This place is pretty unique in they made two busses into a cool spot to grab tacos. It's definitely divey but that adds to the atmosphere. We had tacos, a beef burrito and chicken empanadas. I also tried the horchada which was good, but almost...More

Order the chips and queso! Chips are salty and you’ll want to lick the last bit of queso out of the bottom of the dish. Peanut allergy and Celiac Disease in our family and we all enjoyed our meal.

Came here based on reviews while in town for the RV show. Happened to be Taco Tuesday so that was great. Had two grilled chicken tacos with guacamole; their sauce was awesome. Super fresh tasting! I also tried a ground beef but didn’t like that...More

Taco bus is laid back, casual dining. Tampa can be pricey for food but Taco Bus was a nice break on my wallet. I had chicken tacos and they were pretty good. The queso and chips were all tasty!

I greatly appreciate the number of tasty vegetarian and vegan options on the menu, but the food itself leaves you bloated and feeling disgusting (unconscionable amounts of sodium and preservatives). One of those places that, while it tastes good going down, you regret it afterwards.

I have to say this place has gone downhill over the years. Popularity due to Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives has slowly changed the Original Taco Bus, and not for the good. The service is bizarre. No one cares if you order or if you don't,...More
