They have the best burgers! The fries and onion straws were good too! With 'gourmet' condiments! Small pub, friendly service, great food, very clean. Wish were were staying around there instead of heading home...I would have liked to try one of their speciality hand made milkshakes!

We left the Keys a few weeks ago, and still I cast my thoughts back to MEAT, and its delicious burgers. I don't know what they do, but I wish they were closer to home. I'll never forget you, MEAT.

We had the lobster mac and cheese, the chorizo burger, onion straws, bistro fries, regular fries, fried chicken, and the vanilla bean shake (not all at once!). Every bit of food that came out was delicious. They take the time to make real food using real ingredients. Specially made condiments (mango chipotle ketchup) and fresh made meats - real vanilla...

You must try this hidden restaurant. The food is the best. I had the chorizo burger with lime cilantro aioli and cheddar. My wife got the lobster Mac and cheese. Both dishes were great. We've found our new favorite spot in the Keys.

I was excited to try M.E.A.T. as I had been a huge devotee of Taster's, one of the chef's earliest restaurants in the Winn Dixie shopping center in Tavernier. Every year, we catered our New Years Eve appetizers and side dishes from this gourmet delight. The food at M.E.A.T. is equally wonderful and inventive and the micro brew list is... More

Had an amazing lunch here; simple menu on the burger front but very tasty and easy to personalise. Lots of other stuff if you want it, too. Staff really friendly and the home made sauces are divine. Sea salt fries are very nice. Good value and worth a stop - best burger I've ever had!

The cheeseburger was very fresh and seasoned perfectly. My husband said the fries were the best he ever had. It is a nice small pub like restaurant. They have amazing desserts but too full to try.

We ate dinner at MEAT and thought the burgers (nancy pants and juicy lucy) were excellent. We also had the truffled fries and onion strings. Small hole in the wall type place with a good beer selection as well.
