I went here for lunch with my daughters. It looks like a converted school bus. The menu is pretty large. I had steak fajitas. They were fine. The meat was a little dry but otherwise they were fine.

classic taco bus. We tried another one but preferred this one. Had the carne asada tacos and the pork enchiladas both were super tasty

When it's open, it's packed. With good reason. Up the steps into a re-purposed bus for wonderful Mexican food. It's all outside dining . . . inside is for ordering. A large, easy-to-read menu is outside, and there is always a crowd making up their...minds on what to eat. What to eat is a question easily answered . . . anything. This was a destination from the planning stages of our trip and it'll be recommended to anyone we learn of who's planning a trip to West Yellowstone.More

Really, this far north. This restaurant is no fancy at all; styrofoam plates, plastic utensils BUT the food is delicious. I wish to have one like this one back home.

In my view, too expensive for food trunk. Food is not bad and there’s not much choice at west Yellowstone

This was a great place to stop while walking around the town. The street tacos were fresh and delicious. We especially enjoyed having our order taken by the little girl, who was helping out. I'm not sure I've ever met someone so happy to be...working and so friendly, (especially in the restaurant business). She definitely made our visit more enjoyable.More

Very quick service, I was very glad they had vegan options, and they had amazing staff! Will definitely go back! P.S. the line may look long but is very fast and you can order over the phone!

If Taco Bell is your idea of great Mexican Food, have I got a place for you. Tasteless refried beans, burnt carne asada, “sorry, we’re out of avocados and guacamole”? Not worth stopping…

The enchiladas verde were pretty good. My companions quesadilla was fair. They had outdoor seating which we prefer. The service was not great.

Loved the food. I ordered Chicken Enchiladas and it was one of the most delicious Mexican food I’ve tasted, and I live in Southern California! It was truly the food highlight of our stay in West Yellowstone. You have to enter the bus to order,...which I thought was very cool and innovative :)More

We got tacos, enchilada, nachos, rice- we were surprised this place was rated so high, it’s not that great. It did take a bit, and the nachos took longer, which I thought was weird. It was store bought chips and probably canned cheese sauce? Not...that cheap either... wish we had skipped and checked out some place else here...More

We heard so mich about the taco bus, we had to try it out. Love that you go inside the bus to order! Good food all around, we got a variety of dishes and enjoyed everything, especially enchiladas verde. Definitely make a stop here!!

We found this to be a great place for a quick lunch. We ordered our tacos at the window, picked them up a few minutes later, and enjoyed them at one of the picnic tables. Service was fast and friendly, and we felt it was...a great value. .More

This used to be a local place that we could brag about. Not anymore. The worst Mexican food I have ever had. Beans and rice were terrible. No flavor. The food took 30 minutes to arrive and it was COLD. The enchiladas were horrible as...well. How can you mess up enchiladas? Pretty basic food. I finally opened up one of the enchiladas to see if it had any cheese in it and there was a couple of strings only. Never again!More

I was a visitor ; not an owner so I really do not know if they are still open in October. I would imagine that the restaurant may close when it starts snowing. And the season starts to change in October. That is why I like... More

Do not know for sure, but in my experience (I write about food, so try a lot of different things) the mouth feel was rich, which probably means lard. Sorry.

Unfortunately it is first come, first served. We took our food back to our hotel.
