Love the Burrito Prenado

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

And you don't want to miss it. It's not in the best part of town and it's tucked away behind an auto parts store so if you're not sure where you're going, you will probably drive past the first time. That being said, it is soooo worth it. Open 24 hours, and there is always a line, usually of people... More

The menu allow you to order specifically what you wanted. Pick the style (taco, tostada, etc.), add protein (steak, chicken, vegetarian, etc.), choose topping. Make a combo or not. Add chips salsa or other unique dips. Eat in or take out.

Where to start. 24 hour deliciousness. My favorites are the Conchinita Pibil, the Pollo Verde in a quesadilla, and also the butternut squash tostada. But ive never had anything bad there. Cant go wrong.

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
