“You will not be disappointed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

On our last day in Key West we finally made it to Garbo's Grill (recommended by our hotel concierge). What amazing food! We were not aware that it was a food cart before arriving, but the friendly owners and the inviting benches under shade trees had us sure that we'd made a good decision. The food was amazing! I wanted to try the Jerk Chicken, but it was late in the day and they were out. I "settled" for a burger with bacon jam and arugula - YUMMY! Better yet were the Korean BBQ tacos my husband ordered. Truly wonderful food and a great price. Off the beaten path (which made it all the more fun)!

“Amazing...with some KW vibe.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We went twice our last week there (10/5 through 10/12/13.) Love it! Korean short rib burrito, jerk chicken quesadilla, fish taco.... WOW! Everything was fresh and tasty. We were a little concerned about sitting out in the hot weather, but the shaded seating area and the fans made it very enjoyable. You may be sitting on a cooler, but hey, it's KW! The owners are very personable and friendly and they make it clear that they appreciate their customers. We will be back!

“So glad we waited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Last 2 trips down to Key West we didn't make it to Garbos. I am so glad we did this time. Made sure we were first on line and grabbed 2 short rib tacos. Holy moly were they awesome. I can see why they sell out quickly.

“Awesome little food cart!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

While on a family cruise trip, we stopped off at Key West. After spending most of our vacation eating extravagant cruise food, stopping for a burrito at Garbos was exactly what we needed. We unanimously agreed that it was the best meal we had all week! The super fresh ingredients perfectly complimented each other! If you find yourself in Key West, you must eat here!

“Great food with a smile!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We stopped by Garbo's for our fish taco fix on our recent trip to Key West. This little food cart brings in the business and I totally understand why! They are friendly, accommodating and offer service with a smile! The owners work hard to make sure you enjoy what they offer, often checking in with the crowd as they enjoy. The little shaded waiting area offers some seating or you can take out if you prefer.

The fish taco's are fresh and delicious... This has become a regular stop for us when we visit Key West!
