Stopped here for dinner on the recommendation of a good friend and was happy we did so. From the outside, it looks like a little hole in the wall, but that is part of the charm. Once you step inside, you appreciate its kitchyness of...the fish wagon concept, with old license plates and stickers all around. You order yourself from a limited menu of mainly seafood options (grouper sand which, fish tacos, cracked conch sandwich, shrimp tacos, etc) the drinks (soda and a killer key lime-aid). The workers in the wagon were super friendly, the food was fresh and the quality perfect (I got the cracked conch sandwich and it had a ton of meat in it while my wife got the grouper sandwich in fresh Cuban bread) would strongly recommend if you want a quality meal at reasonable prices (which we did, having been severely disappointed in the Conch Republic Restaurant two days prior).More

We heard this place was great, but everyone in our party agreed - they were the best fish tacos of our entire trip (and we ordered them everywhere we went!) The staff was awesome and we loved the ambiance. We can't wait to come back...one day - it will forever be on our list of Key West stops!More

Who knew? Everything I tried was perfect but the burger, for me took the prize. I would go back here again and again and again.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, well from the inside either, but the food is delicious and fresh. Very eclectic and chill. Loved it so much we came here twice. Fish and shrimp tacos both times because they were just that dang...good.More

I stopped here for a quick bite before an evening cruise. The Grouper sandwich hit the spot. The place is not fancy, but the food was good.

Our cab driver from Conch Cab (I believe Laura) recommended this small basic place. The grouper sandwich and mahi mahi were delicious and washed down with limeades. It is not fancy and there is no beer but we went there twice for fresh and tasty...seafood. The manager was very nice and we enjoyed our chat with her.More

My family gave me the side eye when we walked up. Really really good food! Onion rings, conch fritters, fish sandwiches, french fries, and one of the best cheese burgers! Everything was really really good! It is not somewhere you go if you want a...fancy place. It is Keys casual and amazingly great food.More

Such a treat. We’ve ridden by B.O.’s for years on our bikes, but never stopped. A friend who eats lunch here at least once a week while he winters over in the Bight said, STOP, don’t keep passing it by - try it. So this...visit we did. We found the fish sandwiches (one fried grouper, one grilled mahi) were very tasty - you could really taste the freshness of the fish, and the snappiness of the lettuce and tomatoes.. The coleslaw was also very good. Fun atmosphere, maybe a bit too rustic for some, but right up our alley.More

We say Bobby Flay recommend the tacos so we had to go. OMG they were DELICIOUS! We've been here both times we've come to Key West and they have been delicious every time. Super nice staff both times too.

This glorified food truck was recommended to us by locals. Super glad we went. The ambiance matched the fantastic food! Try the conch fritters for sure!

We went to this place because it was highly rated and was a suggestion in my Key West travel book. But we were not impressed. Their special feature fried grouper sandwich was not tasty at all. It had zero flavor. The bun was so large...and the coating had zero flavor. Could barely taste the fish. I will say that had the best conch fritters that we had while we were there. And their cut fries were very good. But $36 for a sandwich, a can of soda and an order of fries - not worth it. The vibe is definitely funky- we had our feet pecked a few times by a rooster. I am glad I tried it, but I don’t intend to go back.More

This is great if you like dives. It has picnic tables and a counter facing the street. Our food was great. We had the fried grouper sandwich and the fried Mahi plate. The fries were fresh cut and the black beans and rice were outstanding....Can also get your fish grilled. It's like eating at a food truck without the truck and it is covered. Live music some nights.More

B.O.'s Fish Wagon is on Caroline near the harbor. The exterior looks forbidding but it is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner with top notch fish tacos, slaw and cold beer. Speedy service. Family owned. Order at the counter and find a seat among...the funky atmosphere.More

Been going to KW since the late 60s. Bo's has been in business for just over 30 years. Do not let the outside fool you. Good Food and super staff. This is NOT high end dining but a real good place for a quick lunch...in a very rustic setting. Lots of locals and seasonal repeats. Had swordfish special cooked "medium at best" and was very good. Home made fries are excellent and great cole slaw, both made fresh every day. Beer, soft drinks and tea.More
