“Are you kidding me.......”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

This is one of the best places to eat in Key West. Really, a food cart? Yes, a food cart with wonderful staff and the best shrimp tacos I've ever had. If you have left Key West and missed this place, turn around and go back. You'll be happy you did.

“Best Fish & Shrimp Tacos in Key West!!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended by one of the guest at Alexander's Guest House and it was amazingly delicious. It's family owned and operated, very pleasant experience and quick service. Everything was fresh and we loved it! Yes we highly recommend this little place. You will not be disappointed.

“Good”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

The food was great! The one down side is that there wasn't much seating. A couple picnic tables would definitely come in handy, especially after a long day of walking/swimming.

“Still the best in Key West”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

You can get great seafood everywhere in KW, but there is nothing like Garbo's Grill. Coming from Texas for the last three years this is the #1 spot for me and my son. The Cayo Fish Taco is the best mahi mahi to be found on the island. The line starts when they open and keeps getting longer as the day goes, typical wait is 15-30 minutes around lunch time. Full menu and everything tried was great. Out of 7 days ate lunch there 5 times and it seemed like the same tourist were there everyday. For a sandwich wagon grill there is none better. Owners recognize you as repeat customers and recognize you with a heart felt HELLO. The short walk off Duval St. is well worth the time. We spent upwards of $50 dollars for a mahi mahi meal at a local restaurant and it didn't come close. Looking forward for the next visit and the next taco.

“Great Food”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here last year based on Tripadvisor reviews and it did not disappoint. Had lunch here again this year and just as good. I got the Mango Brie with fish quesadilla and my husband got Korean short rib tacos. Excellent. There is usually a wait but give it a try.
