Great food. Excellent Value!!!

We come here every time we go to Palm Springs. The food is fresh and yummy. We get the chicken tacos or the fish tacos and both are awesome. This place is similar to Baja Fresh but much better. Great prices. Efficient staff.

I go to Rubio's often. I LOVE their food. I'd describe it as "Fresh-Mex". It's Mexican food, elevated. Always fresh. Many many many healthy choices. Not your usual Mexican food. Even the chicken burrito is elevated. It's fast, cheap (for the quality), fresh, delish!

I have eaten here many times and am always amazed that it is a chain restaurant. The food is very fresh and has just the right amount of spice. They are not stingy with the shrimp or anything else. The prices are great and the staff is always in good spirits.

My husband and I both ordered the Steak Burrito Especial's. They tasted good, good flavor and a good size, the only problem was that they were very light on the steak. I had to look in the burrito a couple times to see if there was any meat at all, not much. Chips were OK. Beans were OK. Salsa bar... More

We went here on a Saturday evening, around 8:30 pm. The restaurant closes at 9, so we squeaked in under the wire. The food is good, fresh and relatively fast considering what a large take-out service they provide. I had a 'bowl' with shrimp, rice, lettuce, black beans, and more. It was delicious and just the right amount for a... More

Ordered a chicken burrito. Well there may have been a little but very little chicken in a mixture of white rice tasteless maybe a bean mix wrapped in a commercial industrial tasteless tortilla. I did tell the manager who apologized that he had to serve such crap. The thought of it makes me vomit. I am sure that the plastic... More
