Where is this truck located in Astoria? Is it still around? Can anyone else recommend other taco trucks in Queens? Thanks.

    El Rey del Taco is definitely still around. I often see it driving up and down 30th ave, usually in the vicinity of the 30th ave N stop. I have no idea of hours or any way of predicting where the truck may be at any moment.

      It is there almost every night usually by 8pm (sometimes earlier). It is between 33rd and 34th sts on 30th Ave.

            I agree. The first time I went, it seemed pretty good. Subsquent visits have all been disappointing so I've written it off. The taco truck on Queens Blvd around 40th st is much better, but not at all convenient to Astoria.

                Agreed! The Taco truck is great. I have had the spicy pork burrito and the chicken quesadilla, and they were both excellent.

                  The taco truck, while certainly not being the best Mexican joint around, is great for what it is -- a cheap, fast, friendly place to get a bite on the way home from work or, even better, on the way home from a night out in the city. I see them out on 30th Ave into the wee hours all the time, often well past 3am. The huaraches are quite good in my opinion. Excellent drunk food.

                    Yes -- you wouldn't necessarily pick it over other Astoria Mexican if you were planning to go out for dinner, but for the "gringo borracho" needs it's just fine.

                      Hi- It's usually around 33rd/34th st and 30th ave-- after work about 6pm and stays there until the wee hours of the morning. http://local718.wordpress.com/2008/01...
