Great burger and awesome staff

We hunted this eatery down based on reviews and were so glad we stuck to it even though it was late at night and we were short on time before they closed. Our 8-week-old baby was unhappy and so I had to keep stepping out to walk around - but the staff was INCREDIBLY helpful - didnt complain that... read more

Best burger in Florida. But surprisingly had the veggie burger and it was amazing as well. Truffle fries with their homemade ketchup

We stopped in for a late lunch. The burgers are great! They also have milk shakes. Those are good too.

Burger was fantastic, wine was good, fries done in duck fat and knowing the owner/chef cures his own bacon and creates his own sausages, the place is rightfully named. Good Job!

I didn't find anything about MEAT to be particularly spectacular. They are touted as the best burger on the Island, and I would agree there. Best burger I've ever had?? Probably not. The craft beer selection is decent, but also quite pricey. Had coleslaw instead of fries...just cabbage and vinegar. The dining and bar area is very cramped and I... More

Great burgers and fries and lots of beer options. Interesting combinations to try, we had the fries w rosemary, deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes and pork rinds-all were good. Juicy Lucy burger was delicious. Service is was different, you order your meal and then its brought to your table and server refills your drinks. I would def go back.

This is my second time at Meat Eatery. This first time was great. This time I decided to have their in and out juicy Lucy burger. FANTASTIC! Both the meat patty and the bun were superb. The burger has a touch of pimento cheese which makes super flavorful. Without a doubt, one of the best burgers I've had.

Stopped here on our way through Islamorada because of the favorable Tripadvisor reviews. We found the restaurant to be clean and nicely decorated. The girl taking the food orders was friendly and helpful explaining the menu. After placing our order, we didn't receive our food until almost 40 minutes later. To be fair, they were very busy for a Sunday... More
