Description
The owner, Buddy Owen, is something of a local legend, having started his operation more than 25 years ago out of a little wagon on Duval Street. Last year, Bobby Flay and his Food Network camera crew ... Read more
paid a visit. And no wonder. Don't miss the cracked conch sandwich ($12), tiny strips of fried conch stuffed between fresh Cuban bread and shot with Key Lime mayo. Sounds simple, but no — heaven.

Ton of fun, but come early to avoid the line— and yes, there will be one! Ask for their catch of the day, and go with that! There is nothing bad to choose from, so enjoy it all. Know that a fresh catch sandwich will be $20, but worth every bite!

Don’t let the name scare you, B.O. stands for owner Buddy Owen. This cash-only love-shack near the Historic Waterfront serves up fresh fish, perfectly cooked, paired with cold beer or wine. Choose between fish-and-chips or a classic Keys fish sandwich served on Cuban bread. What’s on the board depends on what’s been caught—and don’t be afraid to ask for a local fish you don’t see on the menu. Sometimes they’ve got a secret stash of hogfish or grouper just for locals. Bobby Flay visited B.O.’s on Food Network’s FoodNation.

This place is a true experience. It is a true shack. Expect a line. Great live entertainment.

After delving into the odd bits and pieces which comprise this establishment you should come across an old truck which may be the original "wagon". The food is good; the conch chowder hit the spot for me. The atmosphere is unique which is what we love about Key West. An the roosters are colorful, enjoy ;-)

This is the kind of dive that is such a complete ramshackle pile of garbage that it actually becomes a destination in and of itself. I'd call it a shack more than a wagon, and I'd only loosely call it a shack. I can't imagine how this place stands its ground during a hurricane. But the tiny place has charm. Lots of it. Very cool location to slum it with the pros.

For a great fried grouper dinner or sandwich this place is great! Don't let the looks fool you, it is a very strange looking place when you first see it, but like many books..don't judge it by its cover!! Fun place on Friday nights too! Enjoy the conch fritters too!!
