The Taco Bus

Food trucks, a common street food grub in our favorite city of San Francisco. We were especially excited to hear the food truck phase was growing in the Tampa Bay area and The Taco Bus had one location close by in St. Petersburg, FL.

We both got two tacos each, all with different fillings (Carne Asada, Carne de Res Desebrada, Pollo, Cochinita Pibil). Our favorite was the Carne Asada. We came back a second night to get the same dish. So what did we think? The individual tacos are a little pricier than the West Coast, but they do fill them up more at The Taco Bus. Overall, we surprisingly enjoyed the experience for what St. Pete has to offer. It’s definitely not Tex-Mex.

We also loved the huge portioned drinks. Horchata, a rice with condensed milk and cinnamon/vanilla flavored drink, has always been a favorite. The watermelon drink was also refreshing and delicious. This place will probably be one of our regulars and we will most likely update you on the other menu items we try.

Location: 2324 Central Ave St. Pete FL
