4 Reasons to Dine at Rubio’s Coastal Grill

My diet is forever evolving. While gluten-free is always a must since I’m allergic, I’ve had phases of vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian. Right now, you could call me a “Flex-itarian.” I do eat white meat, yet limit my dairy intake and continue to make vegan options the priority. This is one of the reasons I love fast causal dining spots like Rubio’s Coastal Grill. At Rubio’s, you can enjoy such a wide range of healthful options including their seafood plates.

I’ve been eating at Rubio’s since I moved back to LA nearly 10 years ago. Why do I love Rubio’s? Let me count the ways….

Great Tacos

Founded in San Diego over 30 years ago, Rubio’s is known for being at the forefront in the Baja taco popularity that hit California back in the day. As a taco lover myself, it’s easy to see why. While my most favorite is always the salsa Verde shrimp, other taco combos like their mango mahi mahi and wild salmon tacos are also winners. While some of their taco plates default to a flour tortilla, I love that Rubio’s is always willing to substitute to make the order how you need it.

If you haven’t joined their Beach Club, you can get a free taco sent to your email when you do. You’re welcome.

Sustainable Seafood

When the American Heart Association (AHA) published its report that two servings of fish per week could significantly reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, Ralph Rubio, co-founder of Rubio’s, knew his restaurants could help change guests’ lives for the better.

To boost awareness and wellness, Rubio’s is issuing a challenge to encourage eating seafood
twice a week. The company will reward guests with special offers, inviting them to come back
to enjoy seafood a second time within the same week.

“Not everyone likes to prepare fish at home, and we offer a variety of great-tasting, made-to-
order grilled seafood options,” said Rubio. “Our seafood is a natural source of lean protein with omega-3s and essential nutrients. We listen closely to our guests’ feedback and make it a priority to offer healthy menu options, high in both protein and fresh ingredients.”

Research has shown that the anti-inflammatory influence of omega-3s may reduce the risk of
congestive heart failure, coronary heart disease, ischemic stroke and sudden cardiac death, especially when seafood replaces the intake of less healthy foods.
