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. ..

Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
Pros: The service, the food, the cleanliness and the soda machine!

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.

About South Tampa

Although many people refer to Hyde Park being within South Tampa, we have separated the neighborhoods due to the amount of nightlife & restaurants in Hyde Park. South Tampa, encompassing the region along Dale Mabry south of Interstate 275 all the way down to MacDill Airforce Base, is located east of the Westshore District. When people talk about South Tampa nightlife, they are usually referring to Hyde Park nightlife but you will still find plenty of bars in South Tampa. Looking for a great meal? South Tampa restaurants offer a variety of cuisine from seafood to Italian. You will also find many small business owned shops in South Tampa.
