I really like Rubio's. They have tasty food that is quick and fairly healthy (comparatively speaking, of course) and doesn't break the bank. I really enjoy the verde shrimp tacos, and the sea bass rice bowl special they had a while ago. Seriously, if you see that come up again, get it. It was fab!

Walked in and saw a dead roach on the floor. Usually that is when customers leave, but what restaurant doesn't. Anyway, the food is bland. There is a salsa bar with lime/lemon wedges, etc to add to your bland food. I would consider this fast food. Not tasty.

The wait time for food was excessive, the restaurant was empty and several tables were dirty. We received our food and my sons food went to someone else, once corrected my sons food was brought to us incorrect three times.

When we walked up there, it took a few minutes for them to acknowledge us because the staff was talking to each other..when they finally took our order, they didnt sell their products..The store...

I've been going here since they opened and I don't think I've ever had a bad meal. The manager is super friendly and always greets us with a big smile. The best value is on "Taco Tuesday" where they sell fish tacos for $1.50 each. I take my teenage Son in there every Tuesday and get him 3 tacos for... More

We offen go for lunch. But we were out and hungry and just didn't want to have to wait for a table on a Friday night. So my daughter and I said oh let's run in and grab a taco. And for under $20.00 we both had full meals and a full tummy. Just can't beat the street tacos or... More

The first restaurant was opened in 1983 in San Diego by Ralph Rubio and his father, Ray, who started the fish taco phenomenon that spread across the nation. Today, Rubio’s menu has grown from The Original Fish Taco® to include additional chef-crafted seafood recipes that feature shrimp, wild salmon and ono. In addition to sustainable seafood, Rubio’s offers chargrilled chicken and steak, fresh made guacamole and salsas and sauces that are prepared daily.
