The Cuban was good. They were short on the menu as they didn't have everything in stock. I got it to go. It was average-good

I love rubios they have the best Cuban food I've had ever. I love the ham croquettes there amazing and the potato meatball appetizer is delicious. The best entrees I have had are the piccodillo and chicken and rice. They marinate the chicken in a beer sauce it tastes amazing!

Went to get a bite to eat. Me being Frita fanatic drove 35 min to try out Rubio's and ended a disappointment because I was going to make this a place of choice. Sadly to say it was awful My Frita broke apart and on top of that it was burnt and let alone my wife's Frita was burnt too!... More

Went with a classic and in no time at all we were headed to the beach with what turned out to be very yummy sandwiches. Dinner menu looked terrific. Wish we were her longer. I would definitely go back. PS. There's a 7-11 close by if you also want drinks and chips.

We were really looking forward to a good Cuban sandwich. This is not the place for it. We were starving and even so I did not finish my sandwich. Waiter did not check once to see if we needed a refill of our tea. There were no napkins on the tables and when we asked the waiter for napkins he... More

Great Cuban sandwiches but very "normal". Not bad, but not spectacular. A little pricey but not bad every now and then. Try the Media Noche

I have to say the Cuban sandwich that was ordered tasted average but I paid a high price. Not going back there.

I think the people going to that restaurant don't know how to eat. The food was bad, the rice was old, hard and dried the ox tail was good, the blank bean taste like they came from the can but... the service was good. never again I'm going to that place on less they change the chef.

First let me say that I've gone to Rubio's twice in as many days. Discovered this little cafe in a small strip center on A1A. It only has ten tables, but it is comfortable, clean and charming with touches of Cuba decorating the space. Last night I had the chicken soup which was okey, but no anything special. But the...

We arrived a 1:30 on a Wednesday afternoon hoping we had missed any lunch time rush. The place was full but most patrons were finishing their meals so it looked like a good time to enjoy a little Cuban. We tried to order an appetizer using pork (one of three options) and was told that they were out. Well, stuff... More
