Garbo's Grill is actually a food truck on the back of the property with an indoor bar in the center and outside tables surrounding it that are first come first served. We went on Thursday around 12:30 and only waited a couple of minutes for a table to free up. You order your food at the food truck and get... More

We had the tacos. They were really good! Besides the regular toppings they had jalapeños and mangos. Took a little while for us to find because we didn't realize they were now located at Grunts on Caroline. On the expensive side (like all of KW).

This little place is difficult to find. If you go, you'll find Garbo's is actually located behind a bar which can be confusing to say the least. I hope that in the future this place expands or finds a better location because it truly is a hidden gem. You can't go wrong with any food you get. The fish is... More

Awesome tacos. Wasn't to sure. But definitely worth finding. Had the Korean tacos and if I could get the recipe I would. Go. It's awesome.

Believe the hype. These were probably the best fish tacos I had while on the island and I had several. Cute little garden area behind Grunts. Made for an enjoyable experience.

After hearing a lot about this food truck the burritos (we tried 2 different ones) they were just average. Not any better than you'd get at Chipotle (which is average ok if you live in the southwest and there is serious burrito competition!). Also, be aware that despite the fact they 'list' hours of service these are just 'guidelines,' like... More

This is a food truck in the back patio area of a small bar with indoor outdoor seating. Grab food and eat outside or in the bar. Outside is pretty enough but we were so hot t I'm walking that we headed in the bar. The girl who tended bar was super nice and recommended more tasty spots. I had... More

We tried both the burger and the Korean beef tacos. The burger was excellent, but the tacos--amazing!! It wasn't hard to find on our map app. Very close to all the tourist sights.

If you don't know what you're looking for you might miss it as it is set behind a differently named yet cool bar. The restaurant is actually a food truck in the back. I had never had Korean style tacos like this before, and I'm not a big fan of cilantro, cabbage or sriracha, but it all works together and... More
