Outstanding and Original Food and Service

Generally I am not a big fan of the food truck movement. For the prices charged I would prefer to eat in a dining room and have my food brought to me. When I got to the Taco Bus I was pleasantly surprised to find out they have a dining room with table service, great table service. We were a... read more

My sister in law told me about this place. They are two buses and not one. You place the order in one and will get the food from the other. It is in a weird location but they have parking. There are a few tables and they are picnic tables, so do not plan to stay there for long. The... More

Loved this place!!!! I will go back again if I go back to Tampa. This place was recommended by some locals. It is a place you must go go. Get the smothered chicken burrito. It's to die for. Staff great. Fun place for lunch or late snack.

Ordered the shrimp and fish taco with the watermelon drink. Hubby ordered the beef burrito with the pineapple drink. Everything was fresh and very tasty. We both liked my order better but double order these if your hungry as they aren't that big. Also, try the fresh squeezed watermelon drink!

We checked this out thanks to DDD. The food was ok but not spectacular and the cost was high for what we got. Probably our least favorite DDD we've visited.

Nothing fancy here just good food. I had the quesidilla, my wife had the off beef tacos, my daughter and her husband also enjoyed their meals. The portions weren't large like most places but they made up for it with quality. I went back after my visit to ask if I could get a quart of Guacamole and the manager... More

I am a Tampa resident and have heard - time and again - that Taco Bus is the best and most authentic Mexican food in the area. My daughter and I happened to be in that part of town today and decided to give it a try. Food was overpriced for what we got - chips were stale - queso... More

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
