Probably one of the best order at the counter style restaurants of all the chains. Our kids LOVE Rubios, my husband and I can always find something healthy and tasty and they always have good local beers, too. This is our favorite location of all of them. Nothing beats a day at Del Mar Beach beaching followed by some fish... More

We discovered this gem while walking back from the Design District of Solana beach on the way back to our hotel: Courtyard Marriot. We stopped in to pick up some take out so we could eat it by the fire pit by our hotel pool. The menu was amazing! We've been away 2 weeks and were craving healthy meal options.... More

Didn't realize this was a chain when I arrived. Learned that later. That said, the fish taco was excellent. Service quick. Restaurant clean.

I get it gourmet tacos ! But they are just tacos !!!!! The food is always very good but i just can see why par $4. for one taco, it seems very expensive. Of all the fast food chains this is one of my favorite.

Best fast food around. One of the original locations of this chain founded in San Diego. Good for salads, burritos and tacos. Most selections are much better than expected, considering it's a fast food concept. Manager always attentive here and service is excellent.

We wanted some fast Mexican food and found this restaurant from reviews here. We loved our California rice bowls and my daughter got one of their salads. Salsas are fresh and delicious. We plan to go again before we leave the area. Good prices too.
