"The working-class crowd, tattooed and tired, rubs elbows with the white-collar contingent from downtown. Anglos and Latinos in nearly 50-50 proportions; some sit and eat, most grab food to go. ... All this for marinated pork, fresh tortillas and ceviche served from a permanently parked white school bus that has been converted into one of the most recognized and recognizable kitchens in Tampa Bay."
