People seem to enjoy going to Shula's. This place beats Shula's with a stick. The burgers here are truly excellent. It's a small. cozy restaurant. Wonderful service. No reservations, you order at the door and sit down. We were all extremely satisfied with our food. Great beer selection. They make their own ketchup and mustard. Trust the reviews and go... More

Ate here today for lunch based off of the ratings on here. The wife and I both thought the pulled pork sandwich sounded good so we got that. the sauce on the meat was very tangy and the meat was very salty, which made the meat way too salty. the regular french fries was good but also salty which didn't...

Eric the owner definitely carved himself a niche with MEAT. Sometimes you just want something a bit different than the usual....grilled, fried , or blackened. When that happens come here and have the best burger ever. Some very good IPA's on tap, and staff that actually seems to enjoy what they're doing. Take out is available. Try MEAT and you'll... More

This place was recommended to me by a friend who used to live in Islamorada, and when I saw the reviews on TripAdvisor, I knew I had to try it. This place is really unassuming, a very casual and small place. There is only beer and wine, no liquor. We went on a Thursday night - not crowded, sat at... More

We wanted a light dinner our first night in Islamorada. Our hotel recommended M.E.A.T. The restaurant is in a small strip of stores, easy to miss, But Don't. The place is not fancy, but the food is homemade and excellent. My husband and I both had the fried chicken. It was spicy,juicy and delicious. Other diners around us had various... More

The food for me and my family was pretty good. The couple that was with us wasn't as lucky. Her burger was 100percent raw in the middle. That I could understand happening, however after taking a few bites and realizing this upon sending it back she doesn't get a new burger she just gets a half eaten burger that was... More

Great burger joint. Its a hole in the wall, but well worth the search. BEST pork rinds EVER. And I grew up near a farm where we made them from scratch, and these were way better.

The hamburger was cooked well. My brother-in-law got the pulled pork. It was too "peppery", not a good spicY. I did have to ask for a couple of things twice but staff was friendly. It was also a bit pricey for the amount you got.
