I tried this place over a year ago and because of the reviews I tried it again. I still don't get it. The food is served out of a tiny trailer with 3-4 people squashed in there. You wait in line in the heat for 40 minutes for food that is overpriced and average at best. For the same price... More

High end food from a truck. Very small menu but everything we had was great. Definitely get there early -- we ate lunch at 1:00 and by the time we left, they had already run out of shrimp tacos. The sign said they were closing at 4:30, but we walked by at 3:30 and they were closed up -- they... More

Was looking for a building that this place would be in but instead it was a food truck. I wondered how it got so many reviews being such a small food truck but after deciding to stay and try it out, I can see why. The food was awesome!!! TV shows have done some reviews on this place so we... More

Unbelievable fish tacos! The food here is so good you just shouldn't miss out. Watching how these chefs work is also amazing to watch. They are so organized clean and have such a great system that some restaurants could learn a thing or two. We will definitely be back!

The Cayo fish tacos are delicious! They're made with fresh caught fish right off the island and prepared with red cabbage, diced onions, sliced jalapenos, sliced mango, and drizzled with a yummy sauce. The fish is lightly blackened, which pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the mango. We tried Garbos on our first trip to they Keys in 2012 and... More

We went here for lunch. The best, the reviews on here are a good representative of what Garbo's is. A fantastic food truck with the best food. Great value a service included as well. It was quite busy but there is a little store right across from the truck, "peppers of the keys" or something like that. We ordered and... More

We've read the reviews and heard Guy Fieri rave about Garbo's Grill, so we had to try it for ourselves. Not only were the Cayo Fish Tacos and the Korean Bulgogi BBQ Tacos excellent, it was an overall fun experience interacting with the Garbo's crew, even though they were inundated with customers from the moment they opened their 5 foot...

Visited this place due to high ratings in trip advisor. Liked the tacos. They were delicios. The only remark, I will describe this pkace as a pick up place. So be ready to take food and eat it as you walk as thete is no place to sit

The food was so so good and priced great for Key West. I ate there every chance I got when there last week. I wish I would have tried the Kogi preparation, but I was so into the Cayo fish tacos and delicious fresh shrimp (the kind of fresh that is tender but snaps) that I didn't get a chance... More
