I have been going to this Rubio's for years and have never had a bad experience . It's always spotlessly clean, the staff is courteous , and they always get my orders correct. The food tastes very fresh, and there are lots of healthy options on the menu.

I absolutely love the fish tacos at this place. They do not skimp on quality or portions (even when it is Taco Tuesday). The tortillas are so soft and taste incredibly homemade. $1.75 Fish Taco every Tuesday? If I lived here, I'd come every week. Also ordered some beans and chips as sides and it hit the spot! Love the... More

In the land of "happy hours" this restaurant has continued to attract quite a crowd despite the competition. We meet here at least twice a month with friends to enjoy their original fish tacos. Actually as the years have gone by, the size of the fish has increased! The staff is always welcoming (Norma always greets us and we do... More

I usually come here for their delicious well served Steak Nachos with my daughters. The serving size is good for an adult and two kids.

This is one of our favorite places to have lunch. Rubio's fish tacos are among the very best -- tasty and low calorie. We usually order the meal combo, which includes two tacos beans, chips and a drink, however all of their offerings are tasty and delicious.

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.
