Great Fish Tacos

This has got to be the best fast food chain ever. Tried the Mango Mahi Mani tacos today and they were amazing. Fresh and tasty! Good service, great food st a great price. If you haven't tried Rubios yet, it's time.

I love Rubios and their fish tacos. I only wish we had these on the east coast. Whenever I go out to San Diego, I always find a Rubios. Would strongly recommend it if you want a quick, quality, healthy meal.

We each ordered the fish taco trio at the fashion valley mall location. All three were crazy good, definitely something I would order again if I were at a Rubio's. The original fish taco was very tasty and I can see why it is popular on their menu. The blackened tilapia was very spicy, but the flavour still was good.... More

Local favorite spot for a quick, easy, and delicious lunch. The fish tacos are really nice and fresh and the salsa bar allows for any pallet to be pleased. Simple. Fresh. Easy.

After eating Mexican almost all the way down the coast of California, I dreaded more Mexican food. But my husband really wanted it one last time before we came back to the South. I had seen Rubio's near where we were staying so we ate there. I am so glad we did! I've never had fish tacos as good as... More

Been going here since I was little and will continue to go here. I wish they would open one on the east coast though! Their fish tacos are the best I have ever had. No will ever compare to these!!! They give you beans and chips with your choice of salsa too. The food is fresh and healthy and worth... More

It is a very good place to eat tacos mainly in California. They use to serve you in plastic dishes and you had to use plastic silverware, like a typical fast food place. A short time ago they were bought by an american food chain ($80 million), and they have been able to keep their quality and to add several... More
