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.

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

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.
