Got el Plato with steak. Food came out cold and gross looking. This place use to be great. I have not been in a while and I won't be coming back. Taco Son is now and has been for a while the best place for authentic Mexican. The menu at Taco Bus is a shell of what it used to... More

This place was a terrible experience. The employees were unfriendly and rude. Cook was using profanity. Stale taco. Cold beans. Hard rice. Asked to speak to someone about it and no one came to address the issue so I left. Over priced! This is a terrible place and I advice you to go anywhere else but here.

First time here for lunch. It was terrible. Bad atmosphere, cold refried beans, stale taco, hard rice. Unhappy and disrespectful employees. I can't believe they have a good rating. Maybe they were better before but it's terrible now. There are plenty of good Mexican restaurants in St Petersburg so go to one of them!

First for the positives: the venue was clean and the service was polite. However, the clean venue and polite service simply could not overcome the culinary deficiencies displayed at this establishment. Negatives: The dishes tried include a children's quesadilla, children's tacos, burrito (carne asada style), and tacos (carne asada style). In short, each of the dishes (aside from the children's...

Waited over an hour for 2 Taco's as they forgot our order (even though I'd paid!). This could be excellent but the staff don't care enough.

I used to love Taco Bus. I have been here multiple times and always try to come and eat when I come back. I went to the St Pete location and was sorely disappointed. Came one day and they were down on staff so they said they were going to be closed down for 30 min. Then the next day... More

Went here for dinner after it was highly recommended by a local. We all had different burritos and thought the flavors were disappointing. Nothing special, maybe even less than the many other local restaurants in the area. Prices a bit high for what you're getting. They do have a lot of fillings to choose from, including 5 vegetarian/vegan options. So... More

Good food, great service. The refried beans were "eh", the rice was probably heated up after being a couple hours old. But the marinated pork was down right amazing. All in all, I'd say this place gave me a "middle of the road experience".
