This place should be closed because of the poor quality of food. They have a separate GF menu but as others have pointed out the safety aspect is not very clear. I had the cilantro lime bowl with chicken. I had stomach ache most of the night. I would say avoid this place. Not sure about other Rubios but the “fresh mahi mahi” tacos that my wife got were anything but fresh.

Rubies cannot be trusted! Every time I’ve eaten at any Rubios, I’ve been glutened.

Terrible! Stay away! No awareness about what ingredients are in their food and said it's possible that all dishes have not gluten bc of cross contamination. Terrible!!

I ate the rice here, which other reviews say is contaminated, and felt fine until 26 hours later (celiac). Unclear if I got sick from this or something else.

Their tacos are made on corn tortillas and are extremely delicious. BUT I don’t think their chips are!!! I got very sick after eating here of lunch one day so be careful!

Other than that the tacos are absolutely delicious and would eat here again.

Eat there every couple weeks I usually get the shrimp trio and swap out the flour tortilla I generally have good luck maybe one out of 10 times something will not settle with me but it's probably just from the griddle not getting the cleaning requested

We came in and asked if they use a shared fryer for their chips and fries with anything wheat and they said it is shared. We then asked for the gf menu which most have and they couldn’t find it. The shift lead was then telling us everything is cooked with wheat like the chicken and even the rice saying the rice goes in the fryer too which doesn’t even make sense. They just wanted us to leave and wanted no liability. So we had to leave. Don’t waste your time.
