Yes it's a bus! We ate on the outdoor patio and people watching on Central Avenue is always good. Food is yummy - tortas and burritos our favorites. I love that they offer specials that include different types of meats. The prices are reasonable, they accept credit cards, and food is fresh and flavorful. Great casual spot for lunch.

We were so excited to try Taco Bus & very excited to order from the bus but were told to take a seat & a waiter placed our order. First disappointment. When we got our food the burrito had actually chunks of fat instead of meat. Which was so horrible that a restaurant would serve this. When I showed the... More

this was my first time visiting taco bus and it was great. The food was delicious and did not have the fast food taste. Service was fast and friendly. This restaurant is recommended.

Stopped here November 2014. There is actually an indoor seating area behind the bus which we sat in as it was chilly that day. I had thought it would be totally self-serve and found out wrong. Staff actually came out with additional napkins, salsa, etc.... Oh, and did I say that food was great. This is a place you have... More

the Taco bus is a family owned Mexican restaurant. You actually order at a bus and the food is delivered to your table. Food can be eaten outdoors with umbrellas, under shade or indoors. the ambiance is not why you eat here the food is. The ordering is unique, impossible to describe but the end result is wonderful authentic Mexican... More

casual, outside dining, authentic flavors, veggie options. from pork, or chicken to steak or ground beef. good variety, easy to order, they even offer beer if you like that. Inexpensive, line moves fast, and the location is central. I would return to try something new

Only been there once and had 3 different tacos. But the food was solid. Meat had great seasoning and sauces were decent. Would like to go back and try more. Outdoor seating area was cool and ordering from the "truck" was fun. Kid friendly.

My son took me to this restaurant and when I saw the location, I wasn't sure. But, the outside dining atmosphere was great, the food truck kitchen made great Mexican food and we enjoyed the food and experience. I would recommend this as a must do while in the St. Pete/Tampa area.

TheTaco Bus is exactly what it says, a school bus that is parked in a permanent location and has been gutted and now cooks and sells Mexican food. Kinda like the food wagons that come around to construction sites, except in this case you come to the Bus to buy Mexican only. You have to stand in line outside to... More
