Rubio’s® Goes Tropical with New Sustainable Shrimp Offerings

 Our friends at Rubio's have done it again!

In June we learned all about Rubio's sustainable seafood practices.  Now there are even MORE delicious options as Rubio's has added two new menu items to their palate-pleasing arsenal: Tropical Shrimp Tacos and Burritos!

As if we needed more reasons to love Rubio's, right?

These new menu items are inspired by the flavors of the Yucatan region of Mexico and represent Rubio’s dedication to being a friend of the ocean and serving sustainable seafood whenever possible.

Both chef-crafted dishes, created by the Rubio’s culinary team, are served in warm flour tortillas and feature sustainable shrimp that’s been marinated in a blend of ancho chiles, herbs, garlic, and olive oil. Both dishes are topped with pickled onions, a fruity mango-habanero salsa and a salsa that highlights flavors from the Yucatan such as achiote, garlic, cumin, orange juice and lime. The Tropical Shrimp Two Taco plate is served with tortilla chips and “no-fried” pinto beans, while the burrito comes complete with handmade guacamole, Mexican rice, black beans and crisp romaine lettuce.

“As part of our culinary progression, we continue to incorporate globally inspired ingredients with the fresh flavors of Southern California,” said Ralph Rubio, co-founder of Rubio’s. “These unique flavor combinations, paired with our continually growing sustainable seafood offerings provide Rubio’s guests with delicious coastal dishes.”
Rubio’s passion for creating delicious coastal cuisine began when the first Rubio’s opened in 1983. To date, Rubio’s has sold more than 190 million Original Fish Tacos® and uses sustainable seafood in nearly all of its seafood menu items. The brand continues to expand its menu with innovative recipes, ranging from sustainable shrimp to Atlantic salmon. In addition to serving certified sustainable seafood, Rubio’s also offers grilled marinated chicken and steak, no-fried pinto beans, salads, handmade guacamole, and a variety of proprietary salsas – all prepared in Rubio’s kitchens.

Guests are invited to visit Rubio’s today to try the new Tropical Shrimp burrito and taco offerings. Stay up-to-date on events and celebrations by visiting Rubio’s website: Guests can also join the conversation on Facebook at and Twitter at
