This is my favorite place for lunch. I come here at least once a week. The food, service and outdoor patio is perfect.

We have enjoyed Rubio's Fish Tacos for years and were glad we stopped for dinner while nearby. I would definitely return or stop at another Rubio's when it crosses my path.

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.
