Don't forget to feed the chickens

This is a shack of all shacks, but man, what great seafood. We were craving a grouper sandwich & many recommended this place. It's off the beaten path, but worth the walk. If you are freaked out by chickens (who love french fries, btw), this is not your place to eat because there are many... read more

A quick casual lunch. Counter service and not a huge menu but fresh casual style fish and shrimp items. Excellent Fish tacos (choice of fish/grilled or fried).The Key West Pinks (medium sized grilled shrimp on a skewer) will probably be the best shrimp you have ever tried! Cold beer and very efficient friendly counter service rounded out a great lunch... More

Terrific music on Friday nights from 6 - 9 pm. Barry Cuda and the Sharks play the music live. The fish sandwich was rated the best in the Keys by Conde Naste magazine. Outstanding fries - cut freshly on the premises daily. They recently started accepting credit cards.

Eclectic little place - interesting decor and free roaming chickens. Shrimp tacos and fish tacos were great - came with a side of rice and black beans. Limeade was good mixed with the unsweetened tea.

We were told BOs fish wagon was terrific. It was in deed. Don't let the appearance fool ya. Its NOT just for locals. Make sure to share the bun crumbs with the chickens. You don't have to have GROUPER to have an awesome fish sandwich here. Great portion size and the fish was seasoned and fried to perfection.

I'm usually in KW 3-4 times a year and stop here frequently for lunch. It's been going down hill for awhile. Last week, I had a poor excuse for a grouper sandwich. Over cooked grouper on a piece of what tasted like grocery store bought cuban bread ... for only $19.00... and it comes with no sides or anything. Too... More

We had a great lunch at BO’s Fish Wagon, which is a fascinating, kitschy, delicious, and probably totally unsanitary place built around an old food truck. If you’ve never eaten conch fritters while chickens roam freely by your feet and jump on the tables, then I suggest BO’s! By the way, the conch fritters are delicious, and my husband loved... More

This funky little place was great fun for the kids. Sitting outside with the chickens moving around our feet. The waiter did spill cocktail sauce on me, but it was good tasting cocktail sauce...so there's that. Loved the fried conch and calamari. The fish sandwich and hot dog were just ok. I would go again, though I would not go... More

This is a "must eat"! There is no way you can visit key west without stopping at Bo's! The conch platter is simply delicious and the fresh catch tacos are a very close second. We got rice and beans as our side and we so glad we did! Don't leave Key West without a stop at Bo's!
