We had dinner there twice, you get an very warm welcome from the staff. We asked for beer and the waiter gave us three different beers to taste. The meat was medium grilled, very tasteful, we loved the mango ketchup and the fries also tasted very good. Thank you, to the great staff.

I had the Juicy Lucy, a stuffed hamburger, and really like it. The service is good and friendly. After we got home, we found out that they make their own fried pork skins. Next time a burger and cicerones.

Have had a few burgers on the keys and so far, this is the best. Small, cosy little place and we found the service and speed good. You order at the till and they serve you and you pay back at the till. They claim to have won awards with a few of their burgers and although I'm no expert,... More

I went to this restaurant on the way back from Key west. You would not know it from the outside but it is a nice little gastro-style restaurant. Guy Ferrari went to this establishment on an episode of Diners Drive-In's and Dives. The burger selection is nice, and the hot sandwich section is even bigger. They offer daily specials such...

When I first heard about their duck fat fries I had to go. Then you find out the make their own bacon, ketchup, mayo and mustard. Then you find out they make their own sausages. Then you have your third inside-out juicy-loosie with pimento cheese and you realize you are addicted to them. Yes, they are that good. Depending on... More

The food here is very tasty. The beer selection is great. But they are ALWAYS understaffed. The staff is always pleasant but it's the system they have in place. The same guy takes your order, is answering phones, running the food, filling your drinks, etc. You actually feel bad for him! So you're left waiting a good bit for simple... More

If you like a great hamburger, you will not be disappointed with this place. The truffle fries were also outstanding. Great selection of craft beers on tap including local selections. Nothing fancy but delicious food and a cool place to visit.

As a local, I enjoy my periodic pilgrimage to M.E.A.T. Everything is made fresh, on-site. They make their own ketchup, Mayo and Mustard! I especially like the bacon & chorizo sausage. The burgers are custom blended cuts of beef. I get the Juicy Lucy, it's a pimento stuffed cheese burger with bacon and more cheese on top. The fries are... More
