Pretty good food, good service, clean place, very good value. Parking can be limited but if you are careful, you can get in and out without a confrontation with the entitled elderly.

This is a new store and the decor is very pleasant. Lots of light. Indoor and outdoor seating. Line to order can be slow at meal time. Great food. The salads are huge.

I went looking for this Rubio's. It was supposedly located in the shopping mall. But, I couldn't find it. It wasn't on the Shopping Mall's directory either. I think they might have closed the location.

Tried the fish taco special offered on Tuesday. Thought it was very good. We were planning to return to try the tacos, as they looked good too, but didn't make it back.

This place is famous for their fish tacos, but I've never had them, I always order their delicious "gourmet" tacos, the shrimp ones are excellent. You get really good quality meat that is actually grilled not fried (I am from Mexico and get super annoyed when carne asada is cooked in oil). Fresh ingredients, beans are very good as well....

We really like the food, it's very fresh. But having said that, for what it costs, it should be a full service restaurant.

This business is in the shopping center (Town Center) on the first floor. Self service salsa bar, healthful menu options, and fast service. The mahi mahi grilled tacos were excellent; served on a corn tortilla with a tasty thousand island style dressing, corn, and all the toppings.

Not all locations are the same, but this one is a great place for lunch. Busy and popular, food is fresh and delicious. Tried the citrus shrimp and the fish tacos - both were excellent. Salsas also good.

The fish taco is why you came. And it is worth it. This location easy to find in a shopping centre. Helpful cashier. Decent prices. Not much more to say than go and enjoy.

On Sept. 19th 2014 the young man who was obviously in training could not make change for a hundred dollar bill. After offering me many ones, I opted to use a credit card. I admit I was distracted with my 8 mos old son and stupidly never asked for my $100 bill back. After I got home I immediately realized... More
