“Do one thing and do it well....”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

Okay, she does a couple things, but does them extremely well. The food was great and we enjoyed sitting at Peppers of Key West while eating and sampling. This is a very simple food cart with great food. We had the hot dog, fish burrito, and went back later to share the fish quesadilla.

Just beware, hours are flexible and she is only open during the day. She also only takes cash.

“Absolutely excellent food. It is a food cart albeit with some seating.”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

My iPad and I had an issue. I tried to rate and excellent with 5s and it came out a 1. So trying again.

Absolutely wonderful food. Had the fish burrito and it was killer. The fish was great, the cabbage was good, the sauce was great. I like really spicy but flavorful (not just habanero hot) so added the green lava salsa from Peppers, across the street, that was recommended. Will definitely be going back tomorrow. Just remember...it is a food cart with limited hours. She mentioned moving from a 9 to 5 schedule to an 11 to 7. I hope she does as it would be perfect both before and after the afternoon scuba dives.
