I loved the Taco Bus on Central, St Pete, so I assumed this one would be great. It was just ok, I do like the fact you can get good veggie Mexican. Try their nachos, ok for happy hour dining.

First time there ~ menu a bit overwhelming. Thought it was expensive for quality and quantity of food. Service was OK, young staff no personality.

I ordered three ground beef tacos with corn shells and a soft drink and the cost was $12. The tacos were tasteless and they fell apart on the first bite. The staff seem friendly but clues for food quality. Really bad.More

If you're looking for fancy Mexican, don't come here. If you want good clean Mexican food in a very casual on the border type setting, you might like this. It is not a new place, and it grew from a taco bus to a nice...More

Our food was pretty good. This place is more like a fast food restaurant than a restaurant. The atmosphere is dreary, run-down and not the cleanest place to eat. But if you're hungry for tacos, and you need to eat quickly, it's not a bad...More
