Winner of Best Street Food 2008
, El Rey Del Taco
truck is opening a brick and mortar storefront on Steinway. As reported by a reader on Astorians.com
, Azteca Pride/El Rey Del Taco
will be located across from Popeye's Chicken (near the Pink Mercedes) and will be opening in the next couple of weeks.
Hopefully they won't keep banker's hours like the rest of the Steinway Street merchants. Also, we've been noticing el Rey, himself, has been nowhere to be found on many late nights on 30th Ave. Our hope is that he's been working on getting the store opened and not planning to become a hands-off type of owner when the business picks up like some of the other faceless/tasteless restaurants that make a brief cameo in Astoria.
