We stopped here on our way from Key West to Miami based on trip advisor reviews. The food did not disappoint. I loved the house made chipotle ketchup and mayo. Nor did I mind the smallness of the place and having to sit at the bar because it was so busy. It's all apart of the experience. What I did... More

Stopped by on our way out of the Keys. We were a little trepid once we saw the shopping center locatoin, but holy crap were we glad we stopped. Our group of ten couldn't find a thing we didn't think was well above average, including the tomato salad. The Truffle Fries, Vanilla Shake, and every burger we tried were tremendous.... More

This place was a blast and I have the T-shirt to prove it! I'll admit I have a slightly dirty mind and was quit amused with the names of their food options! Try the Home-wrecker... It was fabulous! They have great staff and an excellent beer selection! The only down side is it's kind of small inside, but it adds... More

They make their own meat AND condiments! The food was excellent! And they shared their ketchup recipe with mango! Staff is superb! Don't miss MEAT when you're in the KEYs! Trip Advisor reviews didn't disappoint. Loved the food, tap and staff!

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
