Great food in a unique setting, a school bus. The menu has plenty of choices and it is true Mexican food.

Never had dinner in a bus before and it was cute. No tables inside but they had a few outside. The food was very good, some of the best I've had.

I was forewarned about lousy food in West Yellowstone, with its slim choices of fast food, greasy American food (in the form of burgers), or pizza. So when an innkeeper in Gardiner (which I stayed earlier) recommended this "taco bus", I went and was not...More

Good food, and freshly made for a reasonable price. Their salsa is not medium, but HOT (habanero) but the dishes were made quickly and for a very fair price. Good luck trying to find the same in West Yellowstone without he wait and additional cost....More

I ordered the Burrito Verde with shredded beef. The burrito had rice and beans with shredded beef wrapped in a flour tortilla, topped with green salsa. Very good!

Good solid Mexican cuisine and a good value. Order at the counter inside an old bus and pick up your food and eat at one of the picnic tables or take back to your hotel room. Taco's and Burrito's were excellent with fresh vegetables

Most of the food we tried in West Yellowstone was tourist fare and disappointing, but the Mexican food served at either of the two buses was the best food in town. No beer, wine, or table cloths and outside seating on a clear day, but...More

Give the school bus a try. It's average, but in this town, average is the best you'll get. Typical range of plates with rice and refried beans. Cheap and filling.

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.
