I had the burger with blue cheese and beer onions, and my husband had the lobster roll. Both were fantastic! The fry upgrade is well worth the money, as well!

We had so much fun eating here. The employees were so warm and friendly. The burgers were out of this world. The fries and the homemade ketchup were delicious. Don't forget desert. We had homemade ice cream. Yes, it was homemade & it was SO GOOD! Stop in!

My wife and I "popped in" to MEAT based on the review on TA, and we were not disappointed. We both got the fried chicken (Yard Bird) and being people that don't often order fried chicken when we go out to eat, we neglected a very important piece of information. Fried chicken is HOT!!! So, while I would definitely recommend it, I would also advise that you not go when you're really hungry. Otherwise you could end up like me, with third degree burns in your mouth (not really).

But, let's get to a much more important topic. Dessert. We were full from the chicken but as is our MO, we ordered the bread pudding anyway. It was DELICIOUS!

So... if you haven't figured out the game plan yet, let me lay it out for you: Walk up to the counter, order the fried chicken AND the bread pudding. EAT THE BREAD PUDDING FIRST!! Then by the time you're done, the chicken will be at the perfect temperature for consumption (and if it's not, who cares? You just had BREAD PUDDING!!!

Oh, service was really good too.

This is an easlily dismissed place while traveling throught the Floriday Keys. Inside, it's smal but very cozy. Their beer selection is outstanding. Would have stayed there all afternoon.
