I took the whole family here -- my wife, kids and grandchildren. Rubio's is a place we normally enjoy, but the staff at this one was incredibly inefficient and inattentive to detail. It took us close to 45 minutes to get our food and even...More

It is a restaurant that takes fast food to a whole new level because of the great staff and food. Had fish tacos and loved them. Thanks!

Rubio's is one of our choices when we have a limited amount of time to eat. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. I enjoy the lobster burrito and my wife enjoys the fish tacos.

I will explain exactly why they deserve only 2 Stars. I purposefully ordered a steak burrito combo. Upon receiving the order I proceeded to open the burrito very carefully to find out the ratio of meat versus the rest. I was more than disappointed when...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.
