We stopped by for a late lunch, 2pm. Pretty quiet, but it's June in KW. This place has received a lot of high praise. Expectations were high and we were not disappointed. I had the Korean BBQ burrito and my wife the Yum Yum Shrimp....More

Be careful you may miss this hidden gem tucked behind Grunts Bar off of Caroline St. My husband and I decide to try 3 different menu items. We chose the Korean tacos, fish tacos, and umami burger. If you can't do spice tell them to...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.

2 is enough, they are stuffed with meat. By far the best tacos I've ever had and I hardly ever try Korean BBQ. Must try! Very cool Airstream like food truck in a beautiful courtyard and beer steps away. Also, nice bathrooms.

Great lunch stop! Vacation doesn't get much better than having deliciously prepared mahi tacos for lunch, al fresco, in Key West. The setting was as beautiful and delicious as the tacos. Fresh fresh fresh. Gorgeous slaw with mango on grilled, well seasoned fish. LOVE!

My partner and I ate at Garbo's because we have read about it online and wanted to try it out. Overall, but some of the best food on Key West. Food trucks are always inventive, and now that Garbo's has a permanent place in an...More

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?
