Original Tampa Taco Bus location offers 99-cent tacos this week in honor of reopening

To celebrate its reopening and new renovation Taco Bus’ original Hillsborough location is slinging 99-cent tacos all week long.

Beginning Monday, Nov. 9, and running all week long, you can slide to Taco Bus’ OG location at 913 E. Hillsborough Ave. in Tampa for your bargain tacos and check out the joint’s renovated digs.

“We’ve invested close to $250,000 on a new state-of-the-art kitchen, ordering system, patio, and more!” stated Heather Chaudhry, Director of Marketing for Taco Bus in a statement. “New booths and tables, flooring, and fresh paint have also been added to really make it shine.”

Prior to renovations, the location had major screentime being featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives where he claimed he ate, “The best torta I’ve ever had.” Might not hurt to snag a torta while you’re there, too, since the king of Flavortown vouched for it.

Other menu offerings include tostadas, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, chimichangas, empanadas, bowls and the signature El Jefe burrito weighing in at over two pounds loaded with your choice of protein, double rice and beans, cheese, sour cream and guacamole. Wowza.

If you can’t make it out for the week of buck tacos, the resto offers student and veteran discounts daily.

And if you’re really nostalgic for the old days of Taco Bus, you might want to scoot a few miles down Nebraska Avenue and find the restaurant’s old founder, Chef René Valenzuela, slinging tacos out of a trailer.

Taco Bus Offers “Win and Win” Promotion to USF or UCF Fans and Students

Tampa, Florida – November 7th, 2019 – The “War on i4” has quickly become one of Florida’s most exciting collegiate rivalries. Taco Bus’s latest promotion will offer a 50% discount to fans and students of the winning team.

On November 30th, any diner who presents their student ID or is wearing team spirit clothing for the winning team will receive the 50% discount on their entire order from participating locations.

“Our Tampa locations have long served USF students, and they have played an essential role in our success. However, our new Orlando location has quickly been embraced by UCF students.” says Taco Bus Director of Marketing, Heather Chaudrhy. “We see this promotion as a great way we can show our support to both communities. Tying the promotion to the winning team is a way for us to keep it chido.”

However, not all Taco Bus owners are as impartial. “As a UCF graduate and lifelong Orlando resident, I am putting my support behind the UCF Knights.” says Priyanka Shetty, the owner of Taco Bus Orlando. “UCF students have welcomed the brand to Orlando and have quickly made us part of the Knight life.”

This promotion will be offered at the Tampa location at 2320 E. Fletcher Avenue and the Orlando location at 11325 University Blvd.
