“Dreamin' of Rubio's Shrimp Tacos”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

I was so happy to bite into Rubio's Garlic Herb Shrimp taco - I had 2 shrimp tacos in a corn tortilla with a citrus salsa and avocado slices. It was so tasty, I've been trying to recreate the dish (unsuccessfully at home).

My kids both got burritos, which were enormous. They enjoyed them tremendously.

My husband's Salsa Verde Shrimp were not such a hit - I recommend the GARLIC tacos instead of the salsa verde. You can get the green sauce at the salsa bar - no worries.

Overall, the food was good, fast, and fairly reasonable. We would definitely return.

“Good veggie options”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

Famous for fish tacos - which are great - this place also serves a very good grilled veggie burrito. Excellent salsa bar as well.
