We stopped here after recommendations from some friends. We went around lunch time, so the wait was about 20 minutes. Kinda small inside and not a lot of room to stand around. Cool interior and atmosphere. After we were seated, it took another 35 minutes to get our food. The place was packed, but our waiter kept our glasses full... More

I DID NOT EVEN GET A CHANCE TO DINE!!! I had been hearing so much about this awesome new restaurant in Old Town and just had to go and experience it! I had attended an event nearby and seen lines... The day I go to give it a try, there is a family waiting outside sitting on the cement planter... More

As others noted, some items are gone when you arrive especially if they were busy over lunch. We shared the ribs, wings, pulled pork, and brisket. All were tender and very good. There are - I think - 6 sauces at the table so you can add your own BBQ sauce. The sides were good, but the corn dish they... More

But I have only heard this, because every time I go there they are out of product. Once I even made it to a table and had the wait staffer seen that we were seated before the other table and taken our order first, I may have been able to taste the food I hear so much about. But since... More

My family of four dined here recently and we all enjoyed our meal. We had the ribs and mac & cheese, with sides of baked beans, spicy cream corn and a cornbread muffin. It was all delicious! We arrived early and didn't have any problem getting a table. The wait for food is a little long, but we knew that... More

This is an interesting restaurant that is no frills. As noted in another review, the place is tiny. We were there on a Sunday afternoon in the summer and it wasn't too busy. I can imagine the waiting outside in the cold would not be pleasant, especially this winter. The name of the place says it all. This is about... More

As expected, it is a lot of meat - specializing in bbq pork ribs and chopped pork sandwich. The establishment is a former bar and is very small for the number of people it serves each day. We went on a Saturday at 5pm and they put us on a waiting list (45 mins), but stopped taking all other customers... More

Old Town Lansing has a steadily growing foodie vibe and Meat is the perfect addition. As a Lansing resident, Meat has become our BBQ staple. The food is cooked to perfection, has great flavors, and even options for vegetarians (try the Mac n Cheese!)

My family of 5 enjoy the food here. We never leave hungry and have always left with a take home container of leftovers. Cannot wait to go there again!
