I finally made it to Rockaway Taco. When you first see the line it makes you want to turn around. However, believe it or not the line moved within a considerate amount of time. I had a fish Tacos they were very tasty. The ingredients are fresh. The Tacos are not to rave about. But if you are in the... More

I'm not saying it isn't good. Sure, it's good. If you don't have to wait in a long line (go on a weekday). But the food has become decidedly average. I mean, I enjoyed the spicy jicama, and both fish-eaters and vegetarians can be reasonably happy here, But it certainly isn't worth waiting on line for an hour for these... More

If you are looking for the best fish tacos in New York, look no further than Rockaway Taco. The thin masa taco is filled with just the right amount of perfectly fried fish and complemented by the crunch of the vegetables that include shredded red cabbage and sliced radish. We ordered the deluxe, which added guacamole. Their guac, by the... More

Good tacos, great jicama salad, but not worth a long line. Go in the off hours and you'll be much happier!

This is the worst example of a Surf Taco stand imaginable. Just passable very over-priced finger food.No service but abundant reminders to tip and massive prominent tip jar. Non-personal/ I am doing you a favor order takers who keep change. Basically a "Hole in the wall" -that is literal. Throw away benches serve as tables, paper hotdog holders serve as... More

There's really nothing to add to what others already written: This is by far the best fish tacos I ever had and it's up there along the best (street food) meals I've had. To give an perspective on exactly *how* good they are I can tell you that when coming here for the tacos, I forgot both the map and... More

Hands down best fish taco I ever had! I would drive out there just to have it again!! It's a real small place, but the food packs a punch. If you're in the area you must try.
