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

We stopped into the original Taco Bus after visiting Ybor City. We are big Triple D fans and had been wanting to check it out. We ordered chips and salsa to start, and the salsa had a wonderful kick to it served with housemade chips. We both got a burrito, one Pollo Verde and one Steak Asada. By far the... More

Food was fantastic! Fresh and served quick. Servers bent over backward to make sure my visit was enjoyable. This is a must eat if you're in the Tampa area.

When we travel we like to seek out some of the places featured on Triple D. This place was fun, good food and friendly staff.

All I can say this place exceeded the review and feature segment provided by the Food Network. The location in St. Pete was good and tasty. I had a Carne Asada burrito with shrimp....hmmm,hmm good! I had the squash with chips that was surprisingly good. My dad love the cucumber lemonade so much that he started Googling recipes for home.... More

Went to the taco bus after a day at Busch Gardens. It was so good! We had a variety, from guacamole, burritos and tacos. Everything was perfect. The next time we are in Florida, we will definitely be stopping again.

The food was exceptional. I enjoyed the atmosphere. It was quirky, but the food tasted fresh and was enjoyable. The price was great. It was worth the trip. Park near the Advance Auto Parts.

The staff here are all so friendly! The menu has many choices & EVERYTHING we ordered was fantastic! We visited this because it was spotlighted on Diners, Drive ins, & Dives. Guy was right on as it was top notch. Prices are very reasonable & servings were plentiful. Choosing the filling for whatever you order makes you get just what... More

There is a reason why this place is famous. The food and its portions are great. The cochinita pibil is my favorite. The breakfast chorizo burrito is massive and yummy. Cannot go wrong!
