Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill is native to San Diego and features the fish taco – an iconic San Diego food item that embraces Mexican heritage with Southern California influence. Rubio’s is one of the fast-casual industry’s leaders in sustainable seafood efforts – just look for the little blue fish icon next to their menu to find the certified sustainable seafood items.
