Very creative burgers/meals, but tiny tiny place

The good was truly amazing. Well thought out "concoctions" of burgers and desserts, shakes and sides! I had the lamb burger with upgraded truffle fries and a beer cheese soup. Explosive! The condiments are homemade and it was an experience on it's own to try the mustard and ketchup. Staff was... read more

We ate at MEAT on our way back to Miami after a vacation in the keys. Saw it on Urbanspoon and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The service was fantastic. We were immediately greeted at the door. You order at the counter and they bring it to you table. MEAT is a small place but... More

Looking for a bite to eat while visiting the Keys and stumbled upon MEAT. Great selection of beer and the food was outstanding! There were choices for the meat lovers as well as our vegetarian. Service was great. Be warned, the ketchup and mustard are a homemade recipe. Not your Heinz from the grocery store.

We went in search of a late lunch and we found this place on Yelp! They make most of their foods. Use good oils such as duck and truffle oils for fries. Homemade condiments. Service was fantastic! Employees clearly take pride in their establishment. Great find! Wish there were more places out there like them!

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Key West. The food and service were both great. The place was not too busy for a weekday lunch hour. We both had the Pineapple Cedar and the cowboy burger and then shared the truffle fries. The burgers were so flavorful and juicy and the buns were so soft and fresh.... More

We called before going. Told there was space but they do not take reservations. Were there within 20 minutes. The place was uncomfortably packed, dirty including bugs crawling on the wall near the kitchen. We got there just about 6:35. Good didn't get served to us until almost closing time at 9 pm. Pulled chicken was dry and tough. Tables... More

We were in the mood for burgers and ended up at MEAT based on TA reviews. I called in for landmark directions and the fellow on the phone was super friendly and helpful. We got there and ordered. I confirmed by stating twice that I wanted fries and slaw. Both burgers ordered well-done: my husbands was fine, mine was pink... More

Read about it on the internet and definitely wanted to give it a try. Burgers and their creative approach are great. Will be back when in town.

And the BISTRO FRIES WERE AWESOME TOO! A little hard to spot their sign so keep your eyes open. Excellent beer choices, too!
