We had the Korean BBQ and the yum yum shrimp and both was fabulous. It will now be our "must go" stop when we come back down

We've been to Garbo's Grill before and loved the food. It's a food truck on Caroline Street behind Grunt's bar. You order your food from the truck and they give you a pager. There are seats outside. If you want beer, wine or a drink you can get it inside at Grunts. The first day we went to Garbos, my... More

We stopped at Garbo's for lunch. We had the Umami burger and the Korean BBQ tacos. Both were really good and freshly made. My favorite were the Korean BBQ tacos - so flavorful. They have outdoor tables to eat and if you want alcohol, it is available inside at Grunt's. Definitely worth a try!

We can't go to Key West without visiting Garbo's. We always talk about how great this place is so we took my sister. We and she loved it. Always fresh food and friendly staff. Was busier than any other place I went to on a SLOW week in Key West. It is the slow season but you would never know... More

Hard place to find but it's worth the effort. Eat here every time we come to KW. Always enjoy the Korean BBQ burrito. Kinda spicy but just right.

The food was good, but not excellent. It was quickly served though. The atmosphere was pretty cool. It's basically just an open air patio with a cook trailer in the back where you order. Very laid back. You order, get a buzzer, your buzzer goes off and you go pick the food up where you order it. They give you... More

Grunt's Bar and Garbo's Grill are together. The food truck food is great. Had a few beers from the bar and the fish burrito. Could not have been a better evening for my wife and I. Most don't know about it. Away from the craziness.

We have eaten at Garbo's Grill twice so far on our honeymoon and cannot say enough good things about this funky little spot. The Food: We have tried the Korean BBQ and Yum Yum Shrimp Tacos (both Korean and Cayo) as well as the Mango Dog and the Umami Burger. The Korean BBQ tacos were not light on the meat... More

For our first dinner in Key West after a long travel day, this place was perfect and delicious! Just off the beaten path in a cozy yet still pretty lively area, we were beyond happy with our choice to get a quick meal at Garbo's and drink next door at Grunt's. Try the Korean BBQ tacos and Mango dog!

Thank Cristina L
