Fries are fried in duck fat!!!!! The fries have a nice non-greasy but salted taste to them. Hand cut and thick. Onion rings are delicious with some nice seasoning on them.

This place is hard to find in a little strip mall but you won't be disappointed. Very good and reasonably priced food. Helpful and friendly staff.

My husband had the meatloaf sandwich and was very happy with his meal. Kimchee deviled eggs were very good.

Took the drive from Miami to Islamorada specifically to eat at MEAT. They did not have any wings available and the burger was average. The pork rinds were good but I would not drive all the way down there for that. Less than the hype to be honest

Ridiculously awesome. Lobster Mac and Cheese is flat out the best we have ever inhaled. The homemade condiments are amazing on the fabulous onion rings. We topped off our meals with an incredible key lime cheesecake in a jar. WOW! And the service is always in point!

Don't go here. They don't have Islamorada beer. Go to Marker 88 instead. Or City Hall cafe. Too many good places in the keys to waste your time here.

Stopped there for the first time for lunch with friends. I had a Classic Burger that was 8 oz. it came with tomato, coleslaw and cheddar cheese. It was well done. The bun has the word MEAT fire branded into it. Pretty cool. The fries were cooked in duck fat and had spices on them. I also had an orange... More
