Visiting San Diego for the first time, I had a list of fish taco places I wanted to try. Rubio's is the original, where the craze started...well, it wasn't very good. Not a lot of flavour, and the flavour that was there was just ok.

My son had the kids meal, which was fine, except the churro it came with was probably the worst churro I've ever had - stale and gross. Tasted kind of like moth balls.

Big plus was that Rubio's is fast food, so quicker than some of the better fish taco joints, especially important for people travelling with small children.

I love their burritos. Might even be able to call me addicted. Just tastes fresh every time I order them and service is quick and efficient. I get a side of beans and a drink and you got the perfect meal. I love their salsas, not too spicy but a nice taste. I could eat here every week and the prices are low. Good mexican food, worth a try.

We got fish tacos and nachos at Rubio's twice during our stay in San Diego. The fish tacos were great the nachos were average. If you can go on fish taco Tuesdays and get the tacos for $1.25 each.
