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.

In addition to sustainable seafood, Rubio’s offers chargrilled chicken and steak, fresh made guacamole and salsas and sauces that are prepared daily.

“Fresh food cooked to order”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Who would think that this shopping center Mexican restaurant would be anything special, but the food is very tasty and quickly prepared. No atmosphere, but the food makes up for it. Highly recommended.

“The original and still the best fish tacos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Good choices like Mahi mahi, salmon, and tilapia. Great salsa bar. Friendly and efficient service. Very clean and no lines. Pricy for Mexican in a town filled with Mexican restaurants, but very fresh and tasty and convenient access.Plenty of parking. Quality and worth going back to. Go on Tuesdays for $1.50 fish tacos !

“Rubio's - a fish taco like no other!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Trust me on this - try a fish taco especial and you'll be hooked! For those of us who think beans and rice are just fillers, the Baja Burrito, with avocado, cheese and chicken is perfect! You can even enjoy some beer with your food.
