Not a place for fish taco's

Pacific Beach Fish House

I know this place has been getting good press but I went there and ordered 2 fish taco's for $10 only to find a piece of fish the size of my index finger.
When I asked what the weight was they said proudly 2 oz.
The flavor was good but 2 ounces????
Go to Oscars on Turquoise in Lajolla and get twice the fish for half the price.

Moma Mia.. Very disapointed :)

I went there based on good reports but for a Italian from the east coast, there food was not close to being authentic.
I had a $13 lasagna which was all noodle and a microscopic amount of cheese.
Tasted like cafeteria food with no flavor.
I don't think the original owners are still there.

My opinion
Thanks Larry

In San Diego Looking for Greek style pizza & oven grinders

In Phila and New Jersey are many pizza places owned by Greeks that use the same recipe.
They are 14 inches and are baked in a oiled pan so the crust frys and a really tasty cheese.
No its not deep dish or like Pizza Huts pan pizza.

As for the oven grinders : they are a open faced sandwich baked in the oven.
Please dont say Quizno's.. no comparison.

I live in San Diego

Thanks in advance
