They may no longer have indoor seating at the new location but the food is still great. Had some nachos and a taco salad and didn't even have to get out of the car to get it. Took it down to the levee and watched...More

This is absolutely the best Mexican food in Winona. You can get the tacos as American or Mexican style. Great service, atmosphere, and location.

Having read other excellent reviews, we decided to try Rubio's. The site is OK for a small-town shopping mall. Our first bad clue was the chips and salsa--the chips appeared to be factory made, rather small, and not appealing; the salsa reminded us of thinned-out...More

We eat here at least once a week. The Rubio Family all works here together. They are very friendly and you will get a good, home cooked and homemade meal. Their kitchen is open to the bar so you can see in and it is...More

Someone from the Rubio family welcomes and seats you, someone else from the family cooks...just how a small, neighborhood restaurant should be. I need to eat Gluten Free and they had several menu options that fit the bill. The lunch buffet is quick and very...More
