if you are in Key West and are looking for a unique lunch, you have to try Garbo's. They have the best and most unique tacos!

The restaurant came highly recommended by a local and my husband and me were very excited about the fish tacos. The food was OK but it doesn't live up to the hype. The tacos were not grilled, the fish did not have any flavor. Staff were friendly. Do not waste your time though.

It's a little out of the way, around the corner from Kelly's, and worth the search. Beer from Grunt's while we waited for the delicious food was enjoyable. Other writers said it first, a bit of a wait for a table, but SO worth it. I had shrimp, he had short rib, both with savory Korean spice. Sweet Cayo for... More

We went there for lunch and the place was quite busy, it's hard to find a place to sit sometimes. I had a korean shrimp burrito which was fabulous and there were lots of shrimps in it, perfectly grilled for very good price. It's a nice change to all this overpriced Key West restaurants. We'll come back tonight to for... More

I've been to Key West three times this year and Garbo's has been in a different location each time, but it's totally worth finding them! I like the new location with the tables and chairs, and the bar, although the novelty of being in a parking lot before was fun too. Everything is delicious, but the shrimp tacos (cayo style)... More

We arrived into Key West and searched for this restaurant, quite hungry - it is a food truck that is tucked behind Grunts. It was well worth it as we ordered the freshly made grilled shrimp tacos. There is a nice shady area for eating and restrooms close by. Quite delicious!

On my latest visit to Key West, we had the good fortune to try Garbo's Grill. It is partially hidden in the back of "Grunt's" lot, just a few steps off of Duval. Garbo's "kitchen' (ostensibly a food cart but don't be fooled) offers exciting combinations of food at very reasonable prices. This collaboration with Grunt's, a long time watering... More

At first I had a hard time finding it because it was a rainy night and there were no signs on the street. The little bar in front is called Grunts and I was confused. Where is this place? (It's actually a Food Truck out back). But after asking the locals they told me to come back the next day... More

We couldn't find this last time, but glad we tried again this trip! Very casual, but exactly as advertised. Fabulous food, quick, hot, and fresh! Now behind Grunts Bar, which is also fun. Great service too. Make the trip!
