This must be added to any agenda in Key West. Get the Korean shortrib tacos. This is the best food in the city.

Everyone told me to go here! Even the Food Network reviewed this place. ;) The Korean tacos didn't disappoint! They were amazing. I wish I could have gone back and had them again before we left. We also had the fish tacos. They were good but I highly recommend the Korean beef tacos. So amazing!

This is a superb place to eat. The food was so tasty and the setting is in a real chilled out area amongst a property called Grunts Bar which is a great little bar. The staff are really friendly and the speed of service is great. Do not be fooled by it being a served from a truck, it is... More

The food here is outstanding; don't let the fact that it is made in a food truck dissuade you from trying it. We tried almost all of the items on the menu, with each better than the prior.

Initially, we came for dinner and left because it was an outdoor patio with limited seating. I wish we would have stayed, came back the next day for lunch. The Korean Tacos and Burger was fresh. I would have to say that it was one of the best meals we had on the Island. I wish we had eaten here... More

The Grunt Bar and Garbos Grill is a great all around atmosphere especially with live music. The bar is in the front and then a food stand is set up in the back. They serve a variety of tacos or burritos served spicy or not. We got the Korean Bulgolgi with sirracha and the fresh fish (snapper) with jalapeño both... More
