Love their shrimp salad with chargrilled corn and mandarin oranges and avocado. Served with real silver and dinner wear in a fast food restaurant. Great value, pleasant service

This was my first meal in San Diego. It's fast food, but doesn't taste like it. I had their fish tacos and thoroughly enjoyed them. The fish is clearly fresh and tasted great. If you're looking for affordable seafood, this is a great place to go!

The fresh seafood at this restaurant was really good. The fish tacos were excellent an the burrito was huge and packed with shrimp.

As soon as I land in San Diego, the first place I want to eat at is Rubio's for a great fish taco. The Tacos are still great, the service and cleanliness are both very good. It is the straws that died. When I lived in San Diego, we voted Rubio's as having the very best straws in the restaurant... More

Do you want a good taco? Don't go here! I ordered the grilled Mahi Mahi tacos and they were so fishy smelling I could not eat them. They graciously replaced them with another taco that had 3 small grilled shrimp with crumbled bacon. Again, I could not eat them. So my meal basically consisted of a few corn chips. Needless...

Visited because of my past experience at Rubios restaurants in the past. I enjoyed the Fish Tacos Supreme platter. Two tacos with a side of pinto beans and chips. Tacos were very good and the pinto beans were a pleasant alternative to the typical refried beans. The picante offerings were great. For inexpensive prices but not an inexpensive tasting meal...

So I was drawn to a place that says coastal grill. Glad I was as Rubio's has some of the better chicken tacos I can remember ever having. I liked them enough I'll admit I've been there twice this week! Everything tastes fresh and all the flavored work great together. Both times there I had the 2 taco platter. 2... More

Rubio's is a great option for delicious fast food. It's an excellent value and quality. The fish tacos are great but there are other menu options too; the veggie tacos are yummy too. I love their salsa bar, particularly the chipotle salsa. And they have beer!
