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

Was looking for something a little different, so decided to stop by Rubio's Mexican restaurant. Ordered a chicken bowl salad and it was unusual but really good. Good blend of salad and chicken. Rubio's also lets you choose your own salsa from a selection of four. It was a nice relaxing place for lunch.

Never ate here before and did not realise it was a "chain" until I saw the back of the menu. Nethertheless, we were very impressed with the food, really tasty and very fresh. We had the fish tacos, and shrimp salad with mandarin dressing, very good. The kids enjoyed their meals too, quesadillas and tacos. (The churros that came with... More

We have become regular Tuesday patrons since we discovered Rubio's about six weeks ago. The fish tacos are an astounding $1.50 after 2:30 pm every Tuesday! They are simply the best fish tacos I have ever eaten, anywhere. They place freshly fried, beer battered Alaskan Pollock on a warm white corn tortilla. It gets drizzled with a zesty white sauce...
