Pros: Convenient, quick service and friendly neighborhood style restaurant.
Cons: Loops like they will be doing a buffet soon. Would be good to get information on that if they are.

Review for Tampa Bay Lightning wrote by Sean
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingHalf Rating
Pros: It's good to have a great team in our local market. Going to a Tampa Lightning game is great fun!
Cons: Many people don't like that Tampa has a hockey team, let alone that our hockey wins the Stanley Cup.
Comments: The Lightning are a great team and its good to have them centrally located in Channelside which is in Downtown Tampa. Great fun for family, friends, and/or partiers. Also, there are great restaurants and bars in walking distance for enjoyment before and after the game.
Review for Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park wrote by Scott
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingHalf Rating
Pros: Clean and beautiful waterfront park in Downtown Tampa. Only a short walk from many of downtown's attractions.
Cons: The park doesn't have it's own parking so during events at the Forum or Channelside you may have difficulty in parking if you are driving here.
Comments: Not many people really know about Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park or maybe they know the area but not familiar with it actually being a park. The advancement of the Tampa Riverwalk has really made this park come to life. Just south of the Forum, along the water and ..
Review for Taco Bus Downtown wrote by Carlos
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
Pros: Tasty Mexican food, open late, convenient to South Tampa and Brandon residents
Cons: Parking downtown with one-ways streets can be a little scary
Comments: The Downtown Tampa Taco Bus has a completely different feel from the original location, but still has the same great dishes and is much more convenient to South Tampa, Brandon, and Downtown Tampa residents. Open late - a great stop after a night out partying in SoHo or at Channelside. ..
