Lack luster Chaney Brothers style food, in a dirt lot. The Hillsborough Ave location has easy access to rt. 75 & the Hood. Chips always stale with FL humidity, salsa of canned tomatoes with a roman salary of salt. Absent are fresh cilantro or pickled jalapenos, so don't ask. I've eaten at this location once with out prodding and several... More

First off, I had been waiting literally 3 1/2 - 4 years to eat a Burrito from Taco Bus...ever since I saw them featured on a Travel Channel show, (I think it may have been "Mexican Food Paradise"). I can honestly say I love their Carne Asada Burrito, so much that I ate one there, ordered another one to go... More

its a bus alright and more than one! Cool experience, very friendly bunch that serve up some great tacos. You need to try the watermelon flavored water - nicely refreshing in the Tampa heat. The fish taco is tres bien! We have been here a couple of times now and can't wait to see them again.

We loved Taco Bus during our visit to Tampa! We went several times and ordered a variety of things off the menu, all of them absolutely delicious! I enjoyed a lot the shrimp & chicken chipotle - delicious big chunks of chicken, but also was very impressed by their long list of gluten free and vegan options on the menu.... More

Cool little taco joint famous in Tampa. I thoroughly enjoyed the carnitas taco, and the chips and guacamole was also tasty. Check it out!

This place is awesome. I want one in my hometown. Best item of our visit was the Burrito Prenado with the fish (pescado) and the pick and cabbage. Amazing. Super fresh. I will be back again and again. And it's pretty much open all the time. Literally!!

I had the fish and beef tacos, and both were absolutely amazing! The salsa had a hint of smoke in it that was very unique, so I brought home two bottles of it. The only disadvantage was the somewhat confused staff. We waited quite a bit for everyone in my party to get their food and had to make corrections... More
