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.

Rubios is great and a flavor you can't get anywhere else! A must do when you are in the San Diego area. Fish tacos of course are the staple, but everything is great. Add a Stone Ale and you have a true local's meal!

Best Fish Tacos, Awesome Beer battered fish burritos, and yummy lobster salad with the white chipotle sauce. So good!

If you are looking for a good fish taco, this is your place. The rest of their menu is great, too, but they have a great fish taco sauce that makes it my favorite chain in So. Cal.

I have only tried the burrito. The burrito has variety inside it and is filling. The ingredients, chips, salsa are fresh.

Interesting take on Ensenada style fish tacos. I like a little less cabbage and more lime on the tacos when i get mine.
