We checked this out thanks to DDD. The food was ok but not spectacular and the cost was high for what we got. Probably our least favorite DDD we've visited.

Nothing fancy here just good food. I had the quesidilla, my wife had the off beef tacos, my daughter and her husband also enjoyed their meals. The portions weren't large like most places but they made up for it with quality. I went back after my visit to ask if I could get a quart of Guacamole and the manager... More

I am a Tampa resident and have heard - time and again - that Taco Bus is the best and most authentic Mexican food in the area. My daughter and I happened to be in that part of town today and decided to give it a try. Food was overpriced for what we got - chips were stale - queso... More

Lack luster Chaney Brothers style food, in a dirt lot. The Hillsborough Ave location has easy access to rt. 75 & the Hood. Chips always stale with FL humidity, salsa of canned tomatoes with a roman salary of salt. Absent are fresh cilantro or pickled jalapenos, so don't ask. I've eaten at this location once with out prodding and several... More

First off, I had been waiting literally 3 1/2 - 4 years to eat a Burrito from Taco Bus...ever since I saw them featured on a Travel Channel show, (I think it may have been "Mexican Food Paradise"). I can honestly say I love their Carne Asada Burrito, so much that I ate one there, ordered another one to go... More

its a bus alright and more than one! Cool experience, very friendly bunch that serve up some great tacos. You need to try the watermelon flavored water - nicely refreshing in the Tampa heat. The fish taco is tres bien! We have been here a couple of times now and can't wait to see them again.

We loved Taco Bus during our visit to Tampa! We went several times and ordered a variety of things off the menu, all of them absolutely delicious! I enjoyed a lot the shrimp & chicken chipotle - delicious big chunks of chicken, but also was very impressed by their long list of gluten free and vegan options on the menu.... More
