incredible sums it up. We've been making it a stop when in Key West & their new location just makes a great experience even better. The burger is the best I've had, my wife always has the Bulgogi. Have recommended & will continue to as must in Key West.

My wife and I shared the short rib burrito and the shrimp burrito. It was the best food we have had on our trip to the Keys. So amazing, that we went back to order some for the road. Absolutely wonderful. A must if you are in Key West!

This guys have a fantastic joint. The place is as relaxed and laid back as Key West gets, but the food belongs in any top restaurant. The menu is simple but simply delicious. We had a burger, hotdog and one of their famous tacos and everything was finger-liking good. Will come back for sure!

We had to try this food truck, since it was rated #1 on TripAdvisor! The location is great, and the weather was nice. They ran out of fish, so I could not try the famous fish tacos. I had Yum Yum shrimp and it was OK, I think I would have liked the fish tacos better. My husband had the... More

Everything is delicious, but the shrimp tacos is my favorite. My friend told me Umami burger is maybe the best burger she's ever had. I like the new location with the tables and chairs, and the bar, although the novelty of being in a parking lot before was fun too. But really, you can't go wrong with anything you order.... More

I ordered a shrimp burrito and it was top notch. This is an unconventional place; you order from a cart and just hope there is a table open. They make the food fresh so it takes 20-30 minutes. They are friendly enough, but you are not pampered like at a sit down restaurant. But I love the ambiance and you... More

Cool environment, a court yard / patio on the perimeter of a bar with a food truck to order the food. Great setting! Great food! Only negative was an inebriated customer! But, would go back!

I always make sure to visit Garbo's Grill when in Key West. They recently changed their location to Caroline Street; it is in the same location as Grunts! They make the best food; the flavors are wonderful. I had the Korean barbeque and it was amazing. I saw the burger and will order that the next time I am in... More

Is this the best food to ever come out of a tiny food truck? Yes. Is it better than most of the highly regarded restaurants in Key West? Yes. Yes. Yes. It's casual and there's a yard for sitting in and you can get a beer from the bar that shares the yard. Order the shrimp tacos Caribbean style...It's a... More
