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

We visited for lunch and would also like to have tried out the breakfast, but ran out of time to do a second visit. Great concept, very informal, good food and affordable, with decent service. Beans and rice that accompany meals have good flavor and round out the meal. Sweetened drinks - could give these a miss and just have... More

I've never had Mexican food this good before in my entire life. It is literally served out of a bus.The prices are really cheap and there are tons of options to choose from. They have vegan options too. Give it a try, I think you'll like it.

Went to the one in Brandon for lunch one day. Ordered tacos. I love Mexican food and they were okay but not great. Meat was a little tough and dry. It's a cute concept but the execution seems average. Not a place I would go out of my way for.

I don't know how anyone can say this is a bad place!! The food is delicious. The staff if helpful and informative. I live 3 hours away and find any excuse I can to stop by. It's not a 5 star black tie event. It's good fresh food, in a fun environment.

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
