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.

These tacos are worth waiting on the weekend cue. The ingredients are super fresh, the staff is friendly and the tacos are very much authentic. Muy bien!

I'm sure everyone has heard by now about the amazing fish tacos at this hole-in-the-wall stand at Rockaway beach. Yes, the tacos make my mouth water with their crunchy fried outer layer, tangy sauce and fantastic smoky spices. The other tacos are also worth a try - the tofu one in particular. However, waiting for 20 minutes in line and... More

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. If you eat fish or meat, you will love it even more. As a vegetarian, I always get the grilled tofu tacos. It's an extra $2 to make it deluxe (with guac) but definitely worth it! There is a smaller version of RT in the food court right on the beach but they don't sell... More

I went to Rockaway Beach for July 4th and my friend said we had to go to Rockaway Taco while we were there. It was so good! It was a few blocks from the beach. (Only did we realize afterward that there's a location on the boardwalk nearby our beach spot at around 98th street.) We waited in line for... More
