Consistently ranked as one of the top fast casual chains in the nation, Rubio’s Coastal Grill is set to open its newest location in Clovis on Dec. 8. The new restaurant will be the second in the area, joining the popular Rubio’s in Fresno’s RiverPark. Look for it in the space that used to be occupied by Hunan at Clovis and Herndon avenues.
Since co-Founder Ralph Rubio opened his first restaurant in San Diego in 1983, Rubio’s Coastal Grill has been credited for starting the fish taco phenomenon in America. Cited by The Washington Post and Los Angeles Times as the country’s top fish taco expert, Rubio’s has sold more than 200 million Original Fish Tacos.
“Since opening the first Rubio’s restaurant in San Diego more than 30 years ago, our reputation for delicious coastal cuisine has spread across the nation, and our following of loyal fans has continued to grow,” said Rubio. “We are incredibly excited to introduce our chef-crafted menu and coastal ambiance to Clovis.”
Ralph’s culinary passion is evident in the inventive recipes used to make Rubio’s award-winning tacos, burritos, salads and bowls. Grilled-to-order responsibly- sourced seafood, such as shrimp and Wild Alaska Coho Salmon, are offered across the Rubio’s menu, while salads and bowls are topped with sizzling steak, all natural chicken raised without antibiotics or one of several seafood options like Wild Mahi Mahi.
Guacamole featuring creamy Hass avocados is made daily in the kitchen, and fresh produce arrives throughout the week. More information about Rubio’s commitment to food quality can be viewed at https://www.rubios.com/food-philosophy/made-mission.
Rubio’s first opened in 1983 in the San Diego neighborhood of Mission Bay. Today, counting the ocean as a source of inspiration, Rubio’s uses responsibly-sourced seafood in nearly all of its seafood dishes, and continues to expand its menu with innovative recipes ranging from seafood tacos and burritos to California Bowls and crisp, fresh salads.
In addition, Rubio’s offers all natural grilled marinated chicken and steak, “no fried” pinto beans, handmade guacamole, a variety of proprietary salsas, and craft beer, wine and sangria beverage options. The award-winning restaurant regularly receives accolades for its famous Original Fish Taco.
Rubio’s participates in a variety of community partnership efforts throughout the year including being a member of the Blue Business Council and hosting Rubio’s annual CoastFest celebration and beach cleanup. Rubio’s is headquartered in Carlsbad, Calif., has over 4,000 employees and currently operates nearly 200 restaurants in California, Arizona, Colorado, Utah and Nevada.
