilled chicken and steak, fresh made guacamole and salsas and sauces that are prepared daily.
