Best burger in Key West

Although I am always telling my friends and visitors to the island that this place has the best burger on the island I have to take a minute to say that today's was exceptionally good. It's Sunday and they're not usually open and by some miracle they knew I was dreaming of said burger and were... read more

We "discovered" Garbo's Grill over a year ago when we were in Key West during a cruise ship stopover. Not wanting to eat at a "tourist trap" we asked the bike shop employees (where we were renting bikes) where we should eat. The told us about Margo's. We almost kept going when we saw the food truck but stopped after... More

We went here twice on our visit to KW. I feel the portions are large, and very very tasty. The Korean Beef taco was amazing. Loved the vibe of the outside seating on what resembles a front lawn. The bar inside has a great vibe as well. I was skeptical about going to a Food Truck in KW (we have... More

This place was a little hard to find for us because we did not know what we were looking for! Basically a food truck behind a bar. We showed up pretty late at night one night and they were out of almost everything except the Mahi Mahi Tacos and the hot dogs. We all got the tacos and we were... More

A new gem in Key West. A relaxing backyard grill with some of the best tacos and burritos I have eaten. Don't expect doors and windows, this food is found by walking down a driveway to the backyard of Grunts bar, then stepping up to order from a food stand. Tables and chairs yes, waiters and wine lists no. All... More

We made a point to visit after seeing on DDD. Loved the fact they are tucked behind a tropical tiki hut bar. The food was amazing from the hotdog with mango and habenero, the Korean spare ribs burrito and the Mahi Mahi everything was bursting with amazing flavors. Stop by, you won't be disappointed.

When my husband wants to go back for more, it has to be really good! We had the Mahi Mahi tacos, with red cabbage, mango, cilantro, jalapeno peppers, onion and the house carribbean sauce. You get 2 for $11.50 which is really a deal for Key West. It was definitely one of our most memorable meals!

Garbo's is now located on Caroline Street tucked in next to Grunt's. Just go up to the truck and order one of their fantastic hogfish tacos or other 'dishes'. Then grab a table and wait for your pager to go off. The tacos were huge with big chunks of fish - although if I went back I would go with... More

We visited Garbo's grill because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. It is in a cool shaded location at the back of Grunt's bar. It is a food truck. And the food is wonderful. On our first visit my wife and I split the fish tacos. If you like your food a bit spicy get the jalapenos. The fish... More
