Authentic Mexican in a Bus!

So fun! This place is a bus. The food is authentic mexican which was a nice change in a town full of tourist-ish restaurants. The character of the bus just made it fun to go but the great food made it that much better! Go check it out.

Excellent authentic mexican food, and my husband who is from Mexico agrees. Don't let the taco truck appearance deter you from eating here. Service was good, you go inside the bus to order and then you can eat outside at the picnic tables. I had a chile relleno with enchilada which was great and my husband had fajitas which he... More

I'm not an expert on Mexican food but we liked our entries and found the service, portions, choices and flavor all very good. We got takeout and there were leftovers for lunch the next day. They are open from 10:30 am to 10:30 pm every day. Amazing hard working couple.

Tasty spot in West Yellowstone. In a town where diners and bad bar food reign supreme, this is a great departure from the norm. The restaurant is located in an old bus with seating inside the bus as well as outside on picnic benches. The food a great. My husband got pork tacos and really enjoyed them. I got veggie... More

The Taco Bus is exactly what it sounds like. It's a renovated school bus with benches instead of seats and a kitchen in the back. I visited with my husband and a friend, and we were initially skeptical because the exterior isn't particularly professional. We were attracted to the prices, as the meals here were significantly cheaper than elsewhere in... More

Coming from central California, we get pretty picky about our Mexican food. The Bus is some of the best we have ever tasted. My wife, who would eat Mexican food every day of the week, couldn't stop talking about it. Don't miss this place.

I remember coming here 3 years ago and came back for a second try. The food was just as good as the first visit. We came a little later in the day and some of the dishes were not available. I tried something different and it was wonderful. I'm sure I will be back.

We ate here twice during our trip to Yellowstone. It was quirky ordering out of an old bus, but the food was excellent and reasonably priced ($8-10 per entree) compared to the other options in the area. Definitely recommended!

We hit "The Taco Bus" twice in our 4 days in West Yellowstone. This place could survive any street food/food truck scene in any major market. The family that runs the restaurant are working hard and were accommodating to everyone's questions and were willing to do some twists and turns to a dish. They have done a neat little job... More
