Rubio's - Not Just Fish Tacos

My husband summed it up well when he tried my leftovers, "Oh, it isn't another Cafe Rio."
Last week Rubio's invited a few of us bloggers to try their delicious food. We were stuffed of delicious burritos, tacos, salads, and their variety of salsas. I knew about Rubio's long ago becuase my mom said they are her favorite fish tacos ever. (and she lives in Hawaii! She has had good fish.) But they have such a variety of flavors and dishes. My favorite dish was their roasted vegetable salad. With all this chicken, avocados, and a delicious dressing for 320 calories. I keep tellingi everyone that because I can't believe it. But it had so much flavor you didn't feel like you were eating 2000 calories less than some other fresh mex salads in town. They have other great options for the health conscious eater - grilled fish or chicken tacos, whole wheat tortillas, 4 different salads. They are great to substitue anything for anything if you want. I love that.


Everything I tasted was delicious, fresh, and full of flavor. They were nice enough to donate a free meal to one lucky winner.

Looks like you went to the Orem Rubio's. I was pretty excited when they started returning to Utah. They really do have some of the best fish tacos ever.

I can't wait to try Rubio's. We usually shy away from the chain places. I feel bad I lumped them in with the other places because it sounds like my kind of place.

We love "Rubios". Frequently, you can find us there on Tuesday evenings, when they have their fab fish tacos for $2.50 each.
Love the fresh mex taste of everything.
Thanks for the opportunity to win!

We have had Rubios back home for years and it was one of my all time favorite places to go. Missed it when I moved to Utah two years ago and was thrilled when I saw pop up a few months ago. We go all the time! Love the chicken tacos!
