Top 6 Food Trucks in Key West
Key West isn’t known for food truck culture, but that’s also due to the fact that we have strict codes on mobile vendor licenses. Our pickings are slim.. but fortunately they’re ridiculously delicious.
In no particular order here are the 6 best food trucks in Key West:

Arguably Key West’s most famous food truck, Garbo’s is on its way to becoming a classic. Featured on Guy Fieri’s show ‘Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives’, their new and improved Air Stream is whipping up Mahi-Mahi fish tacos (which you can indulge on our Historic Seaport Tour), Umami burgers and Korean beef tacos that had even Guy’s head spinning.
Not sure where to go first? Try Garbo’s and 4 other local’s favorite’s places on the Historic Seaport Tour!
Are you a health nut that still likes to take one way trips to Flavortown? Then Taco Grilla is your ticket to ride! The Van Schoor’s holistic and experimental take on fast food will have your tastebuds trippin’ off the Richter scale. Love and marinades make the magic of their homemade grill grub – it takes them 2 days for their coconut yogurt “sour cream” to culture, for example, and they only use organic produce. Try the salz-q steak, free range mojo chicken, or even their handcrafted vegan sausage!
Floridita Food Truck
Another hotel staple is Havana Cabana Hotel’s Floridita Food Truck. Tucked beside their famous free-form pool, this truck serves hot, fresh, vibrant Cuban-Caribbean food for hotel guests and walk-ups alike. They set the scene nicely, their seating area is both shaded and colorfully decorated (check out those floor mermaid murals)…Want to take your food poolside? No one’s stopping you!
The Blind Pig
Head over to the Gates Hotel for The Blind Pig, a swanky food truck experience. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, menu items like ceviche, pimento grilled cheese bites and pulled pork pretzel bread sandwiches pair perfectly with a dip in the pool. Top it off with a rum cocktail and make a day out of it.

A small but seriously local menu makes Pescado truly feel “hometown”. Spiny lobster rolls and Royal Red shrimp combined with refreshing tamarind tea is a lunch that any Key West native would be proud of. Plan it right, however, this food truck is only open from 11-2 pm.
Leila’s Latin Food

Nicaraguan fried tacos, carne asada sandwiches, and freshly made drinks like Peruvian Chicha and Puerto Rican Horchata are served with a smile at Leila’s. Their affordably priced menu and daily specials are what makes this food truck stand out.
