Buzzfeed has named Tampa’s Taco Bus one of the top 25 “Most Popular Food Trucks of 2013,” after a nationwide survey which selected food trucks from across the country.
The list was created in partnership with the social networking site Foursquare.com
Taco Bus ranked 6th and given a rating of 9.2 out of 10. The website said visitors should try the “Butternut squash tostada and some horchata to wash it down.” The top-ranked food truck on the list was the Halal Guys of New York City, with its specialty of chicken and gyro served over rice with white sauce, Buzzfeed said.
Taco Bus is a Tampa institution that has grown to include four locations including its flagship bus restaurant in the Seminole Heights neighborhood. Founded by Rene Valenzuela, it has been featured on national television programs including Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.”
