We stopped at Islamorada on our way to Key West. MEAT was on top of the Tripadvisor resto list and we found out this was not without a reason!
Great food (home made mustard and ketchup), excellent choice of music and same service. A real find in Islamorada, literally as you will need your satnav if you don't know the area...

Thank Harold D

Stuck in a very non-descript strip mall at Mile Marker 88 in Islamorada is a great find. The locals have known about it, but due to recent publicity it is catching a lot of tourists and other out of towners. Home brew with a good selection of popular bottle beers. Even home brewed root beer and soft drinks. Great hamburgers and fries! They make all their meat on premises and you can get sausage, lamb, pork, beef not only for a meal while there, but take home also. Try the pork and beef burger. Big screens above the bar and a very friendly staff. Very small place and its packed with a waiting line most of the time during meal hours. I will stop in again any time I am in the area!

Meat is the best food in town. It's a cute location with excellent food, beer, soda and desserts. I had the Ruben and everyone else had burgers. Onions rings were the best ever! I mean ever. So many good fresh things on the menu to choose from, you can't go wrong. Try it. Note: it's not fancy inside, just a perfect taproom.

Stopped for lunch after reading Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed with the type and quality of the food. However, the place is a little pricey and very small. Would still recommend!

This was a last stop on our way back to Miami, but boy, was it unforgettable! We started with a delicious lobster mac & cheese and fried pork rinds. Pork rinds were delicious- light and crisp, dusted with a chili powder-type seasoning. We ordered A+ craft beers and sodas with our terrific burgers. Chorizo burger was spicy and juicy, cheeseburgers were perfection. Sides include truffle fries, onion strings, or coleslaw, all of which are high quality, light and non-greasy! The prices are very reasonable and the service is great, especially given the fact that they are VERY BUSY! Small joint, so get there early or be prepared to eat or take-out if you are staying nearby. Nice to get a break from the seafood too :) Finished off with Nutella shake- we left stuffed!
