Village Voice's Description

Rockaway Taco made it safe for certain parts of Brooklyn to come to Queens. And while we have mixed feelings about this -- not to mention the Brooklyn chauvinists who need to be reminded that they're not actually in Brooklyn -- we feel no conflict whatsoever about the virtues of Rockaway Taco's fish taco. It's everything a fish taco should be: The long fingers of fish are lightly battered and deep-fried until they're crunchy, greaseless and sublime; the guacamole is thick, creamy, and plentiful; the crema is tangy and endowed with just enough heat to keep things interesting; and the radishes, cilantro, and red cabbage are crisp, fresh, and a vibrant rejoinder to their unctuous bedfellows. And while the assemblage could use a second layer of tortilla to keep everything together, cleaning up the wreckage is one of the more delectable pursuits to be found on Rockaway Beach. --Rebecca Marx

Tips from foursquare

  • Spend the extra dollar to top your taco with guacamole ($4 in all). And don't miss the cold salad of cucumber, mango and jicama, which is served in a sealed plastic sandwich bag ($2).

    If the line stretches more than 10 feet past the ice cream stand, it's prob not worth the wait. But if you do tough it up, grilled corn is the way to do it.

    Looks like a beach weekend! Don’t miss Rockaway Taco while you’re there. Most popular: fish tacos with guacamole, mango and cucumber salad, and plantain chips. Cool off with the watermelon juice!

    Skip the Carne tacos and get the fish.

  • Village Voice on 11/26/12

    Worth the trip for excellent chilaquiles and tilapia tacos. Critic's pick for bet foodie adventures: Rockaway, Queens.
