taco trucks in and around the city

Going to New York for a few days and would like some suggestions for some taco trucks and taquerias. Willing to travel to any length for a good taco. Queens ?, Brooklyn? Manhattan? So give me some ideas because I'm hungry.

  1. There used to be a great one in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, on 5th avenue between 43rd and 44th Street. People lined up at all hours of the night. I'm looking for another truck, but in the meantime there are good tacos elsewhere in the neighborhood. Take a look around on the boards. Try Ricos Tacos.
