No Place to Sit

Wonderful food. Unfortunately, the spacious patio is seriously lacking tables & chairs. Do no plan on having a place to sit during peak hours.

It's hard to give an outdoor cafe where you have to stand in line for both a table and at a cart to order food and a separate building to buy beer five stars, but this is for real. The food is so good it's more than worth it. After getting a table (10-45 minute wait expected) and ordering our... More

I visited Garbos Grill with my wife. I had the umami burger and my wife the Korean tacos. The grill is in a new location behind a local bar that serves beer and wine. (they have no hard liquor) This is a very nice atmosphere for eating lunch and they have clean bathrooms. You can have a beer and a... More

Casual little 'restaurant' we saw on Diners, Dives & Drive ins. It actually is a food truck parked in the back yard of a bar. The eclectic menu satisfied us all. I had the mango hot dog which I swore I would not be able to finish - but I did. The fish tacos were superb, as was the burger.... More

We had heard a lot about Garbo's Grill the last time we were in Key West. Very happy to see the new location at Grunt's, which is one of our favorite bars. Creative food that seems a little pricey until you get your food. We had the fish taco's and I wanted to go back every day for more. There... More

Garbo's Grill is a truly mouth watering ,and extremely well priced treat.Always fresh and made as you wait(patiently and happily)for your delicious food. Everything is great(not just good)and looks as pretty as it tastes.In a nice outdoor setting you can sit and enjoy or have it wrapped to go (in earth friendly containers).My favorite is the Korean beef BBQ tacos.But...

First, we were really surprised by how many tables were available. The food truck is in a pretty courtyard behind Grunt's. They lease the space. You can get a beer at Grunt's and bring it to your table. There are nice restrooms as well. Our meal took about 15 minutes at the most. We were lucky there wasn't more of... More

We loved it! Great food with great flavors. Stopped 3 times during our trip. Everything we had was excellent. Do you deliver to South Dakota? LOL

You will probably need to wait a while to get a table & then wait a while for your order but it's worth it. Try the Korean tacos. They should think about adding more tables as there's plenty of space.

This grill is a gem in the heart of an alive and yet down to earth city. Key West is complemented well by Garbo’s Grill – A food truck kitchen in the middle of a garden style indoor/outdoor restaurant and bar. Baron wrapped hot dogs are on the menu need we say more about a foodie find?! For the less... More
