$12.5 for teo portions of fish tacos/shrimp tacos, adding tax and gratuity it's around $15 each, which is obviously overpriced. The fish tacos are more generous and yummy but given the environment (street food & not at main street) it's not worth it. The card...More

OMG. Wifey had read about Garbo’s but hadn’t stopped until this trip. We both got the yum yum shrimp tacos with jalapeños. I know you’re not supposed to swear on TA but you know when something is really really good, right?! Would absolutely go again....More

Cozy little bar decorated with old fishing photos. Food truck in the back serving tasty, spicy fish, shrimp and beef tacos. Heard about it from a local store owner. Not too pricy.

Cute little place with the best tacos I have had in KW! The Korean beef and shrimp tacos were perfect, amazing flavor and very tender. It's served out of a food truck, so don't expect a restaurant style set up. Order at the food truck,...More
