This restaurant is actually a hollowed out school bus, sort of like a food truck, but with a few seats inside. Most of the seating is outdoor picnic tables. The food we got was delicious and well-priced. It was made to order but came out...More

We stopped here because of the Trip Advisor reviews; ordinarily, we would not be eating dinner from a bus. Glad we stopped. The order of three tacos cost $9 and tasted like it cost much more. Likewise for the order of chicken and rice for...More

Excellent Mexican food! Seating is picnic tables outside, so a little primitive or fun depending on your outlook. Pricing is reasonable. Similar to a “food truck” experience.

If you crave for Mexican food and not a big fan of formal setup, this is a good place to eat. It is school bus converted into a food truck. Food taste good better than any fancy restaurants. Serving size is worth your penny.

Great food in a unique setting, a school bus. The menu has plenty of choices and it is true Mexican food.

Never had dinner in a bus before and it was cute. No tables inside but they had a few outside. The food was very good, some of the best I've had.

I was forewarned about lousy food in West Yellowstone, with its slim choices of fast food, greasy American food (in the form of burgers), or pizza. So when an innkeeper in Gardiner (which I stayed earlier) recommended this "taco bus", I went and was not...More

We were in town for a convention and wanted something quick yet not fast food. We saw the Taqueria bus and thought why not? We weren't disappointed. Don't let the bus fool you they have a full menu and lunch and the food was better...More

I was a visitor ; not an owner so I really do not know if they are still open in October. I would imagine that the restaurant may close when it starts snowing. And the season starts to change in October. That is why I like... More

Do not know for sure, but in my experience (I write about food, so try a lot of different things) the mouth feel was rich, which probably means lard. Sorry.
