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 love this place every time I visit my friends at Tampa. If I ever feel the need to snack on something and it's late at night I think of Taco Bus. It's affordable and they deliver quality food. So far I have tried their...More

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

This place ties with Vallarta's, the crappiest so called Mexican food to ever touch my taste buds. However anyone looking for authentic amazingness, head to San Antonio Florida

We stopped by after a long day at Universal Studios. I love Taco Bus. Got a massive burrito with the creamy chipotle chicken. Absolutely divine. Got chips, guacamole & queso sides. And Mexican coke. Loved it all. Was fast and fresh. I can't wait to...More

Not great atmosphere, but dude, it has the word "bus" in the name! There's a pretty streamlined menu: pick your kind of dish, pick your protein, pick your toppings. So we're not talking gourmet, but vegetarians and omnivores both can get a filling, healthful meal...More
