Amazing, simply amazing

We stumbled across this place on trip advisor, it was highly rated, so we thought we would give it a go. It was INCREDIBLE! It is essentially a food truck in a courtyard behind a bar called Grunts (which is also a cool little bar), but don't let that put you off! The food they produce from this... read more

Just missed the lunch service but waited an hour and a half for this place to re open due to the fab Trip advisor reviews. We ordered the fish, Steak and Shrimp Tacos between 2 of us meaning that we had one of each Taco each. They were simply amazing. We also ordered drinks from 'Grunts' which luckily had a... More

We visited Garbo's Grill after seeing in on DDD. It did not disappoint. The Umami Burger is top notch. Juicy burger that is way bigger than I expected. We planned to go back before leaving the Keys for the Korean Bulgogi but didn't make it. We will definitely be visiting again on our next trip to the Keys. A FAVORITE!

3rd time at Garbo's - 1st time in new location on Caroline Street. I will have to say this a good move for Garbo's / Grunts Bar to align together on same property. I had the Mongolian beef taco and my husband had the mahi fish tacos. He was a little disappointed this time with the fish saying it was... More

We ordered the Umami burger and the Korean Bulgogi burrito to test two different items on the menu. The burger was aok, but the burrito was OUTSTANDING!!! I would come back again just for that. What a treat!

Wonderful little gem of a place to eat. A little hidden behind Grunts Bar but definitely worth looking for. We had the bulkogi tacos and the fish tacos. Both were good but the bulkogi tacos were what we had to go back for again the next day, yummy!

This is a gem in the middle of Key West! Don't miss it! I had the dog with mango, jalapeños, onions & aioli. My friends also loved the burger & tacos. You will be happy you stopped!

The freshest 'catch of the day' fish tacos you could ask for. Snuggled in the backyard of Grunts, go get yourself a cold one there, pop a squat at a shaded table surrounded by palm trees whilst you wait for your deliciously prepared taco, burrito, Caribbean hot dog or burger. Be patient, takes about 20-25 minutes to prepare but you... More

This is our third day in Key West. We have found the best here at Garbos Grill. Shrimp and Korean beef tacos were our lunch. We are going back for dinner for the fish tacos and more Korean beef tacos. Great food, great people. Who needs anywhere else?!

Most amazing Korean bbq tacos ever!!!! First time eating here and will be back before we leave again. Also tried the shrimp tacos, if you are not to fond of hot sauce then don't try it, if you do make sure you have a bottle of water near by.
