About
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.

This is the best place for Taco Tuesday after 2:30pm until closing. It is only $1.75 for fish taco's. My wife still orders the chopped chicken salad with chipotle dressing. I love the mango ice tea also.
