Get with it Rubio's. No nutritional info regarding gluten free items anywhere to be found. Manager wasn't even familiar with the items or ingredients that would have gluten. I won't be back until you update your menu.

Dining with friends touring San Diego for the first time, got filled full and fulfilled, having been courteously served by hardworking restaurant crews, delicately prepared appetizing and healthy foods. The place being so acceptably orderly and clean.

Rubios has good food and very reasonably priced. Great Salsa Bar and Fish Tacos. But I really enjoy their Salads and Shrimp entress as well. They make a great Chicken Chop Salad.

Simple menu prepared for each order and so delicious. Help yourself to the salsa bar while you wait a minute or two. We often order and bring it home. Try the cheese enchiladas and for sure try the fish tacos. Most excellent.

When you are in San Diego, don't bother going to Rubio's. what you will realize very quickly is that Rubio's Tacos are just garbage in comparison to street tacos in SD. I was very disappointed by my first meal in San Diego and no thanks to Rubio's Didn't bother going back, if you want good tacos, go to El Zarape.

Rubio's fish tacos has been a staple since college. Now that I live on the east coast this is the one stop I have to make when visiting family.

Yes, it's fast food... but the fish tacos are great. I'll definitely eat here again. Friendly staff.

I caught on to Rubios in the late 1990's, since, this fast paced short order Latino kitchen has made quite a bit of headway in the San Diego taqueria scene. Their fish tacos are delicious and the chicken with house made mole is delightful. Definitely planning a return visit.

There are a lot of locations, so a local might laugh that we even reviewed it - BUT as non-locals it was pretty good, quick "clean" tasting food.

I had the tilapia tacos, best I've ever had. Too bad it was in a mall food court, they need more exposure of their fabulous food.
