This is the first time I've been to Rubios in a long time. I went here today for "Tuesday Tacos". The fish tacos were large and filling. Service was friendly. I do wish that Rubios had larger containers for you to fill your salsa. Overall, this was an enjoyable place to eat on Tuesday.

Very good "faster food" mexican. A step up from "fast food" with a good selection of items, leaning heavily on shrimp-based dishes. Not very good choices for a vegetarian.

Another good burrito is a shrimp and bacon burrito for $8.50. Very flavorful! -On Tuesdays after 2:30pm, Fish tacos are $1.75 and $2.00 for Fish taco especial (guacamole added). -Salsa bar with 3...

Rubio's is a small Mexican restaurant with great tacos and a home style feel. You order upfront and find yourself a place to sit. Food and drinks come out pretty quick and people clean up after themselves. Food was very tasty and each meal comes with a side of chips and beans. Salsa and various sauces are available on a...

We come here every time we go to Palm Springs. The food is fresh and yummy. We get the chicken tacos or the fish tacos and both are awesome. This place is similar to Baja Fresh but much better. Great prices. Efficient staff.

I go to Rubio's often. I LOVE their food. I'd describe it as "Fresh-Mex". It's Mexican food, elevated. Always fresh. Many many many healthy choices. Not your usual Mexican food. Even the chicken burrito is elevated. It's fast, cheap (for the quality), fresh, delish!

I have eaten here many times and am always amazed that it is a chain restaurant. The food is very fresh and has just the right amount of spice. They are not stingy with the shrimp or anything else. The prices are great and the staff is always in good spirits.
