al pastor tacos on roosevelt ave

quickly drove past a place today that looked awesome. Was wondering if anyone had tried it.

Near the corner of National and Roosevelt in quens, there was a small taco joint, and just outside, almost on the sidewalk, the guy had a huge spit of what must have been al pastor going. I'm so totally addicted to spit-roasted al pastor and haven't had a fix in ages.

Does anyone know what place this is? Have you tried it? Is it as good as it looks?

Also, just south of that on national was another tacqueria looking place... small store, with a sidewalk window stand. It had a cool mosaic-kind of motif on the outside wall. Looked like stacks of tortillas in the window. Any insight on that place?

Sorry for all the vague references here. I'm heading back there in a couple weeks for a full exploration of that block, but in the meantime, would love anyone's insight on the places (or other great spit-roasted al pastor places nearby). Not sure if Eric Eto or someone else knows these places...
