This cramped narrow spot is better for take out than for eating in, but if you have a Mexican food craving, it will hit the spot. Being the southern California, I didn't expect much from this place, but the food is decent. And the price is right!

We had great food and wonderful conversations in this old bus converted to a restaurant. You place your order, have a seat, and when the food is ready you pick it up at the counter, essentially the back of the bus. Meanwhile, because the space is tight, >you are on a bus< you have a great chance to talk with... More

What an interesting idea, a restaurant inside a bus! We ate tacos inside the bus one night and it was great. The service was good, food was yummy and there was plenty of seating inside the night we were there. There is seating outside as well but it was a little cold that night to eat outside. Would recommend to... More

Clean good food. Friendly staff. And priced right. It's a school bus converted to a taco truck. You watch them make the food

This converted bus has a kitchen in the back and seats aand counters along the sides. I wasn't expecting much from Mexican in West Yellowstone, but their food was terrific! I certainly wasn't expecting shrimp dishes, either. I had camarones al diablo, and it was well prepared, the shrimp being perfect. Served with rice and beans and salad, plus tortillas.... More

I stayed in West Yellowstone for 5 nights, just a block from this little bus-restaurant, and ate there 3 times. I'm a big fan of Mexican food (not necessarily authentic, but the kind you find at most Mexican restaurants across the Midwest). This was by no means the best I've ever had, but it was pretty good. The menu is... More

This was a fun experience. They have over 30 menu items to choose from. My husband's tacos looked delicious. My pollo la Diablo was hearty although a little on the sweet side. It was a cool day so we stayed in the bus to eat our lunch...They had the heater going and authentic Mexican music playing. We had fun.

My wife and I were seeking a fast food option and after reviewing trip advisor, opted to try this. First, the menu is clearly presented in front of the bus prior to entering the narrow passageway as there is counter space for patrons to eat. There are also a few tables just outside the bus which is where we ate.... More

This is a fast and fun stop on your way through West Yellowstone and the food is ok. You don't often get to eat on a bus, right? There are also picnic tables if you'd like to be outdoors.
