Hunger alarm went off while shopping nearby so decided to give it a try. As I came in a customer left and it was EMPTY. Not a good sign. The staff person was pleasant and very patient with all the questions I had about various menu items. I got a lime quinoa salad with blackened salmon. It came in a huge bowl (but it barely filled half of it). It was very tasty and I felt somewhat virtuous eating a healthy meal. There was a nice salsa bar on offer also. One thing I hated: table was sticky, so I moved to another, which was also sticky. I wasn't about to move again, so put some napkins down and the stickiness kept them in place. I moved my leg and the chair felt sticky too. When I left there were lots of people inside. There were tables outside and a pleasant fountain.

I've never had a taco before ... I know ... I know!!

I ordered the Mahi Mahi, and for some reason in my head I had confused this with Ahi Tuna. My fault entirely.

So, apart from learning I really don't care for Mahi Mahi, the restaurant was fantastic. Very clean, the service was great - and everyone else looked like they were enjoying their tacos.

Will visit again!

Have had Rubio’s before in other states but we recently moved to the bay area and my wife scouted out a Rubio’s that would be on our day trip with my parents. This was our first California Rubio’s so we weren’t sure what to expect but as soon as we walked in I was relieved. This was a very clean restaurant with lots of windows and lighting, familiar Rubio’s décor, outdoor seating, and we were welcomed by an extremely polite and hard-working employee named Cody. It’s been a very long time since I’ve encountered an employee that was as friendly and helpful and she made all the difference in our visit. My wife loves their shrimp tacos so she ordered those and I got a California bowl with grilled mahi mahi. Parents got the lobster burrito. The food is made to order so it does take a little longer to prepare than fast food but it was worth the wait. All agreed it was a perfect choice for lunch.

Yay! Quality mexican fast food comes to Cupertino! We were thrilled to see a Rubios open up here, offering great tasting freshly prepared fish tacos and burritos that are very yummy. Nice salsa bar and beverage bar means you can tailor things to your taste and quench your thirst.

Only complaint is like most things, this place keeps getting more expensive and is no longer the bargain it once was.

This replaced a dismal Freebirds Burritos that was absolutely terrible… and given by the crowds and quality, this place will likely do fine.
