Our driver from our Kayaking tour suggested this place to us. It did not disappoint. We had the fresh fish tacos. The portions were sizable and the fresh jalapeño and mango slaw was delish! I would highly recommend frequenting this establishment!

Its a trailer set up in the back of a small bar. We found it when we walked into one of the key lime pie shops and said that we were looking for real food... a place the locals like. And without hesitation, we were sent here. the only seating is outdoors.... which was kinda a bummer because there was... More

We've eaten at garbos twice since we've been in key west. It's that good! The umami burger is easily top 5 best burger I've ever eaten.

Kind of like a DIY dinner - find a table, queue up to place your order from the van, grab your own drinks from the cooler, then wait until you're called back to collect your food. All good fun and very relaxed atmosphere. The fish and shrimp tacos were both delicious. Think we were lucky to get a table as... More

Nice quiet location off of busy Duval Street. Cozy atmosphere with a separate bar. Had the Rib tacos which were wonderful. Husband had the fish burrito which was very filling. Not a lot of drink choices but enough to wet your whistle, plus you had the bar!

Garbos Grill is now located in a small lot with a building that serves beer and other beverages. The best thing about this new location is there is ample seating and shade. I absolutely cannot say anything negative about the food here. I ordered the Korean Bulgogi and was blown away. There are so many flavors that merge to make... More

Everyone's pretty much said it all when it comes to this place - read about it in the Keys forum - the destination experts recommended it and we were soooo glad we tried it. It was about an hour's wait to get our food - and that was at 2:45pm - which gives you an idea of how popular this... More

The fresh catch of the day burrito was the best. Fresh mahi-mahi with various cabbages and other fixings. Addictive! The atmosphere was quiet and tucked away. Very relaxing. Friendly staff!

You have to eat the fish or shrimp tacos! Very, very good! It's tucked away on Caroline St off Duvall St. We saw this place on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. It was worth finding!!!

We absolutely love the Garbo's Grill! My husband always has the shrimp wrap and I love, love, love the short rib tacos !!! You can't go wrong with anything from this amazing food truck..but go early, the lines get long?
