The menu is the same as others, but this location had some great service. The patio area was clean and enjoyable to sit and eat, with plenty of umbrella shade. Food was actually very well presented. A great lunch spot!!!

I go here often because I leave the Smashburger next to it due to its own problems, it's mainly tacos and seafood. Though the seating could use some work, it's great, would recommend.

We try to stay away from "fast food" but the quality of Rubios allows us to indulge. The gourmet chicken and steak tacos are my hands-down favorite. Their black beans make for a healthy side dish. Their salsas are not my favorite, but the quality...More

The fish tacos are as good here as I have ever found. To have such quality from a "fast food" type location is remarkable. The fish is succulent and hot. It is lightly seasoned and covered in a white sauce that is wonderful. The other...More
