We spent some time trying to find this taco place. It looked very popular and busy. However, probably was aimed at young people and not great for a family. There was an enormous queue for the tacos so we left.

In the summer of 2014, this "outfit" moved to Beach 87th Street between Beach Channel Drive and Rockaway Freeway (closer to the Freeway). More room to sit and enjoy (and wait for) the food. Fish tacos are the best anywhere and chorizo tacos (I'm told) are great too, both at $3.50....Drinks- juices are creative (lemon mint, watermelon, etc) but not... More

I went here for lunch with my Mexican girlfriend and she can attest to how delicious the tacos are! They're traditional fish tacos for the most part, which is refreshing! They're not huge, so you'll need to order at least 2 but the prices are VERY reasonable for NYC. They also serve quesadillas, fresh juice and coconut milk right from... More

Service was decent and food was fresh after the beach. Liked the vibe and the surfer lockers. I could see how it would get very busy on the weekend. Nice to sit in the back with the fresh vegetables growing.

While the tacos are good, they aren't 5 bucks good. To an extent you are paying for the novelty of eating a Rockaway Taco while in Rockaway. The guac is the best thing on the menu.

So this is one of my favorite places to visit in the summer...... They have the best fish taco I've ever had and the Guacomole and chips are amazing on an occasion they have fresh coconut water served out of the coconut....... Not into that?! They have watermelon, and pineapple juice......the juices have very little sugar..you have my recommendation!

Not sure why they get such long lines for average overpriced tacos...They were decent tacos but nothing to write home about.
