My day job as a counselor (I only moonlight as a outdoorsmen/traveler) places me in the middle of the ghetto. Sorry, if that word offends some of ya’ll, but as my papa always says, “Son, call a spade a spade.” But just on the fringe of the ghetto, lies Seminole Heights and Tampa Heights. These are communities are being “revitalized” as HGTV calls it.
Taco Bus is one of those restaurants who presence in Tampa has transcended revitalization. They are a monument to what Tampa is: Cultural. I thought about not writing this post because there has been so much written and said about it. Taco Bus was even just on the Food Network, I believe.
Taco Bus gets its name because all of its food is cooked out a bus. That’s right. A big ol’ white school bus. And the Mexican food is out of this world. From the burritos to the nachos to the ceviche. It all begs you to eat more and then come back tomorrow. And the price is as equally good as the food. (If you walk away hungry you just haven’t tried.)
They’ve grown so much in the past few years that they have two additional locations in St. Pete and most recently in downtown Tampa. The main location on East Hillsborough stays open 24/7, which is surprising to me because of the location.
So, don’t wait. Make the Taco Bus a must eat when your in East Tampa.
Have any of you eaten at the Taco Bus? Is there a “Taco Bus” in your city that you want to rave about?
If the owner or manager of the Taco Bus reads this little of Florida blog, I would be interested in doing an interview with you. If you will leave a comment in this blog post or click this link to contact me, we’ll talk!
