Win Digital Media Dinners Pass & $50 to Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill

June 28, 2011 11

Digital Media Dinners is proud to announce Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill as our official food sponsor. Since Digital Media Dinners is San Diego based, we’re always excited to partner with other locally founded businesses. Rubio’s has a story that really speaks to San Diegans.

When Founder Ralph Rubio was in college, he and his buddies would head to the Baja village of San Felipe, where you could camp on the beach for free, catch some rays, and forget about studying. One night, a hungry Ralph spotted a taco shop with an unusual specialty advertised in the window: fish tacos. He ordered one, took a few bites, and was hooked.

Several years later, he opened his first restaurant – a walk-up stand in Mission Bay. Since that day back in 1983, Ralph has sold more than 50 million fish tacos. Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill now has over 180 locations. The Rubio’s menu continues to expand and evolve, with inspiration from Ralph’s continued culinary exploration of Mexico. In addition to the World Famous Fish Taco, Rubio’s also offers a plethora of other signature menu items and they’ll even make your event tasty with Rubio’s a-Go-Go Catering.

  1. Rubio’s is amazing, just this weekend we had them cater a high school graduation party, and the food and service was fantastic. Everyone loved being able to make their own tacos, and we had plenty of chips and guacamole, rice, their superb pinto beans, and tons of salsa. Such a great, easy way to feed everyone, with super-easy clean-up, just recycle the aluminum trays. I looooove Rubio’s!

  3. Rubio’s health mex menu is really fantastic. Also, it looks like Melodie has put together a great group of speakers that would have some great digital marketing insights I would love to hear!
