I have a mixed view of the place, first I will admit that I am not a fan of standing in line to order food. Especially when it crawls at a snails pace, not sure why it takes to long to take an order or...More

This chain has good "faster" food at a fair price. This location has very helpful staff with outstanding positive attitudes. The restaurant is kept very clean including the salsa bar area.

World's best fish tacos and homemade salsa - the fire-roasted is best. Staff very friendly. Hard to go wrong with the food.

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.
