Pleasantly Surprised

I was in Tampa with some friends and they had mentioned the Taco Bus because they saw it on the Food Network. I wasn't sure what to expect. The food was fantastic! So fresh and tasty! I cant wait to go back!

What a fantastic surprise of a place. Came here with my Colombian friend. First time trying the vegetarian torta the horchata drink - both tasted great! Portions seem to be good based on how big the tortas were. I would definitely come back!

I visited with some friends, and was pleased to see such a large vegetarian menu. I tried the vegan steak strip burrito, and it was love at first bite! I have gone back many a time, and it is never a vacation unless I stop in. I wish I lived back in FL, so I could enjoy it more. I... More

Stopped by on a rainy night and had a real simple, nice meal of picadilla with rice and retried beans. Some nice deep textures to the flavors!

And you don't want to miss it. It's not in the best part of town and it's tucked away behind an auto parts store so if you're not sure where you're going, you will probably drive past the first time. That being said, it is soooo worth it. Open 24 hours, and there is always a line, usually of people... More

The menu allow you to order specifically what you wanted. Pick the style (taco, tostada, etc.), add protein (steak, chicken, vegetarian, etc.), choose topping. Make a combo or not. Add chips salsa or other unique dips. Eat in or take out.

Where to start. 24 hour deliciousness. My favorites are the Conchinita Pibil, the Pollo Verde in a quesadilla, and also the butternut squash tostada. But ive never had anything bad there. Cant go wrong.
