Great fish tacos at an affordable price. Nice friendly place with a really good menu. Freshly made, with lots of options. Enjoy a cold beer with your fish tacos.

Food was not good, I took the steak taco did eat it but was disappointed. Tables were sticky too. The lady at the counter was very friendly which bumped the rating by one.

We arrived around 6 pm on a Friday night. All the eateries we were interested in were packed and we noticed that this restaurant only had a couple of folks eating in it. Our friends heard it served good food, so we decided to give it a try. First impressions were poor. There were several empty tables with food sitting... More

Stopped here for an early lunch and we were not disappointed. Couple of burritos and two taco platters filled us all. The Oaxaca shrimp taco platter was nicely seasoned. Not to much for this one's tummy. Others might find it to bland. The mixed taco platter of Salmon and Mahi Mahi: should have been both Mahi Mahi - salmon was... More

I will not go here again. The prices are about like Denny's but the food is really poor quality. It does not have a good flavor. Neither my husband or I will return.

It seemed to take 5 minutes per person to order.only one person on cashier. But mgr made it right and was very very nice. The end result was it was worth the wait. I had both types of fish taco and they were both worth coming back for in the future!

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.
