Would definitely suggest this place. Hard to find but do not give up. Locals told us about the food there and did not disappoint.

Simple self-serve from an Airstream Trailer kitchen provides a reasonably priced, very tasty cheeseburger a little off the beaten path for a no-frills laidback lunch. Live music entertainment during your meal makes for a lively backdrop to a relaxing meal.

Mango hotdogs, Korean BBQ, amazing cheeseburgers. When we found ut the ownership had changed, we were concerned but don't worry. Nothing has been compromised. Highly recommend.

I tried yum yum shrimp and the mahi tacos and both were out of this world. Mix that with a beer at Grunts bar in front and some acoustic guitar music in the front yard there and it is paradise.

Great food. Be forewarned, this is a casual food-truck style meal with a limited menu, but the shortribs and shrimp tacos were excellent!.

It was hard to find and we saw it on Diner's Drive-in's and Dives, so we went and what a great burger! It was one of the best I ever had! The staff is great, and worth seeking out!

We went with four and the food was just ok. The calamari was not great. It was rubbery and the conch fritters were not cooked completely . Stick to the fish tacos as this is what you are there for. Those are great!More

Garbo's is a small outdoor food truck, but has some amazing fish and shrimp tacos. We love that you can order the shrimp tacos 1/2 and 1/2 (cayo and korean style) and the seafood is always fresh. There is a bar on site for beer/wine...More

Sorry about the photos. They were taken after some happy hour drinks at the smoking tuna. Garbo’s is fantastic. The Korean beef was spicy and delicious. The fish taco was excellent. My wife and I each had one of each. My wife doesn’t like slaw...More
