Clean restaraunt friendly staff. Not too busy at all. Nice outdoor seating section that's covered. One of the few times I sat outside and wasn't bothered by birds.

It is Rubios. I have found them to be fairly consistent. I just ordered wrong and got the regular fish tacos which are fried instead of the ones which are grilled. Service was fast and everyone pleasant. We ordered to go and when we sat to eat, there were no surprises. Always a good thing!

Rubio's is known for its fish tacos and burritos. Combine those with a variety of sauces ranging from tasty top tangy, and you've got a great meal at a reasonable price.

I always have the steak burrito and I always ask them to grill two fresh jalapeno peppers for me. Portions of rice and beans are not so big, but the burrito makes up for it. Goes well with a Corona and Lime:-)

Great food and always fast and friendly service. Their fish taco's are the best in town (they should be since they invented the fish taco). Other selections are just as good. Unlike other fast food places they have not become complacent and the food and service are as good as when they first opened!

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.
