It was a bit difficult to find Garbo's as the Airstream trailer where the food is prepared sits well back from the street. We shared tasty burritos and chased them with beers purchased from the bar that adjoins the shared dining courtyard. The location is well off the noisy Duval Street, so is a nice break from the mayhem.

I saw the reviews on TripAdvisor for this place so I added it to our list. The food did not disappoint! I had the fish tacos and the portion was huge! The fish was fresh. My boyfriend had the shrimp tacos and said they were the best he ever had. It was a little pricier for most taco places but... More

This was our best choice for soft tacos! Amazing! The shrimp ones were the most tasty! Did not try other choices but others seated around us seemed very pleased...Nice shady courtyard to sit in after you get your food from the silver trailer and the cosy bar attached to the courtyard will serve you a little refreshment to go with...

We stopped in for lunch and had the Korean BBQ tacos. They were so delicious. Counting down the days until we are back in a few months!

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

Only reason for 4 instead of 5 is because we were led to believe by some locals that the fish tacos here were some of the best you can find but we were disappointed in them. Great flavor in the fish itself but not much else. Might just be personal preference because I like a nice sauce on my fish... 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.

Thank Mark D
