Rubio’s dedication to seafood began when the first Rubio’s opened in 1983. Since then, Rubio’s has sold more than 170 million Original Fish Tacos and uses sustainably sourced seafood in nearly all of its seafood menu items. The brand continues to expand its menu with innovative recipes, ranging from sustainable shrimp and Atlantic salmon to seasonal Langostino lobster and wild Alaska Pollock. In addition to serving certified sustainable seafood, Rubio’s also offers grilled marinated chicken and steak, “no fried” pinto beans, salads, handmade guacamole, and a variety of salsas.
