The burgers are off the hook. Not a huge patty, but that’s how I prefer it. My husband got the double and loved it as well. Never frozen meat. They make their own ketchup, mustard, and mayo, all of which were great. They should sell...the mustard commercially because it isn’t so mustardy. lol The potato salad wasn’t my thing, but my husband liked it. The fries were perfectly seasoned. Service was excellent. Ambience is a great classic pub. Here for three days. Going back.More

Make sure to stop by M.E.A.T - Best burgers in Islamorada. Also- make sure you visit when Victor is there. He is the best!!

The sign says #1 burger in Florida, and they didn't disappoint! That burger was juicy, tender and flavorful. Smaller portion, but just the right size for us. They also had their own twist to condiments, with a mango Chipotle ketchup and a spicy musturd. Great...selection of local beer and amazing service!More

My husband and I have ordered takeout twice and the food is fantastic every time! Their wings are to die for and honestly the best wings I've had in a very long time. Their onion rings, pork rinds, and zucchini fries are delicious as well....Try the spicy chicken sandwich and their pulled pork sandwich. Can't wait to go back!More

The dessert was a S’mores bread pudding. It was divine. Served with ice cream and whipped cream in a huge bowl. We also had the Nancy Burger which is a typical burger but beyond. First we ordered a double so had an extra patty. Then...added the homemade pickles. Wow. The fries were fresh and perfect. Servers very friendly and answer all questions.More

The Inside-Out Juicy Lucy Burger did not disappoint. It was delicious, juicy, and prepared as ordered. The award-winning wings, however, were over-cooked and dry.

Almost drove by as M.E.A.T. sits unassumingly in a plaza. Don't let outside appearances fool you. We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. One of only 2 tables at the time, but admittedly we hit between "normal" lunch and dinner hours. Drink selection was great...and served ice cold and quickly. we opted for 2 of the items featured on the Food Network and were not disappointed. The burger was cooked perfectly and every element was thoughtful and worked together to create a delicious and unique burger experience. The house made pork rinds are great starter, if that's your thing :-). We loved the wings, smoky, flavorful and a unique, building flavor profile. Do not order them expecting typical wings; that's not the intent. The owner / chef stopped out to check on us and was friendly an engaging. Quirky décor and invested staff combine with great food to make this a must stop.More

Great food and service! Happy hour and regular menu prices were very reasonable. Had hamburger, homemade chorizo and pulled pork sliders and they were all great along with homemade condiments.

We are big fans of Diners, Drive ins and Dives so couldn’t pass up the opportunity to stop at M.E.A.T. So glad we did. The hamburgers are some of the best I’ve ever had. Juicy with a lot of flavor. The smoked potato salad was...a nice change from French fries. The Juicy Lucy had a pimento cheese center and was delicious! MEAT serves craft sodas and beer. Our four kids really enjoyed their cola, birch beer and sweet teas. The root beer was the best. Just like old fashioned root beer. They also serve Islamorada Brewing Company beers that are really good. We were too full to try desserts. The guy manning the register was very friendly and helpful. MEAT was a great change from the Keys delicious seafood. Well worth the stop.More
