Initially, we came for dinner and left because it was an outdoor patio with limited seating. I wish we would have stayed, came back the next day for lunch. The Korean Tacos and Burger was fresh. I would have to say that it was one of the best meals we had on the Island. I wish we had eaten here... More

The Grunt Bar and Garbos Grill is a great all around atmosphere especially with live music. The bar is in the front and then a food stand is set up in the back. They serve a variety of tacos or burritos served spicy or not. We got the Korean Bulgolgi with sirracha and the fresh fish (snapper) with jalapeño both... More

Really enjoyed our dinner here. We ordered the fish taco and mango dog. Both excellent. Cooked fresh, in a cute little courtyard, with twinkly lights, and cheap beer (a novelty in Key west!)

What a great outdoor restaurant/bar is Garbo's Grill. It is actually a "truck/cart" in the backyard where the food is prepared. Nothing fancy about this place but it is typical for Key West.....a bit off the wall! The "Korean" tacos I had were delicious and I'll be sure to put this place on my list for another visit. If it...

I don't know what to tell you- it is freakin full of flavors and taste. I'm pretty sure menu was designed by great chef that has very good taste and nothing there is by accident. Portions large enough to treat it as a dinner. Very casual settings where you can get beer next door. If you are visiting Key West,... More

Stopped by this cute little place, ordered a burger and the shrimp tacos. I've had better homemade hamburgers, but those shrimp tacos... just order the shrimp tacos, you won't regret it and the beer special.

garbosgrill, Owner at Garbo's Grill, responded to this review

Mack1623, We hate to hear that someone had a bad experience eating with us.. The one thing we pride ourselves on is offering a fresh product. That is why we get our fish delivered fresh everyday, six days a week. Meaning that we never hold onto fish more than 24 hours. So we are sorry you thought the fish wasn't... More
