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.

I stopped in here for lunch on a Saturday based on the "near me now" map and the one good review. It's one of those not-fast-food but not-a-sit-down restaurant places. You order at the counter and they give you a buzzer (!). The place is very pleasant, nice decor, and has outdoor seating. The helpful shift manager recommended a mix of fish and meat tacos, I chose blackened tilapia and carnitas on corn tortillas with black beans and chips. Excellent! Fresh! There is a variety of fresh salsas available as well. With a soda, well worth the $10. I paid a little extra for the blackening and carnitas. I highly recommend Rubio's.

Rubio's is great for the reasonably priced, very good food, and the Salsa bar is a winner. One of the few restaurants I feel good about what is left in my pockets both front and back. Only suggestion is that they open a store near Signal Butte and Baseline.
