Ate lunch here today. I had the burger which was delicious and juicy; however I like the Korean barbecue better. Husband had the Korean barbecue; he loved it. If in Key West you must eat here; wonderful!!!

We came for dinner and I got one mahi taco, and one shrimp taco, both caribbean style. The fish and shrimp were seasoned and cooked well, but overall taco lacked flavor. Maybe the asian style was better?

When in Key West this is a must stop place for lunch. This was our second visit here and this time tried the Korean BBQ Burrito, what can I say but it's amazing. My husband and I are still talking about it and craving it.

Go to Grunt's and you can't help but find Garbo's Grill. Garbo's has excellent food that is served in a very relaxing atmosphere. Get a drink and wait for them to bring your food. You'll not regret going to Garbo's Grill.

We have been home for a week and my chef husband is STILL talking about the short rib tacos at Garbo's. If we hadn't waited to go there until the end of our trip, we probably would have had to go back every day. Tacos,...More

What a great place! It's basically a food truck behind Grunt's Bar. You order at the truck, grab a table on the wonderful courtyard and wait for your food while you drink a local beer. So laid back and fun. This is what the Keys...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Does this place operate legally? Is it subject to the same inspection requirements that are imposed on Florida restaurants that are "brick & mortar" or do food trucks operate under a different set of regulations? I want to open a Food Truck soon in Key West. It is my destiny! Anybody got a vacant spot in their back yard that I can occupy?

Yes it is totally permitted and inspected! Not just a "run of the mill" food truck. This is 'da bomb!
