Real good spot to meet friends and grab a quick bite. Prices are great. Close to convention center. Quick at getting food out. Just a bit small place.

At around 12:45pm today (Sunday, August 7, 2016) I ordered a to-go order inside the restaurant for a burrito prenado with chicken, a quesadilla, and a tostada. After waiting 20 minutes for my food and realizing that people who ordered after me were receiving their food, I asked when my food would be ready. I was asked what I ordered... More

Enjoyed a quick lunch of tacos. The location and facilities are unique- not a white tablecloth type of joint. We had lunch outside in the shade. Tacos were fresh and service was 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.
