The first impression of the store itself was like ugh, but then again it was a beach theme kinda... More

This place was recommended by a couple of locals, and the reasonably long line outside reassured me that this could be something special. I had not tried tacos before, so did not exactly know what to expect. I had the carne one, and in all honesty it tasty like how cat food smells. I don‘t know if this is what... More

Sadly it is now closed for the season. Two weeks ago we enjoyed the fish tacos and the tofu tacos. Be sure to try the complimentary pickled carrots available just off to the side of the building. The line was long and moved quickly. Casual outdoor eating on a residential street just off the beach. Very casual, I'm talking flip... More

Short drive for tacos @ Rockaway Tacos. Nice, fresh and hot tacos. Don't go too much cause I'll have an overdose of tacos! Go early, cause once they start, holy taco! Have fun and have a fish taco for me.

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
