We stopped here for lunch last week and split the Korean Tacos and the Burger. Both were excellent. They give you a pager so you know when your food is ready and we went into Grunts and had a beer while we were waiting. Also Grunts will let you eat your food from Garbos at the bar. We will be... read more

Great spot to get a break from busy Duval Street (right off Duval on Caroline), although still visible from their outdoor patio. Seats/tables are hard to come by during the lunch hour, as it also shares the space with a bar - it's literally a dash for open seats when people are getting up. Love food trucks and their comfort...

Delicious, fresh food at a reasonable price! Loved it. This is a very casual spot. Order from the counter, find a seat and then get ready to enjoy the best fish tacos ever.

Really good, everything is 100% fresh. Hidden behind Grunts, in the courtyard. Excellent stop for tacos or the killer hotdog.

We hit this place around 6:30 on a Wednesday and had no wait to place an order. We had the burger and the fish tacos (Mahi). As others have described, it's a truck behind Grunt's so just keeping walking. You grab your drink from an ice chest then take a seat on the shaded patio and wait for your buzzer... More

Looks can be deceiving... This isn't your average food truck! The food here, especially the Korean BBQ and fish tacos, are phenomenal and would give any high-end restaurant a run for their money. All I can say is eat here once, you'll be back over and over...

I was asked if a 30 minute would be okay from this food trailer located on the property of Grunts Bar on Caroline St. No worries I said as I grabbed their food pager and headed out to grab some beers. My pager went off under time and I retreated into Grunts and happily ate my 2 delicious Korean Tacos.... More

On our first trip to Garbo's they were sold out of the Umami Burger, so luckily we had one more day in Key West and returned on Saturday for lunch. We were not disappointed; the Umami Burger was worth the wait and the second trip as were the Korean Bulgogi tacos. We are outdoors people, so the "food trailer" and... More

We were in town for one day and after reading the reviews on trip advisor and seeing it on Triple D with Guy Fieri, we decided to try it out. The tacos are great....lots of flavor and are of a somewhat oversized portion! We tried their hot dog also which was good but could've used some more flavor; though, the... More
