I had the "Gourmet Shrimp Tacos".... WOW!!! So delicious. Price was fair for shrimp tacos and I had the combo so it had chips and refried beans. Beans were great and the chips and salsa were also great. 3-5 salsa choices. It is a very casual spot with some outdoor seating. And great fresh brewed Mango Tea. I would go... More

This is a restaurant that my family enjoys going to about twice a month. The fish tacos are always good and their experiments like Shrimp/Bacon Burritos are great. Give it a try.

We usually come to Rubio's if we don't want to go too far for a quick fix of fish tacos. Not too far from and close to the library. Service is pretty fast. Price is alright for a fast food joint. The tacos are done well and are tasty. I can have a couple of tacos to satisfy me.

I took my two grandsons here for a light supper. I was a bit disappointed in the child's meal. Not much food for the price. One liked his taquitos; the other ate most of his burrito, but it was very sloppy for him. I told him to eat it with a fork. My fish taco was loaded with stuff and... More

A wide variety of seafood specialties makes Rubio's a destination! Reasonably priced and always fresh, their food is excellent. The fish tacos are great and on Tuesdays are at a reduced price. The street tacos are great as well - my favorite is the carnitas street taco.
