Taco Bus July 28, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — beatlebird @ 8:47 pm

St. Petersburg has few late night eateries, and even fewer can boast being open 24-7 like the Taco Bus. This popular joint on Central Avenue, smack in the middle of the Grand Central District boasts an extensive and authentic Mexican menu, specializing in regional fare. Vegans can omit the queso in such dishes as butternut squash tostadas, rajas, tofu fajitas, and rice & bean burritos or tacos. Vegan steak strips are offered as meat subs in the taco, quesadilla, and burrito dishes. Guac, salsa, and refried beans are also good condiments. Taco Bus also has a selection of drinks such as iced tea, Horchata, hibiscus lemonade, Jarritos soda, and Mexican Coke, as well as beer.

Open 24 hours.
