Steak and Lobster Quesadilla ($11.95) 9inch tortilla with monterey jack and cheddar cheese and mild salsa was of pretty good size. Flavor was domainted by the mean and its sauce. Could not really taste lobster much until we pulled out some. Not a lot of lobster of course. Cheese flavor also overshadowed.
Chicken Burrito ($5.45) Flour tortilla with rice, beans, Cheese & mild salsa was not that large. The chicken was bathed in a gravy sauce, making the insides wet. Not our preferred technique. Lots of beans and spanish rice.
Cerviche Taqueria quickly took our order and got our food and check to us quickly and with a smile, otherwise the service pretty average. Prices are average and quality is average at Cerviche Taqueria. We prefer nearby Pancho Villa ourselves or the Taco Peralta truck. When a place serves burgers and does not offer meat choices like Al Pastor, that should be a sign.
