Fish Taco Tuesday at Rubio's
Com[any Web Site ^ | 09/01/2009 | Rubios

Posted on 09/01/2009 4:29:58 PM PDT by muawiyah

World Famous Fish Taco Rubio's originl Baja-style Fish Taco since 1983. Crispy beer-battered fish, shredded cabbage, mild salsa...... slice of lime.


TOPICS: Agriculture; Chit/Chat; Food; Local News
KEYWORDS: fishtacotuesday
All you San Diego County guys or those who visit there frequently, this is Fish Taco Tuesday. The Spouse informs me it starts at 2:30 every day, not 4:00 as it used to, and it's not $1.00 (we knew that), but $1.25.

Most of these stores are located in the Republican Belt which stretches from the Karlsbad shoreline and the pier at Oceanside all the way to Arizona. It's about 10 miles wide, and Richard Nixon is still a name that commands respect.

Good Republicans everywhere look forward to visiting Rubio's ~ so next time you're out there plotting and planning, or helping out the old folks, or maybe surfing (there are sharks around here so be careful), be sure to Remember Tuesdays and chow down on a fabulous bit of nostalgia. This is California BEFORE the arrival of all the tourists.

It’s spelled Carlsbad, not Karlsbad, and the original stand is near my parent’s house in Pacific Beach.

Just reading a thread on Karl Rove and it just slipped in. I know better.

You were blessed as a child!

Rubio’s and Wahoo’s Fish Tacos are one of the (very) few things I miss about California. Strange that here in New England people think nothing of lobster rolls, but mere mention of the words, “fish taco” either gets you a look of increduility or a the giggle of a deviant and immature mind.

I think this one might be salmon, but it's close enough.

They dropped the salmon taco again so now folks with gluten intolerance will have to stick to the shrimp tacos ~ which are excellent.

The picture shows a battered hunk of white fish of some kind ~ so "THAT'S THE ONE" that's $1.25 tonight ~ and you just have a few more hours to go.

The url of the photo I posted said "salmon," but it looks like their fish taco, so I thought it was good enough for posting purposes.

I'm not at home or I would be heading to Rubio's. Thanks for making me HUNGRY! :)

I have made fish tacos several times in the last month as a fishing trip to Canada blessed me with a bounty of wonderful rock fish and ling cod. I am going to visit family over Labor Day in NH tomorrow, and am going to make sure to eat lobster and fried clams at least once. Maybe I will make a lobster taco? Actually fresh haddock would make great fish tacos.

I always like a carne asada burritos there. They were real close to my Pacific Beach apartment when I was in Submarine Sonar School.

Actually, Rubios had lobster on their menu at one time. And while lobster rolls SOUND good, and are pretty tasty, they’re pretty simple, too.

I’m going against the grain on this thread, I know....but Rubio’s “fish tacos” really suck; mushy and too gooey for my tastes.

PB—Sonar school at NTC, and probably a boat out of Point Loma, and you didn’t live at Santana’s? Heretic!!!

What you have to do is EAT THEM AT THE STORE. Taking them home is not “the way”.

Yep, I know they did, but I prefer my lobster steamed or just the tails broiled. Am I correct to visualize a lobster roll similar to a burrito or more like a rolled taco? Heck, I’ll do a search myself. :)

I live off base during C school. I was there two years. Sonar School is a small base beside NTC. All the sub stuff is moved to Groton now. I left there and spent 4 years on pier 22 Norfolk, VA. Point Loma is for west coast. I was east coast.

that brings back some memories, and the new STS’s will never experience that. They moved Sub Sonar school back to Groton in 95!

we’re dinosaurs my friend *L*

A lobster roll is lobster dressed with mayo and placed in a New England style hotdog bun that has been toasted in butter. Some places dress the lobster in hot butter. Droooool!

I fixed the power supply for the FTs on ours. They didn’t know what a zener diode was. They worked on it three days until they asked for help. It took me 10 minutes.

When my oldest son drops in, we hit the park early for a fish taco dinner. Then, dogs at the 7th inning stretch.

Good times, even though the Padres stink.

With some of their best players out with injuries for months
didn’t help. It is given a chance for some of the younger players to get a shake out.
Chargers looooking good.

Well, friend, if you are ever down east, around Kennebunkport, ME, make sure you stop at the Clam Shack. Best lobster rolls and fried clams EVER...in the history of western civilization.

I'm jes' sayin'...
