All of their food is awesome and very affordable. I especially love their veggie tacos and their huge burritos. There can be a long line around lunch time though!

This place started out as a food truck but did develop a following so they've expanded into indoor (and outdoor) seating as well. Food is good but not great, seems to be a mixture of Hispanic tastes.

Just moved here from Michigan, and I have to say this is one of my favorite authentic restaurants! It has vegan options, as well as vegetarian. The price is fantastic as well. Try the butternut squash taco..it's delicately sweet but pact with roasted flavors.

Incredible authentic food. I love the way they cater to vegetarians and vegans. Visiting the 'original' bus is an experience in itself. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!!!!

So the marinated pork in any one of the meals is outstanding! The burritos are huge! I have yet to finish one in one sitting.

Whether I go to the original bus or the "new" indoor Bus on Fletcher, I've never had a bad meal or bad service.

I am a Tampa Bay local so rather than preach to the choir, I'd say to anyone visiting our beautiful city that Taco Bus means a lot to us and we hope you'll try it while you're here. Tampa is a wonderfully diverse city with a vibrant Cuban/Latino culture and than means great food. Taco Bus has a bit of... More

I used to drive an hour one way to go to the Tampa Taco Bus location. So glad the St Pete Taco Bus opened so it is not such a long drive. Always great food and service.

This is a simple no-nonsense restaurant with good Mexican food. They have burritos, tacos (hard and soft shell), ceviche and more plus many fruit drinks and sodas. I was not thrilled with the ceviche, but have enjoyed everything else.
