If you're looking for cheap, quick and nutritional lunch, this is the place. Fish in a taco shell with beans and vegetable is quite tasty. It's quite good. In fact, you can try this place for dinner too. Enjoy!

The Rubio's chain never lets you down. Really good fish tacos in a number of styles. The Shrimp Salad Bowl is excellent and big enough for two. This La Quinta location is particularly well-staffed with pleasant and helpful young people.

The line was out the door for taco Tuesday! We ate the original fish taco that was $1.50 a piece. It was made to order, good but not more hype than anything . I would go back but also open to trying other places.

This has become our go to place for a quick dinner that is very good. Tuesday's is the deal on the original fish taco for a $1.50 apiece. We also like the Mahi Mahi fish bowl. It's run very efficently by the manager Maria and it's always clean and the staff friendly. The beans and chips are also good. We... More
