Salsa and guacamole are made fresh daily. The Mahi Mahi is wonderful grilled or blackened. Service is superb. We will continue looking for Rubio's wherever we travel.

Something fresh and tasty to please anyone, even those on a diet or with food restrictions. Great salads, tacos etc and great salsa to go with it. Fast, friendly service...

Rubios is a great place for fast, fresh food. They will accommodate pretty much any request and are delighted to serve you. The food is consistently good with healthy offerings and friendly staff hoping to please their customers. I eat heart-healthy so they can omit a sauce, or cheese and the result is tasty food that I can eat with... More

I love Rubio's. Never disappointed in the food or service. I ordered and ate on their patio which faced a nice fountain. I am on their email list and received a free birthday meal, so I got the coastal trio which is delicious! Always a great, consistent experience so I will be back.

Good place to stop over on the drive from LA to Santa Maria for a light dinner. The salad choices are very good and are plentiful but not wasteful. Service is relatively fast and the ingredients are very fresh.

Which is not a good thing. The beef was very gamey... inedible... To tell the truth, it did not taste like beef... I had the deluxe chicken taco... and the deluxe beef taco... If not for the salsa (which was excellent) I could not have eaten any of it. Won't be going back!!!

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.
