Welcome TACO BUS!

We are super excited to have Taco Bus join the Downtown Lakeland family!   Taco Bus was officially born in 2001 when owner Chef Rene Valenzuela from Monterrey, Mexico, brought his vision for a taste of Mexico to Tampa.

Why Lakeland you ask? Because Taco Bus fits perfectly with the Downtown vibe;  The Taco Bus food truck always does well at the Downtown Lakeland Food Truck Rally (brought to you by Downtown Lakeland Partnership);  Tons of emails rolled in from Lakelanders asking them to find a permanent home. The many events hosted Downtown also influenced the location choice. Thousands of patrons delivered to your door step for First Fridays, Food Truck Rallies, and the dozens of other annual events hosted Downtown each year makes a Downtown location an easy sell.

Also, Lakeland is the gateway to Orlando, and Taco Bus would love to grow there as well some day!
