Loved this place. It's a good cart in the beer garden of a bar so plenty space to sit and have a drink whilst waiting for your order. Believe all the good stuff you read - it was seriously fantastic! Our favourite meal in key west along with Bien!

We went for the fish tacos but ended up having the shrimp also! We loved our lunch and added a draft beer from Grunt's because we were on vacation! Definitely walk the short distance off the main drag for this place! Look for Grunts and Garbo's is in a corner behind it, we saw a few folks walk past!

We've been a few times and the food was good each time, nothing super special but I'll eat there again I'm sure.

After a long day of snorkling, we wanted to have a quick bit to eat. Nothing big because we were meeting friends for dinner. Our snorkel instructor told me about this place. He said its were all the locals go and he eats there 4x a week. We would have never found this on our own because its tucked behind... More

I will admit I was hesitant eating in a food truck style restaurant, but boy did they proof me wrong and Change my outlook! The food was 5star restaurant quality! The fish tacos and burger were excellent. Cute little place right off duval, but away from the madness. Would definitely recommend :)

We had seen Garbo's on tv on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives, but never had eaten there, when it was located in the parking at Greene and Simonton. Now that this particular lot is being converted to affordable housing (affordable, starting at 1.5 million per unit) they had to move. They moved into the area in the rear of the... More

This is truly a hidden gem in Key West. If you don't look hard enough, you will never find this. We almost missed it even with a gps in hand. This is behind 407 Caroline Street, Key West, FL. That will help you find this place. We ordered the Korean Bulgogi Burrito and Cayo Fish Taco. I absolutely loved the... More

Enjoyed yum yum shrimp and a glass of Red Diamond merlot. It was great. We didn't wait for very long. Enjoyed the food and company.

Easily the best dish of our trip, the Cayo Fish Burrito was incredible, excellent value and beautiful atmosphere set off nicely with live samba and jazz in the outdoor seating area. A truly refreshing experience in Key West. We'll be back again tomorrow for sure!
