For the first time in many years, my partner and I were both surprised at Rubio's (Encinitas) last night with fish tacos that were kind of dry, and the sauce seemed 'off' (or maybe just scant) from what we expect.
Then we find out on the internet the company has just been sold to some investment group.
I saw pretty much the same personnel at the restaurant I have seen before. One guy (manager?) having been there for years.
I'm just wondering if we came in on a 'bad night', or if anyone else has noticed things deteriorating there. Not that Rubio's was ever haute cuisine, and really I don't care for much there other than the classic fish tacos and pinto beans. But I really liked those tacos and hope they aren't getting trashed by the new owners.
