We are visiting from Ohio and our son has multiple allergies, my husband and I were so pleased that the menu listed items that are gluten free and they have dairy free "cheese" YAY!! The food was very fresh, service was quick and friendly!

We visited Taco Bus in downtown Tampa, as well as 913 E Hillsborough Ave in Tampa. Both were amazing! If you're wanting to eat in peace (without the flys landing on your food during the summer), go to the downtown location - it's an inside restaurant. But if you want the 'food truck' experience, and some sunshine - do Hillsborough... More

Just because its a Taco bus doesn't mean your expection bar has to drop. This is a fast friendly and super tasty meal. all the Tacos are excellent and a good rival to Mexico City. Its a great value and relaxing to sit at the tables eat your fresh Tacos and have a coca cola.

We came in town visiting my cousin and he suggested we try out this place called taco bus. It happened to be around 1:00am Sunday so there was not a lot of customers. I ordered three tacos with steak and veggies. Then I had a side of the green hot sauce which in my opinion was not that hot but... More

Late at night for a good snack. I would have considered this a three star, typical 'authentic' taco joint, except they had cochinita pibil! You can't get that just anywhere my friends. And, it was delish. So, nice price, cold beer and some tacos that you can't just find anywhere. I'd go back tomorrow if I could.

People have raved about how good the food is at Taco Bus. To me, it's not bad at all - the tacos I had were very good. I especially liked the cilantro added to the ingredients which added a little bit of an exotic taste. Honestly, though (true taco aficionados will boo at me), I don't see much difference between...

We drove to them extra for some food. Its $8.50 for 2 tacos and sides as a menu. I like this streetfood. But at the end it was very less. So normaly you have to take 2 or three meals.

I ordered the pollo verde burrito and it was so good! My boyfriend really enjoyed his burrito as well (he got the one with pork in it). We also had fresh mango juice- it was amazing! I wish we had that where I live. I highly recommend!
