This place was great! Don't let the looks deceive you. The restaurant itself is inside a bus parked next to a seating area. You can order to go, or eat there by the bus. The food is fantastic!!! Best burrito I've ever had, and delicious Mexican rice. Large portions at a great price. Open 24 hours, so you can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The service was fast and friendly. We were there at lunch and it was pretty busy. They do have a website and if you are in a hurry, you can order ahead of time. Make sure you hit the Taco Bus when visiting Tampa!

Unless it is a hot summer day, Taco Bus is great. Outside seating is a killer in the summer though.

We saw this place featured on Triple D and drove over an hour to check it out; the food was outstanding! The lines were crazy, everyone must know about this place. The staff were running around like mad but everything seemed chaotic but organized chaos. The price was perfect, the food fantastic but most of the seating is outdoors and there was a foul smell of dumpster or garbage lingering in the air. Most people were getting food to go; I understand why. Lots of people stood around just waiting for someone to leave the very few tables available. We discussed next time bringing lawn chairs and tailgating in the parking lot; I just hope the smell is gone by then.

Wow, this is really, really good food. DH and I had the pork; DS had fish tacos. Inlaws had tofu burrito. All were simply wonderful. Delicious guacamole. Long line goes quickly. We took our food to a nearby park (had to drive) and ate it there. If I lived in Tampa, I'd be a regular here!

Most Mexican places you'll find serve the same old generic Americanized Mexican food, and avoid anything that Americans aren't used to. The Taco Bus does the opposite - they serve authentic southern Mexican food. Among their more exotic offerings are Cochinita Pibil (a pork recipe that has its origins in Mayan times) and Lengua (beef tongue). But don't worry, there are some less adventurous options that are equally good, including the very good Pollo Verde (shredded chicken with a piquant tomatillo sauce). The guacamole is also incredibly good, and if you're looking for an interesting beverage, choose from their selection of agua fresca or the sweet vanilla and cinnamon flavored horchata.

You order your food from the window of a bus, which also serves as the kitchen, and there are a number of tables scattered around inside and outside. In other words, this place is very casual, but is the most authentic you'll get in the Tampa area.
