Great value! Good food! Neat environment! Was a bit confusing on its location, walked around for 15 mins looking for it before stumbling on its sign and then finding the food truck tucked back behind another restaurant. Worth the search!

We have visited Key West for years, but this was the first time we ate at Garbo's Grill. We ordered the fish tacos and the Korean barbecue tacos. Both were scrumptious! Service was quick and friendly. We had a table with an umbrella, which worked...More

Our first visit to the legendary Garbo's, which is basically a food truck with outdoor seating in a pretty nice courtyard, sharing the space with a bar next door where adult beverages can be obtained. We both ordered the fish burrito - which on this...More

We sought this place out as we’d seen the feature on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. What a perfect little spot tucked off Duval st! Great patio area off the street and away from crowds. And thankfully food did not disappoint! Those Korean bbq tacos are...More

The food here was amazing. We saw this on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives so we thought we would check it out. The food tasted amazing, service was fast, and portions we huge. A must do!

Great little location for a food truck. I was reminded of the shrimp trucks in Hawaii. We stopped in on our bikes, there is plenty of bike parking in front. It’s a little hard to find but it’s right behind a small salt box style...More

Went on 11/24/17 and 11/25/17. Both times were excellent. I have been here before on previous Key West trips and I always make sure to make a stop here, sometimes daily. I had their Burger and Korean BBQ tacos before and they were both amazing,...More
