Unexpected place for lunch. Unique food service from a trailer with limited menu. Outdoor seating under large trees gives it a Key West feel. Has its charm and the food is good.

Ate here 3 times the week we were there, Korean and fish tacos are perfect! Get drink at Grunts and wait for your order in the very relaxing waiting area.

Stop there and had a great lunch. I had the Korean barbecue burrito. It was delicious. It's a little hard to find but will definitely stop again.

We have eaten at a lot of restaurants in key west. The competition is stiff. We had tried this place way back when when it was Grunt's and there was an actual kitchen in the courtyard. The atmosphere here when the weather is good is unmistakeably a great KW atmosphere. We tried the fish tacos and fish burrito. The portions... More

Still a favorite. Ate there twice during our October visit. The yum yum shrimp and Korean beef bbq were both delicious. Overstuffed, fresh crispy cabbage, fat beautifully seasoned shrimp and delicious sauces. The beef is sweet and flavorful. Their new location at Grunts is great. The young bartender at Grunts was an absolute delight. (Wish I had gotten her name,... More

Korean BBQ tacos were fabulous!! Lots of great food in Key West but a week later I am still craving these tacos. Hubby had the shrimp tacos and loved them also.

Great place to get away from the craziness on Duval St. Tacos were delicious. Have the jalapeños on the side unless you like serious heat.

Garbo's is nestled behind a bar called Grunts in an outdoor courtyard. Get a local beer there first and then walk out to the food truck for luscious yellowtail snapper tacos. The tacos come with tangy unique sauce, mangoes & jalapeños for the heat. Extremely casual and a highlight for us. They even have beepers to alert you when your... More

I saw Garbo's Grill featured on Tripple D earlier, and made it a "must to eat at" while I was in Key West. I got the Korean tacos and the food definitely lived up to the show with Guy and it's reviews....great food, awesome atmosphere!
