Taco truck in Sunnyside

Has anyone tried the tacos from the truck parked on 45th Ave, near Greenpoint? The prices look really cheap $2 each.

  1. I haven't, but the taco truck on 41st Street and Queens Boulevard is great. Cheap too.
    Here's an article about it:

    Did you mean 45th Street?

      I just went to the 41st street truck for the first time, and ordered 2 Carne Asada tacos and 2 Al Pastor burritos. The Pastor were overly fatty for my taste, but had a nice fruity glaze and sauce. The Asada tacos were SUBLIME! Plenty of char, plenty of beef taste, and the two hot sauces on the tacos were spectacular.

        Oooops, I just saw another post about taco trucks. I think it was 46th Street then. Thanks.

          Let us know if you try the one on 46th St. between QB and Greenpoint and/or the one on 46th between Greenpoint and 48th Ave. Thanks.

      2. One of my friends who frequents the latin club on QB raves about this particular truck. I thought they are only there in the evening? Do they have a schedule?
        I'd like to check them out.

          They really don't have a schedule, but you can see them most nights from about 7pm to 3am (give or take). The carnitas (less fatty and sweet than the pastor) and cecina (salted, dried beef) tacos are good too, as are the tortas.

        2. Sounds like some Post Game chow for Thursday night!
          Lets go Mets!!

          1. Around Woodside/Sunnyside/JK, $2 per taco is pretty much a norm, even in sitdown places, AFAIK.

            1. I wrote about the truck on 41st Street and Queens Blvd on another thread. Their tacos are very good, but their tortas are magnificent. You should really try them. They come with your choice of meat, jalapenos, the hot sauces of your choice, lettuce, tomato, cilantro, onions, and fried cheese. They cost $5 but they are extremely filling. IMO, the tacos and tortas from the 41st Street taco truck are much better than the ones from Dalia's taco truck (which parks on 46th street and Greenpoint). The truck doesn't arrive to 41st street until around 8pm, however. They cater to the bars and overnight shift workers. Unfortunately, their schedule is not as regular as I would hope. There have been a few nights when I waited around till 8:30 anticipating their delicious tortas to discover that they are not there.

                I agree with the above. I do wish they'd be a little more regular. However, they're the best thing outside of Las Portales. Inside Las Portales, gimme an al Pastor.

                  I tend to avoid authentic Mexican, Colombian, and so on, because I'm semi-veg and don't want to eat lard. Do you have a sense of what kind of shortening they might use (lard has a pretty distinctive taste)? If it's vegetable, I'd certainly love to try a chicken option.
