Salad too hot to eat?

I was taken by surprise at first bite when my chicken salad with orange dressing was too spicy to eat. I managed a few bites before I had to just say, "No more". A worker came by and asked how things were, but did not wait for my reply. An older man came to our table and looked at my... read more

We were pleased to find this nice spot while escaping the extreme crowds in old town Scottsdale. Nice selection of beers on ice as you walk in the door and great menu choices. The food was freshly prepared and delicious and would recommend even though this would be considered a chain restaurant.

Clean, bright, busy and tasty. The grandkids love their salmon tacos. The salsas are fantastic, and the service is very friendly. Parking is easy and the neighborhood safe. We go here on a regular basis. They also serve beer.

This is our neighborhood fast food place. While I am not a huge fan of chains Rubio's does a fantastic job of always having new items on their menu, and fantastic service. No matter how busy they are, food is always consistent and fast!

I'm not a big fan of chains, but the fish tacos at Rubio's are insane! The price is reasonable, especially for environmentally friendly seafood and the service is great too. There are probably great local places with killer fish tacos in Phoenix, but you can always depend upon Rubio's!

Wish I had my $9 back. 3 stupid street tacos and a small tea. $9.29 ?? are you kidding? What a rip. Subway is next door and for about $5 I get a 6" sub and drink. Boo hiss. the Gourmet tacos here are pretty good. I accidentally mistook the street tacos. Tiny. Flavorless. Boring. Friends can't allow friends to... More

Make a point of eating here before visiting customers in the area. Great mahi mahi fish tacos. Delicious salsa bar. Service is very good for a "fast food" style restaurant.

The local company I work for took me here twice while I was in Phoenix for training. I only agreed to go back because I enjoyed the first visit. It wasn't the BEST I have ever had as far as fish/seafood tacos go, but I would recommend it for a fairly inexpensive lunch that won't leave you sleepy afterwards. I... More
