Glad we went here. It is a food truck stand with limited seating but a great lunch stop. The fish quesadilla is spicy but very delicious and my fish taco was really good. Come here for lunch or a snack.

I'm a chef and found it hard to believe a "food cart/truck" could be rated #1 on tripadvisor?? Wow, was I being judgement!! If you are looking for "to die for" food....find Garbo's....get there by noon...wait for it....savor!! They've earned their title!

We read about Garbo's and also heard from others how good it is. We LOVED IT. We tried a number of items and shared a bite of everything. It was all, so fresh and well prepared. We arrived about 12:30 and it was packed as in standing room only. We ordered and were told it would be about a half hour so we crossed the street and had Cuban coffee while we waited. There is no seating to speak of so grab a spot on the cooler or a milk creat and wait your turn. It's all worth it. The 3 people that run it are very personable, friendly and happy to make an item just the way you like it. I happened to leave my purse on the ground and left without it! We called and someone had brought it up to the counter and it was in good hands. I would recommend anyone traveling to the Keys to check out the best food on the island!

You must try this taco shack while you're in Key West. They were out of the Korean BBQ when we arrived, but the mahi-mahi and chicken were great!

We found it a little hard to believe that the top-rated "restaurant" in Key West was this little food cart, but what the heck - we gave it a try. We stopped by after 1:00 PM on a weekday, and the short menu was even shorter: no chicken, Korean beef, or shrimp. That pretty much left only fish, hot dogs, and burgers. We didn't travel all the way to Key West to have a burger, so ordered the fish tacos and fish burrito, and were told the wait would be about 30 minutes. It turned out to be a bit longer than that, actually.

We sat on a bench to eat, which worked fine for the burrito, but not so much for the tacos. Yes, the food was very good, but the overall experience was just so-so. Not sure we'd go back again, or maybe just to try something else on the menu. I can't say the fish tacos changed my life or anything.
