“Taco Snob Loves This Joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you think this is a date place you are sadly mistaken. Nothing fancy about the décor. But if you are looking for perhaps the best taco you will ever have, this is the place. Super fresh. Incredibly unique flavors. Friendly staff. I really do not know what else to say. We try to stop at Diners Drive Ins and Dives locations when we are travelling for sports. This got great reviews. Tried it. Loved it. Drive back from Fort Myers just to have more. Whenever I am in Tampa this is a must. Just perfection and the place is immaculate.

“Not into it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Basically it's big portions of average food. I'd rather have small portions of great Mexican food. This is only ok. Everyone is Taco Bus crazy...I tried it once, and I don't see myself returning.

“I dont know what all the fuss is about?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Went here with Co-workers at lunch time. Holy COW! The line is forever long, there is very little seating, you practically have to fight for somewhere to sit. The food was large portions but I just dont see what all the fuss is about. Maybe because its in a school bus or maybe cause its a Food Truck . . .I dont know. The food is good but it isnt anything amazing . . . atleast what I had.
TIps: Dont go at lunch if you're in a hury, go at off peak times, if there is more than one of you have someone hunting for a table while the others are in line or you may not have a seat.

I obviously am not impressed but will go again if coworkers want . . . the food is good portions and good just not great!

“Supposed to be great for vegetarians...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

The menu does contain a variety of vegetarian options. The poblano pepper burrito was good, but not excellent. The ensalada with butternut squash was only 'ok' - not bad, but not super fresh and delicious.
