We went here due to their high TripAdvisor ranking and found it well deserved. Very good Street food. The umami burger is highly recommended.

We had to do some searching around because they moved from their location where Triple d segment was filled. My wife and I split the fish taco plate, one each. Lots of red cabbage, cilantro, jalapeño and nicely seasoned fish. A little pricey at 12.50 but this is good eating....

What else do you need to know? I ordered extra sauce for the tacos based upon some reviews. It was delicious so I used it though my best friend did not. We got jalapeños on ours which gave it perfect heat. Paired with the hogfish amber ale on tap that day and it was sublime. You dine al fresco. Get... More

Outstanding fish burrito and Korean BBQ tacos. Fantastic. Probably the best tacos that we've ever had. The Fresh Burrito while well stuffed with light and refreshing and very flavorful. The Korean BBQ taco has so much flavor and not overly fiery.

My husband and I had heard the food here was good. We kind of stumbled upon it while we were out walking one evening and gave it a try based on other reviews. There are only a few items on the menu but all of them seemed like they would be good. You order toward the back of the lot... More

Best fish tacos on Key West. Perfect flavor and value. Patio sitting, bar next door to wet your whistle. Two healthy tacos, perfect lunch.
