We grabbed wings that were an amazing bbq flavor, little spicy - they were so tender, perfectly cooked! Our burgers were amazing as well - well seasoned, perfectly cooked, juicy & delicious. Fries were pretty bad-ass as well. Everyone who worked there was super friendly...& helpful. Big beer selection, including a lot of local options. Their list of national awards is insane... but completely well-deserved. A must-stop if you're in town. My one silly criticism? The place is really dark inside, even at about 4pm. Yup, I'm officially feeling old saying that, but it was true ;)More

Very good, great little place. I had the juicy Lucy with a fried egg and my son had the pulled pork....both were very good. I would go back for sure.... if you’re looking for a non seafood type of food night, try this place out.

We have heard of the place for some time, finally got a chance to stop while in Islamorada this week. Small quaint place, that you may drive past without noticing. Don't make that mistake. We had a cheese burger, a regular burger and zucchini fries,...all were great. The burger is not huge but a great size and very tasty. Service was excellent. We will be back!More

MEAT is a hidden gem loved by locals. The Florida Keys are filled with a variety of restaurants to choose from and MEAT is our favorite. Their menu has more than just delicious burgers and their Specials Board always keeps it interesting. There are a...wide variety of beers, but we like the variety of ciders. We have never been disappointed and always recommend to our friends and family to stop at MEAT while in the Keys.More

Simply put, the best burger we’ve had in a long time!! Also enjoyed the truffle fries as well as their homemade ketchup and mustard. As seen on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives but that’s not why we went. The food was delicious, hot and fresh! Victor...was a dear as well!!More

This place was amazing. We came in for a birthday dinner party of 10. Fortunately we were able to sit quickly. After sitting and talking to owner, he was very knowledgeable of his menu and very informative of his product. The food was absolutely amazing....They have perfected a good burger and fries were perfectly cooked.More
