Came for my first visit and got 2 fish tacos, 1 chicken taco and rice and chips on the side. Felt a little over priced for what you get but the fish tacos were not bad and they were a good size. Chicken taco was pretty tasty too but I did not like the salsa. Rice was bland and overcooked... More

Filthy, slow, full trash, empty bins. After my first extremely positive Rubio's experience at a previous location, I had high expectations to try another restaurant in the chain. DISAPPOINTING is an understatement. The place wasn't that busy, especially for a weekend, but it was ridiculously slow and unkempt. Watching the cashier rip our water cups apart with the same hands... More

Ate at this location twice while in Temecula for a short visit. Had the veggie California bowl one time, and the veggie burrito the next. Both were excellent. My wife had the same but with chicken. Both were very good. Overall, a pleasant surprise. Would definitely return. Really enjoyed the healthy and tasty dishes. Portions were very appropriate, price was... More

I went November 2nd. I ordered the balsamic talapia salad. WOW! Where's the lettuce? This location is not as good as highway 79. Half a bowl., my wife's taco shell was hard., maybe it's just the way the manager runs it., come on!! It's lettuce!!! Manager told me its measured out., well then use a much smaller bowl.,

Came in for the first time and ordered the original taco plate which was excellent and a fair price. Excellent lunch stop and will definitely be back in the future. Place was clean and the staff very helpful.

Rubio's is a good place to go if you are in the mood for fast Mexican seafood. The fish tacos and related items ( like fish burritos etc..) are all good. Just keep in mind that it is fast food. Every time that I have eaten here I have walked away satisfied that I got what I wanted and enjoyed... More

On a recent visit over Spring Break, my family enjoyed the food so much that they asked to return a second time in the same week! The shrimp burrito and fish tacos were a hit. Went to two locations in Temecula, one in the Target shopping center off Rancho California and the other one on Temecula Parkway.

Never been to a Rubio's before but needed a quick lunch after a winery tour. Impressed with the setup, the service and the food, plus the very helpful waitress who brought the food to the table. The fish tacos were excellent. Wish we had a similar chain in Canada!

I went here last weekend to give another chance after a subpar outing a few months ago. Well, it wasn't good. I had the two fish taco plate and it was awful. The fish wasn't prepared properly and the salsa was not right. Not acceptable since this is Rubio's claim to fame. The kids at the table complained that the... More
