“Superb quality food served from a truck!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Ok you sit under trees on a hotch-potch of boxes, coolers, stools and benches. Fine dining this ain't but excellent food it MOST certainly is. Dogs and quesadillas, freshly made to order and they yell your name when its ready. Kogi dog, filled with salad, daikon, peppers and hot sauce, so incredibly tasty. Yum yum fish quesadill just delicious and curiously a selection of sodas all the way from Wisconsin? Our tip? Have an early lunch cos they will sell out quickly and they'll be gone. Spoke to a woman from Washington who frequently visits Key West and had been trying to eat at Garbo's for the last 3 years!! Her fish tacos looked and smelled amazing, she said they tasted it too!

“Best Food and Price In Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Checked out the reviews and decided to give it a try after snorkeling on Danger Charters. I will definitely be back again soon. The Korean Kogi BBQ is the best. The atmosphere is awesome and the cooks were friendly. When in Key West this is a must visit.

“Tasty lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We visit Garbos every year on our trip to key west. I've never been a fan of the food truck, but this one is different. Although you may wait a bit, its well worth the wait. Not a huge selection but the food is amazing! Friendly people who obviously have a culinary knack.

“Fish tacos!!!! Mmmmmm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We had seen the reviews in tripadvisor, we stopped at a shop across the street and the sales staff said Garbos was the best. And they were so right. Very fresh and delicious. The fish were filleted and grilled while we waited. It's a food trailer but there are table and benches to use when eating. I will make this a regular stop when in Key West.

“BEST Food in Key West!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Okay we didn't actually eat at every single place in Key West so my title may not be 100% accurate, but it was the best food we ate during the week we were there- and we ate at some pretty awesome restaurants. Highly recommend the Brie and Mango Quesadilla with Fish. The fish was tender, cooked perfect, no bones- simply delicious, the mango was ripe, yet firm and sweet, and the brie was creamy and not too strong- perfect. The burger was awesome- huge...big enough to share. The shrimp yum yum tacos were also awesome. This street-food grill proves that quality ingredients prepared with attention to detail is the key to a delicious meal. The little corner where Garbo's Grill is located was comfy and had the best ceiling of any place I've ever eaten! Dress in whatever you want- nobody cares what you are wearing here- their only concern is whether you enjoy the food!
