update on Rockaway Beach food vendors?

Does anyone have recent information on what Rockaway Beach food vendors have re-opened? The most recent thing I could find were a couple of May 2013 stories, stating that only Rippers and Rockaway Taco were open. (Not the Rockaway Taco stand on the beach, but the one that's a few blocks away.) The lines were reportedly very long for those two places. Have any other places have been able to open since then?

  1. Caracas Arepa bar opened back up at B106 this week and the B96th street concession opened yesterday (7/3).

      1. Tried Rockaway Taco on Saturday. Terrible carne taco. Bland, dry, crumbly texture. Totally flavorless. All the guacamole in the world couldn't save this taco. The chorizo one was pretty tasty but I didn't expect potato? beans? to be smashed into the filling.

        We usually do Rippers, instead, because it's on the beach and has a lot more seating.
