Love the assortment of fish tacos. Delicious! Great quality - so much better than you'd ever expect from a fast chain. Staff was very helpful in assisting us with identifying possible dairy for our dairy-intolerant family member.

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.

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.

We live in northern Cal. Whenever we travel anywhere near Vacaville we always eat at Rubio's. Always good 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.
