National Burrito Day

Rubio’s dedication to seafood cuisine began when Ralph Rubio and his father, Ray, opened the first Rubio’s in 1983 and started the fish taco phenomenon that spread across the nation. The time Ralph Rubio spent developing the fish taco recipe became the basis for everything Rubio’s stands for today: interesting and complex flavors in chef-crafted recipes using fresh ingredients.

I recently interviewed Ralph about their social media strategy and he emphasized the brand’s commitment to educating fans about their fresh seafood initiatives.

Since the first store opened, Rubio’s has sold more than 170 million Original Fish Tacos®Today, Rubio’s menu, which serves 85 percent sustainable seafood, has grown from The Original Fish Taco® to include additional  recipes inspired by the sea that feature sustainable shrimp, Atlantic salmon, Regal Springs® tilapia and mahi mahi. In addition to certified sustainable seafood, Rubio’s offers grilled marinated chicken and steak, salads, handmade guacamole, “no fried” pinto beanssm and a variety of salsas that are prepared daily.
