Best shrimp tacos ever!! Perfect amount of spicy and the shrimp were so big and succulent. Craving them right now as I type this. A little pricy but delicious.

The yum yum shrimp tacos are the bomb. Yellow snapper tacos are great too. The location at Grunts Bar is pleasant, quiet and relaxing. Garbo's is a must do in Key West.

My husband and I read about this place online and were so happy to find that the great reviews were all true! Nestled behind Grunt's bar (on Caroline, just off Duval), this tiny food truck is whipping out some pretty amazing tacos. It is a place I'm sure we will go to again and again, on our many trips to...

The atmosphere is unique and fun. It gets crowded later in the evening. You order your food from the food truck and wait for your buzzer to go off. There are tables but they fill quickly in the court yard. We ate in the bar and had a good time. Grunts gets good local musicians / bands. The yum yum... More
