We went for a late lunch. The food truck is tucked behind Grunt's. There is not a lot of seating and it is all outdoors. Service is very friendly and the food is made as you order it. The mahi mahi tacos were amazingly fresh and the sauce complemented, not detracted from the fresh fish. A little too much cabbage... More

So. Two years ago in KW we were told about Garbos. Basically a food kart in a parking lot opposite Peppers of Key West. Didn't sound appealing until you tried it. I love spicy food and seafood - and they combine it perfectly! So on my 8th visit to the Keys I was looking forward to re-visit and their new... More

Had another great experience with Garbos when we last went at the beginning of November. We found their new location and was very pleased with the seating area that now accompanies the best food cart ever! The food was so good for our lunch that we returned for lunch again the next day! The wife ate her usual with a... More

Eli and Kenna rock it out. Your mouth will kiss you for going here it's that Damn Good! I had the Korean BBQ tacos and all I can say is, " I Want More! Give Me, Give me, Give me." This is the type of place I go to and say just pick what you want me to have. It's... More

I had the Korean beef tacos and my husband had the Mahi Mahi tacos. They both had great flavor and a little "heat" to them. Wish they would've been open Sunday, we would've gone back! Very tasty and quite quick service!

This place can be tricky to find (the cab driver didn't know) but all you have to do is call and ask! We ate here at the new location, behind Grunts. The courtyard is quiet and peaceful. Amongst the four of us we tried the korean beef, shrimp cayo, and fish tacos, and the burger. All were EXTREMELY good, very... More

Unbelievable that this small food cart in the beergarden of a bar can produce such a great burger. Mango dog was wonderfull as well...

We had lunch this month at Garbo's with a couple who lives in Key West. While we were waiting for the other couple to arrive. I went in and got a couple of beers from Grunt's Bar and had a wonderful conversation with the barmaid who had just relocated from Alaska. She was extremely friendly and the bar was super... More

Loved the blackened Mahi taco, shrimp taco was not that great. Do not go at the happy hour time for the accompanying bar grunts's ? as crowd tends to be at the peak around 6. Had nowhere to sit till happy hour was done at about 6 pm-then there were plenty of available tables.
