First stop in Tampa. Didn't even go to the hotel first. Loved my roasted pork taco and tostada. Especially impressed with their refried beans, only because I don't really like them anywhere else. They are so plain in most restaurants. I could stop there every other day! Only one disappointment: They used to have Tongue, Brain, Stomach and other strange... More

The tacos were really delicious! I ordered two and that was more than enough because they were decent sized. Loved the salsa verde!

The food is great, but a little pricey for the small portion that you get. They even make you pay extra for condiments. You would be better off going to Chipotle and getting more for less money.

This place used to be off the chain before it got franchised, now the portions are a lot less and the quality is a little lower, which is a shame because it used to be soooo good!

Granted I come from a small town, so, why i pay $40 for some 3 tacos, a salad, a burrito and a kids meal.... it seems steep. But the taste is awesome.... I have no complaints about any of our food. As a matter of fact it is probably the best pseudo Mexican food I have ever had. I will... More

I also had a a shrimp taco and it was good but nothing can top the burrito. I can't wait to go back and try all the other burritos. My girlfriend had the vegan steak burrito (it sucks... More

Taco Bus is my favorite lunch spot. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I especially like Friday's because their Friday special is the chipotle chicken filling. The downtown Tampa location or the Hillsborough Ave locations are both solid. You'll likely find less of a line and more parking at the Hillsborough spot though. Enjoy!

I kept hearing all these comments about Taco Bus, so I figured I would try it for lunch the other day. I am really not sure what all the hype? I have ate at many Mexican (or similar) restaurants from high end to low and Taco Bus is just average to me. I was with two other people and they... More
