We wanted some fast Mexican food and found this restaurant from reviews here. We loved our California rice bowls and my daughter got one of their salads. Salsas are fresh and delicious. We plan to go again before we leave the area. Good prices too.

This was our first local meal and it was fantastic. The menu had enough items that everyone was able to get what they wanted (a family of 7 can be hard sometimes). The flavors were amazing and made the food taste great without having to put anything else on it. But they had some great salsas if that is your... More

I've been to a lot of Rubios, but I must say, this may be my favorite one ever. Parking is easy inside of the plaza, the food was well prepared, everything was explained thoroughly, like how big the guacamole is, etc. The kids were able to order their plain chicken tacos with only cheese to order! And the fish taco... More

I guess technically it's fast food, but it's much better than most burger joints. Similar to a Baja Fresh, there are good tacos and burritos. A small salsa bar allows you to customize your meal. Beer and wine available

Great little place with tastfully healthy food. The prices were easy on the pocketbook and the decor was very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to even clean off our plates, which is usually something you do yourself. If you are lucky, you can sit by the fish tank. A well maintained salt tank... More

Went there for lunch. Wow, food was really, really good. Lunch size servings (just right). Will really look for other Rubio's around our area, and be sure to go back to this one.

We usually really like Rubios but this location was really lacking. From the limited seating, to the low quality of the food.... we were very disappointed! We didn't go back and we usually eat at Rubios several times when in San Diego visiting.
