“Best meals on wheels!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Garbo's was recommended by a local and was exactly the experience I was looking for. I explained I was only in town for the day and wanted something to tell others back home. I was given a Cayo Mahi Burrito. HUGE!!! Mahi, red cabbage, peppers, onions, habonero and mango. Grab plenty of napkins cause it gets juicy at the bottom.

The crew were excellent, making connecting conversation with all customers which always ended with "what a small world" type smiles.

“A must for your visit to Key West!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

We ate at this destination during the boat races. They were extremely busy but the food was always consistent every time. It was always awesomely delicious.The mango brie quesadilla is a must have. It's sweet and spicy. The short rib tacos are also incredibly delicious. And they have these incredible Boutique sodas. If you are planning to eat any place at all in Key West you must try this place.

“Third Times the Charm”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Twice we tried eating at Garbo's, but they are serious that they close up when they run out or our second time their fish delivery hadn't come so no shrimp tacos. We came back and I am so glad we did because my shrimp taco was heavy and my boyfriend loved his hot dog. The couple who run the grill are fantastic and amazing to talk to about all things Key West. You know you have a good thing when locals come and eat there every day. When next in Key West, we will return!

“Keep on truckin'”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

So...this place is fantastic. Not sure that you can really even call this a food truck. It's actually more of food cart that gets pulled around by a van...and has absolutely incredible food. Bacon wrapped hot dogs with mango and island sauce...from a cart? Awesome. Grilled fish tacos? Ridiculously good. And, oh...really friendly people that make the whole experience just cool. All tucked away down the street and around the corner.

It's literally as good as any restaurant you'll find on the island, bar none. Find it, it's a must taste in Key West.
