Fish Tacos

It is Rubios. I have found them to be fairly consistent. I just ordered wrong and got the regular fish tacos which are fried instead of the ones which are grilled. Service was fast and everyone pleasant. We ordered to go and when we sat to eat, there were no surprises. Always a good thing!

Clean restaraunt friendly staff. Not too busy at all. Nice outdoor seating section that's covered. One of the few times I sat outside and wasn't bothered by birds.

Rubio's is known for its fish tacos and burritos. Combine those with a variety of sauces ranging from tasty top tangy, and you've got a great meal at a reasonable price.

I always have the steak burrito and I always ask them to grill two fresh jalapeno peppers for me. Portions of rice and beans are not so big, but the burrito makes up for it. Goes well with a Corona and Lime:-)

Great food and always fast and friendly service. Their fish taco's are the best in town (they should be since they invented the fish taco). Other selections are just as good. Unlike other fast food places they have not become complacent and the food and service are as good as when they first opened!
