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.

Great service! People there are attentive and very nice.
Food is a good deal for the reasonable pricing.
Even though the menu published the 'plate' deal with double entree, one can order a single entree 'plate'. The 'plate' comes with 2 sides.
Only thing I hope they'll have someday soon, is to offer cooked veggies for a side in addition to the chips, rice, and beans.

A casual Mexican Fish Taco place.... the salsa bar is OK with peppers, limes, lemons, 3 or 4 salsas but no container with just cilantro (which I prefer).... I usually do not eat onions.
We have been here several times over the past few months.
The HealthMex Grilled Ono Burrito is served with chips and is very good.
I have had the Chili-Lime Wild Salmon Burrito which was also tasty.
The Fish Tacos that we have had are consistently good.
There are also Chicken & Steak Tacos and Burritos plus Salads on the menu but we have not tried them yet.
Note: $1.50 Taco Tuesdays after 2:30pm!
We plan on returning.....
