Fodor's Review

It's a Mexican joint with a simple name in a less-than-magnificent location, but that matters not to anyone who's ever eaten to this legendary late-night establishment. Its popularity has turned what was little more than a food truck into a small local chain. You have a long list of meat, seafood, and vegetarian/vegan options, which employees will stuff into the casing of your choice and hand to you through the window of a stationary bus. Don't let the low-key nature of this establishment fool you—the menu features classier items like ceviche, butternut-squash tostadas, and chicken mole among the quesadillas and carne asada. There is also a downtown Tampa location (505 Franklin St.) as well as one in St. Petersburg's Grand Central District (2324 Central Ave.)
