Rockaway Taco has yet to get its beachside coffee truck up and running, but here’s this nearby. The hot-dog truck that was parked behind a chain-link fence at Beach 74th Street and Beach Channel Drive has been purchased by another hot-dog vendor — but the new operator is taking things in a different direction. He’s opened the Waffle Shack, a self-declared “Chicken & Ribs” joint that specializes in (what else?) chicken and waffles. And a smoker perched in front of the truck lets you know this place means business about its ribs. Here’s the menu — the shack is open from 10 a.m. till 11 p.m. on weekdays and till 1 a.m. Friday through Sunday. Delivery is free with a $10 minimum.
