Popular Long Island Food Truck Serves Up More Than Just Tasty Tacos

If you love a good taco and happen to be visiting the outlets in Suffolk County, then check out a food truck that foodies say is worth the trip.

Cochinita Porky, usually at 1066 Long Island Ave., in Deer Park, is known for its unusual tacos and empanadas, with everything made fresh, using locally-sourced ingredients.

From what locals and Yelpers say, the business is owned by two sisters who rent space in a body shop lot. And the prices are great too with four tacos and a can of soda costing just $10.

Local Doug Gannon said he enjoys the Birria tacos and empanadas "as fresh as can be," and the place is a "must try."

Yelpers agree with a newbie from NYC saying: " I saw the reviews and immediately had to see for myself. I've tried the BBQ pork, Al pastor, beef, and chicken taco. I would definitely say Al pastor and chicken are my favorite tacos of theirs."

A local said they finally got to try the food in the "big pink truck and were happy with the outcome: "Everything is made fresh when you order and it shows. Excellent beef empanada. Also, outstanding was the chicken quesadilla. I also had the shrimp taco. My favorite was the empanada and the chicken quesadilla."

Another Yelper, who is also a local, said they pass the truck every day and finally stopped: "Nothing short of amazing, each taco was a different flavor explosion. From a different world compared to the other. 

"My favorite was the al pastor with pineapple, pineapple bursting with a sweet flavor combining with the wonderfully seasoned al pastor. The red and green sauces provided with the tacos are UNBELIEVABLE like woooooooow, i need a bucket of both in my house."

The most commented topic on Yelp was how each item is made to order and nothing is sitting under a heat lamp. Oh, how nice the "sisters" are.
