"El Grill" on 30th Ave. in Astoria?

I walked past a taco/torta window today on 30th Ave., just west of 31st St. (across the street from Trade Fair). I believe they are calling themselves "El Grill," but I could be mistaken (walked by rather quickly). Has anyone tried this place? Any recommendations?

    That's El Athens Grill. It's pretty good. Besides the window, there is also a restaurant with tables and a bar inside. I usually get the Huaraches, usually Al Pastor. It's a particularly good value. It's $6 and I have trouble finishing. If you want to sample the various meats typical of taquerias, get the tacos so you can try multiple kinds.

        This place is GREAT. The enchiladas verdes are amazing and I can't wait to sample more of the menu. I've been craving the place since going there last month.
