Love the Burrito Prenado

It's packed with deliciousness, much better than their standard burrito.And very reasonably priced. Great quick lunch or dinner.

I went with three family members for dinner on Friday night. I had the butternut squash tostada. I enjoyed it because it was something unusual and different, but felt the squash could have been seasoned more. I got beans and rice with my meal and they were okay. Not great, but not awful. Another person in my party ordered the... More

Came here because of Diner Dives and Drives and it was everything as advertised. The shrimp taco was amazing and bountiful with flavor. The hard and soft shell tacos were great to. This place is great and dwarves the respect they get. We loved it and will be back

If you enjoy a place that is out of the ordinary then you will want to pay them a visit. Good food for lunch but seemed a little pricey overall. Service was good and fast for as busy as it was on my visit.

We followed up on a tip from a nephew who attends USF, and had a great meal after a Yankees baseball game at George Steinbrenner field at the Taco Bus. It's got a real funky ambience and the torta , the burrito , and tostada hit the spot. Most of Tampa is chain restaurants, but this place is a Tampa... More

Stopped in for a late lunch on a Monday. All of us ordered tacos with several different fillings. The pork, chicken and beef were all very good delivering a lot of flavor in a satisfying size. I had the beans and rice. Enjoyed the beans and added a little table side salsa to the rice. We all left satisfied and... More

My wife and I went here for lunch arriving at 1 P.M. Small line up but it moved quickly. I ordered a mixed plate of refried beans, veggies, Mexican rice and marinated beef in Mexican spices. It came with 4-6 inch tortilla shells. The beef was really tasty but not too spicy. The only complaint I have is that the... More
