This restaurant is not recommended to those looking for a 5 star plated experience. Taco Bus' charm really comes from its authentic Mexican cuisine and urban rugged atmosphere. This isn't fine dining, it's Mexican food from a bus. But again, this is all part of...More

I always enjoy eating here. I love the butternut squash tostadas, as well as the tacos. Food is always fresh and tasty, not to mention cheap. Prices are very reasonable.
