A must to eat

The food here is amazing! They make a lot of there own stuff. I had their Cherry wood Ribs and a pastrami sandwich. Was very tasty. They also make their own sausage, mango ketchup etc. Beer list is great. Place is little but perfect even for take out. Kids under 12 eat for free.

Loads of signs and certificates on the walls here boast about MEAT's best burger in USA but it wasn't that good. A good place for a quick bite but there are better places to eat in Islamorada. Very nice, friendly staff.

Amazing lamb burger , children said it was the best burger they had tasted this trip. Friendly and efficient staff. The only thing that lets it down is it's location and decor. The large deer head on the wall is offputting and in such a beautiful part of the World it is a shame to be inside in a grotty... More

Crowded diner type place. Very welcoming but one waitress/bar tender for entire place. Fried chicken just ok. Soup was delicious but served Lukewarm.

I was really impressed with this place! We stopped here for a low key Monday night dinner. I had the special (soft shell crab with sweet chilli sauce) and my daughter had the North Carolina style pulled pork. We also had kimchi deviled eggs as a appetizer. I highly recommend making them all! Everything was amazing. In addition there was... More

We each had a Nutella milkshake. They were very good, but not worth $8.95 a piece. I had a regular eight ounce sized burger and my wife had a five ounce Nancy burger. She ordered it medium well and it came out somewhere between medium rare and medium. The burgers had okay flavor, nothing special. All told, a so-so meal... More

Amazing burger The Juicy Lucy Inside Out Burger. Very cheesy greatness. The burger is just perfect the bacon and cheese in side is great and the pink burger is masterful. Also the fries are very good either truffle, duck fat or regular. The best part for the fries is the Guava Chipotle Ketchup to dunk them in. Also a large... More

Can't believe how good the food is here. Flew into Miami and drove to Key West. Stopped here to eat based on the reviews and was not disappointed. Food is not just good, it is some of the best. I recommend bringing friends who will share like I did. It allows you to try more of the menu. Can't believe... More

I am not a beer person, but this would be a great place to have one. My family of went there for dinner the week between Christmas and New Years. Crazy busy. CRAZY. The good - the fries are dusted with crack. They are insanely good. Coleslaw was perfectly dressed and flavorful. Fried chicken (picnic dinner) was half a chicken,... More

Visiting a friend in the area, we met a couple of his friends for linch there. They had the ribs, I had the southwest style burger and my friend simply had soup and sandwich. All was very good. The people were friendly and quick.
