After a little trouble finding the restaurant, we had the Korean BBQ, this is amazing. We ate inside and listened to the very nice band. Would highly recommend.

This place is somewhat of an unexpected food truck sat back behind a bar on Caroline Street. Sit outside and listen to music and enjoy the fabulous air of Key West. Key West itself is beyond touristy, but you must go here just to eat...More

Does this place operate legally? Is it subject to the same inspection requirements that are imposed on Florida restaurants that are "brick & mortar" or do food trucks operate under a different set of regulations? I want to open a Food Truck soon in Key West. It is my destiny! Anybody got a vacant spot in their back yard that I can occupy?

Yes it is totally permitted and inspected! Not just a "run of the mill" food truck. This is 'da bomb!
