WOW. I had heard great things about this place and it definitely lived up to the hype. The Duck Fat Fries are the BEST fries i've ever had. I am a french fry fanatic and these are definitely a favorite. The truffle fries are awesome too. I also had the Juicy Lucy burger and it was absolutely delicious. It's not... More

M.E.A.T., The Meat Eatery and Taproom, is tucked into a strip shopping center at Plaza 88, Oceanside in Islamorada. It is small, but the food is terrific, there is a great beer selection, the menu has some unique items and the staff is friendly. It's a toss-up of wanting to let people know how good they are or keeping it... More

Never underestimate the power of a great burger and fries. And these are no ordinary fries. Duck con fit fries - holy cow! We tried MEAT a few days ago during our trip because we had heard so many good things. And they are all true. Killer burger with super task roll. There's a million toppings none of which are... More

We heard so many good things about this place we had give it a try. Concept is good and well executed. You place your menu with the cashier and then they bring it to you when ready. We had the Nancy pants (regular cheeseburger), the Juicy Lucy (burger stuffed with pimento cheese and bacon) and the Cow and Pig (burger... More

I can honestly say that I have never had a burger as good as the one I had at MEAT. The fries were also amazing. They had homemade ketchup that was spectacular. Anyone in Islamorada should go to MEAT!

We were looking for something other than the usual seafood place in the area. This place was recommended to us by the manager of the resort we stayed at and I must say we were glad we went. I had the chorizo burger, my husband their house burger and my son had lobster mac and cheese which was to die... More

From the outside, you may think this is just a whole in the wall type place in a plaza. But the crowds will tell you that there must be something here. I would call this a very glorified burger joint, but their menu is more diversified. They make their own ketchup and mustard (both excellent, by the way). It's a... More

Seen the reviews here on trip advisor and so happy we went. The place is casual and small, but small does not bother me as long as the food is good. Food was amazing. The Wisconsin soup was fabulous. My husband and I shared the cow and pig burger and we left with our tummies full. We will be going... More

Me and my family ate at M.E.A.T a few days ago and the food was great! My son and wife enjoyed the burgers and me and my daughter loved the sausage and peppers! The sausage is made in house and is some of the best I have ever had. Even the ketchup and mustard is made in house with a... More

Eating burgers out is not really my thing. I much rather grill in the back yard, if I'm going to eat a burger. MEAT was recommended by a friend and I wanted to try it out. Very surprised with the quality. The burgers were really, really great, cooked just as ordered. I had the 5oz and fries and it was... More
