Small place tucked away on a small side street that packs a great punch when it comes to the food. Burgers are good but the tacos rock. Shrimp, fish, etc. Fresh, lite, and delicious.

Easily the best bang for the buck food-wise anywhere near Duval St. I used to eat there 4-6 times/wk when I worked nearby. Would still do so if they delivered...

Been there on 3 different visits to Key West. Never had anything bad. It gets busy, but you usually get your food within 25-30 minutes. The Umami Burger is really good in my opinion. Fish tacos rock too, but I like the Umami.

This food truck is tucked away behind a bar called "Grunts". The food is excellent and the atmosphere is relaxing. I have never been disappointed.

Delicious tacos. The fish was so fresh, my husband loved his special hot dog as well. After one too many drinks off duval it is a bit difficult to find, however you'll be glad you did.
