Had the veggie burger in a lettuce wrap with regular fries and their homeade rootbeer. It was fantastic! Service made this place 100%!! They were extremely helpful and friendly. You can tell they take pride in their place.

Saw this place on Triple D and had to stop. Hamburgers are amazing, cheese fries even better. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Definitely must stop.

We ate here for the 2nd time this week (also in winter 2015). Good food. Had inside, outside hamburgers, onion rings and french fries with cheese. Ate it all! But we think it is a bit overpriced. Very few tables.

We were told that MEAT was a "must do" along our Florida Keys Road trip and after visiting, I would have to agree! We almost stopped on the way back but ran out of time. The Burgers are out if this world as are the duck fat fries! Calorie splurge well worth it :)

The location is pretty small but it is a cute little stop if you're craving a burger. I wouldn't agree it's the best in florida by any means . Food was good but over priced. Probably wouldn't stop again.

We have stayed across the street for 4 yrs - everyone told us we needed to try the hamburgers at M.E.A.T. - biggest surprise ever.! We're from Iowa where the beef is really good - they knocked our socks off - their hamburgers were like none other. They, also have beer on tap from Florida Keys Brewing Company - they... More

Tucked into a small strip center, once found , usually enjoyed. You place your order at the counter and are given a playing card to identify it. Orders are delivered to your table fresh and hot. Very unusual items appear on the menu .the place is small, you may have to wait.

Thank Richard F
