Fodor's Expert Review Taco Bus

$ Tampa Mexican

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—or put on a bed of fresh greens. Don't let the low-key nature of this establishment fool you—the menu features diverse offerings, with butternut-squash tostadas and grilled shrimp tacos 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.).
