Really popular place, but the line moves quickly! You can order and eat inside, or take out. Always get the fish tacos which are quite nice - fresh and cooked the way I like them! Quite a variety of other dishes available as well.

I am a fan of Taco Tuesday when you can get a deal on the tacos. I recommend the fish tacos. Good fresh tasting fish taco and a clean salsa bar for the trimmings. Rice is also good. I haven't tried anything other than the...More

Being a huge Baja fare fan this menu is almost to die for. Most of the time everything is perfectly cooked and dished up with precision and freshness. Now and then, however, ingredients are assembled out of balance and you get an almost sloppy kitchen...More

I enjoy many of the salads and bowls. The small touches like serving their food on "China like" plastic bowls and delivering the food to the tables is nice. The Menlo Park store remodeled recently and is very comfortable.

The menu has a few special dishes that make this taco place above average, including the Salmon Chimichurri tacos. But the burritos don't measure up to the local competition. All in all, a good and clean place with bright decor.

Good Mexican style fish tacos that are fresh and filling. The food hits the spot and is very tasty. The special for the night was terrific.

The seafood tacos are fine, no longer outstanding. The portion sizes, as taco fillings, reduced noticeably a couple of years ago. I think they count each morsel now. Sides of rice and/or beans are available, unfortunately the rice is always room temp. It's fine for...More

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.
