Good Mexican Fast Food

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... read 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

Rubio's usually is a bit above most fast food style eateries. In fact when we previously dined at this location we were very please with the service and the quality of the food. The trip the food was up to its usual standards. It was freshly made and made to order. However, this visit the level of service left much... More

In Palm Springs on holidays. Decided on a quick dinner for a change. Another hotel guests suggested we try this place for $1.50 fish tacos on Tuesday's. Place was packed but our orders were taken quickly, given numbers to put on our tables and food delivered to you. In the meantime, you can help yourself to different salsas and condiments.... More

The specialty here is paddock fish tacos. My friend had that complete plate, soft drink and chips. Assorted salsas available. I ended up with the shrimp burrito full plate. The server came to the table many times to ask if all was satisfactory. He even pointed out I had food on my chin. Very polite and helpful. Food did not... More

Rubio's started 40+ years ago featuring fish tacos. They've grown over the years to offer burritto, enchilada and taco selections with fish, chicken and beef. No bar. Beer only. I tried the salmon tacos and my daughter had the Spicy Shrimp Tacos. Try the original fish taco as well! Clean, good courteous service. Manager making the rounds and keeping an... More

Amazing fresh food with fabulous flavours. Could eat the Chipotle Orange Salad with grilled Shrimp every day. Who needs to pay big prices for sit down Mexican seafood?

A family member, who does not favor such fare, chose this California chain when we insisted on a Mexican lunch. It was absolutely wonderful! The place is squeaky clean, everything is fresh and I personally tasted the best burrito I ever put in my mouth - Burrito Especial. Other proclaimed the fish tacos as outstanding. If only they would open... More
