“all breading...where's the fish?”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

oh. please! Advertise fish tacos and give a little bit more than a sample size within the soft corn tortilla! But then there is Tues...fish taco nite. So it is a deal pricewise... Again, you have to buy 2 to get a normal size piece within the tortilla. Give it up ,amigos...

“Fresh and Delicious”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

Rubio's is consistently a great place for fresh and healthy fish taco's, a delicious blend of fresh vegetables and herbs in your choice of a flour or corn tortilla. A selection of sauces from their self serve bar is a nice touch for those who choose to add either mild or hotter sauce to their meal. Always fast and friendly service.

“The best burrito ever!”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

We were travelling back for Santa Barbra to Vegas and were hungry, very hungry. We stopped off not expecting much other than fast food – it would have served its purpose. The staffs were great and we can honestly say it was the nicest chicken burrito ever – full stop!

“Delicious healthy new menu puts them at the top!”
Reviewed 29 November 2012

With the new menu, Mexican fast food featuring fish is finally fantastic! Their fish tacos are wonderfully crispy and perfectly sauced. No problem with food crumbling since the taco is a soft taco and the crispness comes from the batter the fish is fried in. i love their sauce bar because they have so many sauces to choose from and by combining, everyone can get their preferred flavor and hotness.

They are especially good about taking care of special needs, like taking care of gluten free orders. This location is always clean and staffed with friendly people. i love how, even when they are busy, staff likes to bring the food out to customers who are dining in.

Good prices....great food. If You haven't tried Rubio's before, give them a try. This location is always a great place to eat at.....someone knows how to hire really good people for both the kitchen and front of house.

“Rubio's -My favorite Fast Food Fish Taco”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

I first tried Rubio's,, and their fish tacos, while visiting a friend in San Diego. From the first time I was hooked. I think I ate there every day I was in SD. I love the battered fish, white sauce, cabbage, and taco sauce bar. When they opened franchises in Phx I was really happy. Although there are probably fish tacos available made with better quality ingredients, Rubio's never disappoints me. I can always depend on them to quench my appetite for a good fish taco.
