If the quality of the food is your priority, Garbo's is the place in Key West. Hard to find (it's in a small food trailer behind "Grunt's Bar", and foodies who see you pass with a querulous look on your face will typically point it out for you), but well worth it. Shrimp tacos and galbi tacos were superb. Best... More

it was a little bit difficult to find this place. and there were not many tables and chairs.. however, the taco and burrito were amazing. I tried Korean taco and it was delicious. a little salty though.. it was close to the authentic korean galbi taste.(I'm Korean so...) my friend tried burrito with mahimahi(I don't remember the name) and it...

I always try to find a Triple D eating spot. Guy was right about the umamiburger at D.J's. It may be the best burger I have ever eaten. A word of caution. Don't buy it if you have a big dinner planned.

Don't let the food truck description fool you. It is the back of a tavern parking lot with plenty of tables. Their tacos do not disappoint! All were spectacular with distinct flavor and texture. Food is made to order and was fresh and hot. Menu is focused on their expertise. Get there when they open or line can be long.... More

I was home watching FN and happen across Diners, Drive-ins and Dives visiting Garbo's Grill in KW. Just so happens we were to arrive in KW in 2 days. So after we arrived in KW mid-afternoon and starving...we sought out for this place to eat lunch. We ordered their famous burger, their fish taco's and their special Mango Dog. All... More

Someone referred our big group of 20 to go to Garbo's and after finding the food cart, the search was worth it. They were incredibly fast and efficient at getting to food out and the food was perfect. The ingredient combinations were great and the fish tacos were cooked perfectly. Some of the best dinner in Key West!
