Alright, so the words "Guy Fieri Ate Here" are absolutely nothing I look for in a restaurant. In fact, the mere mention of the Guy makes me shake my head and say "um, no". However, Islamorada is not a big place and food, other than seafood is hard to come by. So, to MEAT we went. There were four of... More

This place is a little hard to find even though it is on route 1. It is in a small strip mall and is on the right if you are driving northbound. As a matter of fact, our GPS steered us to the back of the place. Anyway, the search was worth it. I had the lobster mac and cheese... More

My partner and I visited M.E.A.T. while we were driving down through the Keys, and overall, this restaurant is certainly worth a stop over – and come hungry! I read about this restaurant online on a list of places to eat in the Florida Keys, and if you drive down, you're bound to pass it because there aren't that many... More

Got the pork Schnitzel sandwich special. It came on a sausage bun and there was no way to pick it up. Complained to server but he didn't appear to care.

It was very delicious but the home made bacon was out of this world!!! We enjoyed it so much we stopped back on our way home. Not only was... More

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Key West. Have to admit we stopped because we saw the place on diners drive ins and dives. MEAT definitely delivered. Lobster roll was excellent and the BBQ wings were so good we want to go back for more.

So delicious! I ordered the Country Pulled Pork Sandwich and it was love at first bite. The sandwich consisted of 6 ounces of moist and smoky pulled pork topped with Provolone Cheese, Braised Broccoli Rabe and Banana Peppers. It was delicious! They serve all their burgers and sandwiches with a generous portion of Duck Fat Fried French Fries which were... More
