    Fantastic and inexpensive tacos. Great flavor and unbeatable price. Mexican sodas go awesome with a meal.

    Tacos so good and the nachos are epic. Careful with the hot sauce, not for the weak or ulcer prone, it will blow your face off

    Forget all the other tacos, get the chorizo taco. You only need this one but buy 1/2 dozen just for yourself. It's that good!

    Delicious chicken quesadilla - wrap is nice n thin - rich in fresh veggies - just enough spice (not too spicy).

    It's really just the best tacos in the neighborhood. Find them on 33rd and 30th Ave OR 36th and Broadway. Order anything. You really can't go wrong.

    My favorite tacos and tostadas in the Astoria. Very authentic Mexican flavor that is hard to beat.

    Delicious tacos and burritos just off the last stop in Astoria. Heading home late and need a bite? This is what you want to swing by.

    Late night munchies spot for all Astorians! Idk how I feel about the meat and chicken, but the vegetarian tostadas are amazing!

    Legit late night food truck. Nice guys, too. If you're not stopping here to get your nom on after a long night out, you're doing it wrong.

    Do not, I repeat, do not tell these guys that you "like it spicy." they will burn your face off. An awesome spot to hot after a night on the town.

    Late-night drinkers are powerless before the “sincronizada” ($7)— a gooey melted ham-and-cheese between pressed flour tortillas. One of our 25 favorite food trucks! Read more

    What happened to the old, good chef? This new young guy sucks!! Half the time he misses orders and you wait forever or get the wrong thing. Other times there is barely any meat! Favorite spot ruined!

    Here: Lengua is Life. So much that I'll order a single taco on the way home from work at least 3x a week. Get everything on it, even the hot sauce... It's just worth it. Taco truck tacos at its best.

    The tacos were excellent, but the huarache was a bit lackluster. Go with the tacos.
