Where Garbo's Lobster ATX Started
In 2013 Heidi Garbo moved to Austin, Texas from the Florida Keys after she sold her hugely successful food trailer "Garbo's Grill" known for the best fish tacos in Key West. Since fish tacos were a common option in most restaurants in Austin, Heidi quickly realized that a staple of her upbringing – the lobster roll – was virtually unknown to native Texans and beloved by all from the East Coast. Heidi quickly bought a truck, revamped it with her family, and opened the first Garbo's Fresh Maine Lobster Truck in 2013.
Garbos' now has a fleet of one lobster trailer that is located at Meanwhile Brewing in South Austin and two food trucks that are available for catering and private events. They can also be found in and around the Austin area at farmers' markets and local neighborhoods.
