Description: The first restaurant was opened in 1983 in San Diego by Ralph Rubio and his father, Ray, who started the fish taco phenomenon that spread across the nation. Today, Rubio’s menu has grown from The Original Fish Taco® to include additional chef-crafted seafood recipes that feature shrimp, wild salmon and ono. In addition to sustainable seafood, Rubio’s offers chargrilled chicken and steak, fresh made guacamole and salsas and sauces that are prepared daily.

“Yes it's a chain but you can customize your order....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I generally shy away from chain type restaurants because generally if you've been to one, you've been to all. However, Rubio's is a bit different. You can customize your order. I have a 12 year old and believe me, it takes her about 5 minutes to order the chicken tortilla soup and a fish taco. I won't bore you will the details but let's just say, she wants certain things left out of her order and extra things added that are not the usual accompaniments.

Tuesdays are "Taco Night" with $1.50 tacos from 2:00 PM on. Tuesday night is probably not your best bet if you want to avoid a crowd. But if you want the special price it is worth the wait.

This location has both indoor and outdoor seating. It also provides "eat in" or "take out". You can also call your order into the store in advance and it will be waiting for you by time you drive there.

The staff is friendly and helpful with the menu items.

I have used them for catering for several business luncheons when we had "out of town" coworkers visiting and it has been a hit compared to the usual sandwiches or pizza.

Prices are very reasonable too.

Worth checking out.

My wife and I eat here a couple of times per month. The food is always fresh and delicious. The staff know us by names and are always very friendly.

“Excellent Fish Tacos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I'll admit that we were on the hunt for Baja Fresh but luckily for us it was closed because we saw a huge billboard telling us that we had just missed Rubio's. After a quick u-turn we found Rubio's and were able to satisfy our fish taco cravings. I got the Original Fish Taco and the Fish Taco Especial (both on corn tortillas). Both were absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the Avocado Corn Fish Taco platter and the chipotle shrimp taco. He loved his as well. The ingredients were fresh.
