For me this was the best place to eat on our entire trip. Cool little trailer next to a small bar with outdoor seating.

The tacos were AMAZING. You must try the Korean BBQ tacos. They have an unexpected heat. The outdoor atmosphere and the walk up trailer were cute, and the tacos were some of the best food in Key West. A must go!

Small menu, but what would you expect from a food truck? The food was really good and spiced just right. The Yum Yum Shrimp was my favorite. Service was super quick.

We never miss a pop in to Garbo's Grill while in Key West. The tacos are just to good, we can't resist! A limited menu of around 5-6 varieties of Tacos to choose from, but for what some might consider a small menu, they make...More

The meals are prepared in a food truck. You place your order, get a number to wait and they prepare it. The food is plentiful and fairly good. As far as Korean taste, it's quite acceptable. It was incredibly greasy, though.

This place was unbelievable! You must eat here, and it was the cutest place. Plenty of room, you don't feel crowded, and the bar is separate from the taco truck in the back. The bar has a ton of beer selections, wine, sangria, and cocktails....More

Saw this place on diners, drive-ins and dives and wanted to try it. Had the bulgoi tacos and they were amazing. If you don't like spicy ask them to leave off the hot sauce! Great food.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Does this place operate legally? Is it subject to the same inspection requirements that are imposed on Florida restaurants that are "brick & mortar" or do food trucks operate under a different set of regulations? I want to open a Food Truck soon in Key West. It is my destiny! Anybody got a vacant spot in their back yard that I can occupy?
