This restaurant was interesting. It was like a fast food when you order but they bring the food out on actual plates like a sit down.

Had the taco plate with chicken and stake tacos. Decent food. Was expecting a bit more in terms of the sides for the 'plate'... got just a few cips and 2 spoons of been a :(. Had better in other places. The craft IPA local beer was good but I thought overpriced at $4.50. It's $3.25 next door at Smashburger.... More

I won't go back here, food quality is inconsistent and usually poor. Its definitely fast food with people preparing it in front of you.

I am continuously impressed with how good the food is here. And they seasonally have specials to offer. It is also a good place to take kids. And many gluten free options.

Similar to Chipotle near the movie theater. They do not make it in front of you and serve you on actual plates. Burritos come with chips and salsa for $6.99. Not the greatest but on par with other fast food Mexican places.

Nothing more to say ! If you want Mexican food this is not the place . Healthy food maybe , but no taste at all , maybe the salsa gives it a little flavor . Can't taste the meat .

My friend recommended the Vegetable burrito, which was freshly made with beans, salsa, green peppers, zucchini onions and a few other sauces. This was served with freshly... More

Nothing like it. I even have my out of state relatives craving this place. It will make you feel like you're on a beach in Mexico. Baja Shrimp Burrito.

This was my first visit to Rubio's. Nice diverse menu. Quality of food was very good. Operations are smooth - ordering, making of hot meal to delivering your meal to your table. Portion of order was appropriate. We would like to eat here again.

I've never had anything else but their fish tacos and they are the best. I live in Illinois and crave these tacos.
