Whenever I'm in California or Nevada I stop at a Rubio's. I wish there were Rubio's in Texas. Anyway... always pretty good. Not as good as they once were years ago when they first came out. Quality could be better. But the pinto beans are the best ever. White sauce in a fish burrito oh my.

Good fresh food- excellent burritos and chips----a nice alternative to what has become a VERY noisy Chipotle across the street.... The Chipsters decided that they would do what a lot of places seem to do these days...play overly loud music while you eat...you have to raise your voice to converse at the Mission Viejo Chipotle---I would rather be able to...

The food is good. The employees are friendly. If you are looking for something simple and cheap near home, go to Rubio's. The Mahi is great either way.

This is a restaurant that my family enjoys going to about twice a month. The fish tacos are always good and their experiments like Shrimp/Bacon Burritos are great. Give it a try.
