There are tons of great small dives in the Florida Keys, this is a MUST! We go every year, and every year we are floored by how delicious it is. Our new favorite is the Banana Bread Ale and ice cream shake. So good!

Locals in the Keys have read about the Burger awards, the Wing awards, and about Guy Fieri highlighting MEAT on his trip to the Keys. I was scared that there would be lines across the street after that show, but the folks at MEAT have managed their success without taking away from the experience we guests receive. I regularly bring... More

Finally in the mood for a good burger while vacationing in the keys and we're SO glad we were! Have heard a lot of great stories about this place and can say they're all true. Virtually everything is house-made including many of the specialty meats, the condiments and the sides. The inside out juicy Lucy burger has won awards and... More

He place is truly a food experience: great burgers and side dishes; strongly recommended if you like MEAT. Service was also nice and attentive. A good place for a casual dinner out and experience truly valuable burgers and beers.

We went for dinner because we love burgers and we loved their burgers but, this isn't a cheap burger place.

Great meat! (and fish). My husband and kids had pulled pork and an amazing burger. I had the Mahi-Mahi Rubin. We had wings and pork rinds to start. Everything was amazing! Great craft beer selection and staff very friendly.

Checking off another great dining experience at a restaurant featured on the show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The wings were not like any I've had before...another patron described them as a cross between your typical bar food wings and the best fall off the bone ribs...very tasty. The sauce on the wings could make an old shoe edible.
