Good parking, good service, amazing food. I like their salsas and beverage selection. The prices are a but high to take the family often but Taco Tuesday makes it affordable :)

I'm a regular Rubio's patronizer, especially on Taco Tuesdays, when those are almost half price. Otherwise, I order the fish burrito or wild salmon burrito. Service usually is fairly fast. I wish they also had a drive-thru.

Rubio's is a staple in San Diego, having been started here many years ago! The Fish Taco is delicious and, since I have to be careful with the occasional sensitivity to fish, I have eaten it with relish! ;)

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.
