“It's rated #1 for a reason”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Being from Chicago, we love food trucks and were excited to see that Key West had one and that it was so highly rated. It's not hard to find and is right across from Peppers on Greene Street. We passed by it a few times on our way to other stops downtown and whenever we passed, there were always people there. We ended up stopping for a late lunch on our 3rd day and my husband got the Korean BBQ tacos and I got the chicken, mango and brie quesadillas. It was all delicious. The quesadillas were SO huge, it was actually hard to eat them on the little seats without all the meat falling out. They were very messy but in a good way - so delicious. But my husband's Korean BBQ tacos were so good. They had a kick to them and the taste was phenomenal. So good, in fact, that we ended up getting them again the next day. The prices are very reasonable and it was probably the best meal we had in Key West for more than half the price of most of the meals we had during our stay. And the owner/staff is very friendly and was chatting it up with everyone who stopped to eat there. The atmosphere is casual and fun. This is a must-stop spot when you're in Key West.

“Best fish tacos EVER!!”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

My wife and I Just finished our delicious lunch from Garbo's. Yes it is a cart, but do not let that fool you or steer you away! If you are looking for a sit down restaurant this is not your place. If you want incredible food at a great price, then this is your spot! I can clearly see why the Trip Advisor ratings are so high for this business. Keep up the good work team Garbo's!

The reviews were right! Great food from a street vendor type roadside stand. Very friendly owner and staff. Highly recommend the fish tacos. Good choice for a quick lunch.

“Fresh”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

My husband and I had the mahi mahi burrito at Garbo's. They were very fresh and a great value. We ate at the little table where the stand is and liked the selection of hot sauces. The service was excellent.
