The Return of Chimichurri Tacos at Rubio's

    Industry News | March 28, 2018

    Rubio’s Restaurants is bringing back its Chimichurri Tacos with added variety and flavor, now available with Wild Alaska Coho Salmon, all natural steak, and all natural chicken. The Coastal Grill chain is also expanding its craveable burrito line with Rubio’s new Chipotle Chicken Ranch Burrito. The new dishes will be available beginning April 4 for a limited time.

    The Chimichurri Tacos feature Rubio’s chimichurri sauce—a savory blend of basil, parsley, garlic, and olive oil—fire-roasted corn, Rubio’s signature white sauce, red chilies, and mixed greens. Served atop flour tortillas, the Chimichurri Two Taco Plate is available with sustainable Wild Alaska Coho Salmon, all natural steak, or all natural chicken. Guests looking for more variety also have the option to mix and match any two.

    Rubio’s new Chipotle Ranch Chicken Burrito is loaded with all natural chicken, fire-roasted corn, Mexican rice, black beans, crispy tortilla strips for a craveable crunch, and creamy chipotle ranch sauce all wrapped in a warm flour tortilla with melted cheese. 

    “Our culinary team creates recipes with global flavors that will resonate with our guests locally,” says Ralph Rubio, cofounder of Rubio’s Coastal Grill. “Inspired by traditional Argentinian flavors and spices, the Chimichurri Two Taco Plate with All Natural Steak and Chipotle Chicken Ranch Burrito feature bold, savory flavors that complement our land-based side of the menu.”

    As part of the company’s Made With a Mission commitment—to serve coastal food that not only tastes great, but that its guests can feel great about eating—Rubio’s is also introducing fresh greens drizzled with lemon agave vinaigrette as a new side option. Guests can now choose between the fresh greens or no-fried pinto beans and sea salted tortilla chips with any two taco plate or burrito.
