Best Fish Tacos


Rubio's signature recipe of beer-battered Alaskan pollock, cabbage and sauce, all wrapped in a warm tortilla, comes out on top for the fourth year in a row. The recipe was crafted by Ralph Rubio, according to legend, after he sampled a fish taco in San Felipe, Mexico. He returned to San Diego to introduce his own version, and Rubio's was born. Besides the original fish taco, Rubio's offers the fish taco especial, a sesame-soy fish taco and an avocado-corn fish taco. All of them contain the delicious, flaky fish cooked to a delicious crisp. More good news: Rubio's uses seafood that is certified sustainable or from responsibly managed fisheries.
