This is a food cart, not a restaurant. However, all the ingredients are fresh, well-flavored, and the hostess-chef is great. A great beach vacation find.

Tracked this place down after reading the rave reviews on Tripadvisor. Maybe these people went in the evening when it was not unbearably hot and maybe they had no kids. The table is one of those very high ones and it really is a small square table. The kids were flagging from the heat and were not up to sitting outside in the heat, let alone getting oily food down to themselves with care. Good food and such a caring lady. We should have opted for indoor cool today though. This cart is on the edge of a carpark, facing the pavement towards the. Wish we could have experienced it at another time!

I went there for lunch with my wife, brother and his wife. Three of us had the Mahi Burrito and one had the Mahi Quesadilla. All fantastic, fresh fish grilled to order. The Burritos had a mango salsa, cabbage, and, jalapeno. Great food, and Garbo is a wealth of information about the island.

We read the reviews of this food stand on several internet sites - all good - so we made it a must-see while in Key West. It was a delightful experience in every way from the sweetheart owner/operator right down to her luscious fish burrito. Her personality alone makes it an enjoyable spot to stay awhile (and we did as she and I chatted up Mystic, CT) and her food is delish too. I know food carts aren't thought to be fine dining experiences but this one is definetly a winner. The owner knows what's she's doing on the grill as the burrito we ate offered layers of intense flavors that all melded together perfectly along with her sensational sauce; a burrito like that has a lot of thought put into its construction. We loved it here and wished we could have taken one home on the plane; we were still talking about it at work today. How about that Del's lemonade next?
