No flavor at all. Simple chips with no salt or anything. The place is normal. We came after saw it on Guys Program but definitely was a deception.

This is a great place if you want a casual meal that tastes amazing. I had the torta cochinita pibil which was the best I have ever had. My mother had the squash tostada which was unique and VERY good. The sides of rice and beans were so so and could have been skipped. I will definitely be back.

Heard about this place from a TV Show and was curious to try in when in Tampa for work. Went for lunch and between two people we managed to try every style of meat or the vegetarian options. Definitely go with the specials of the day. Had the chicken mole taco and it was fantastic. Some of the best sauce... More

I cannot tell you how many times I've eaten here, but I am yet to be disappointed. The fun concept of putting your order in at a big yellow school bus and then either settling in at one of the few outside tables, or moving inside for a touch of air conditioning, is one to be experienced. Very good Mexican... More

When in Tampa Florida, this is always a must do stop on my list! The food is FANTASTIC, and the atmosphere is Rustic. I love the tree stumps for seats in the hum.. patio area. The food is the main reason to come here. Whatever you order, the fresh ingredients are what you will remember and having you coming back... More

Taco Bus is amazing! I stop here for a burrito every time I'm in Tampa. It's a must. Been here a hundred times and never tried anything else. The burritos are that good! At $6.99 it's a great deal because one burrito is an entire meal. My wife has never finished one. It doesn't get any more authentic than Mexican... More

They have great Mexican food. Not the fanciest atmosphere but really fun. I loved the toppings that they put on their tostadas and tacos. It is a must if you are in Tampa. It got good reviews from "Dinners, Drive-ins and Dives" from the Food Network.

This is a must stop place if you are passing by on 75 or staying in Tampa. Coolest place ever for a 'taco truck'. It's open 24/7. That is crazy! The servers are awesome. You can pick up on the bus or dine inside. They even allow you to BYOB! How crazy is that! I loved their fish tacos and... More

We heard numerous raves How amazing the taco bus was, but we were disappointed. We had the butternush squach tostada, tacos al pastor, pollo asado tacos. The best one we had was chicken. We were surprised that they had sweet tea being that far south, and we were happy about that. But the food was not good. We will not... More

Taco Bus menu is full of fresh options. My favorite is the Pollo Verde Desebrado, which is a shredded chicken with green tomatillo sauce. There are also many vegetarian options. The tacos are priced at $3 each and you can make any meal a combo (sides of rice & beans plus a drink) for $2.50. So prices are very fair... More
