Home to the original Fish Tacos celebrates 40th anniversary
Ralph Rubio tasted his first fish taco as a college student during spring break in San Felipe. He brought the recipe home, opening the first Rubio’s in Mission Bay in 1983. Fish Tacos were 99¢ back then, and will be again on January 25.
On January 25, Rubio’s Rewards members can participate in a contest, both in-store and online, to win ’80s-inspired gear and free Rubio’s. Fifty winners will receive limited-edition Rubio’s bomber jackets, and other prizes. Rewards members earn entries for every visit January 23 – 29.
270 million fish tacos sold!
Rubio’ Coastal Grill has become the #1 fish taco brand, credited with starting the fish taco phenomenon in the U.S. In celebration of the 40th anniversary, Rubio’s “remixed” The Original Fish Taco, offering a new version of the original favorite. The Baja Grilled Fish Taco features grilled mahi mahi and a special Baja sauce.
“When Rubio’s opened 40 years ago, putting fish in a taco was pretty revolutionary,” said Rubio’s Co-Founder Ralph Rubio. “Today, The Original Fish Taco is still our most popular, award-winning item, and we’ve sold over 270 million of them. We’re going strong and look forward to 40 more years.”
The award-winning restaurant regularly receives accolades for its famous Original Fish Taco®. Rubio’s is headquartered in Carlsbad, has over 3,000 employees, and currently operates nearly 160 restaurants.
See you there, San Diego!
