Taco Bus to open in downtown Sarasota

/

taco busBeloved Tampa Bay area restaurant chain Taco Bus has confirmed that it will open a location in downtown Sarasota. The restaurant will take over some of the former Sarasota Hardware space at 1554 Main St. No date has been set for the opening, but it will likely be near the end of the year or in early 2015.

Taco Bus began as, well, a taco bus in Tampa, well before the current food truck craze, attached to a permanent building on Hillsborough Ave. In the past five years, the restaurant expanded into five locations in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Brandon, with Sarasota scheduled to be the sixth.

The chain's popularity mainly stems from its presentation of a wide variety of traditional Mexican tacos featuring fresh ingredients. Taco Bus helped introduce a style of taco that you can find in neighborhood bodegas and cafes pretty much everywhere to a more mainstream audience that might not have the culinary curiosity to venture off the beaten path.

I've eaten at three of the Taco Bus locations and love the place. Expect a frenzy.
