Pork rinds are amazing! Juicy Lucy burger, unbelievably good. Both times we've been, they are out of most of the beer, strange. Loved that they offered a lettuce wrap instead of a bun as I'm gluten sensitive. Unfortunately, it's not a wrap and requires a fork and knife. That said, still enjoyed my chicken "sandwich" with tapenade added.

After a week of seafood, was craving a burger. Found MEAT on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. They make everything in-house - bacon, chorizo, ketchup, mustard, pork rinds. Had the Juicy Lucy with the truffle fries which were delicious dipped in the homemade mustard and mayonnaise combined. Husband had the special Cowboy Burger and loved it with the perfect... More

This little bar with a few tables was a great find as they served up some of the tastiest wings I have ever tasted. But it got better still... their fried chicken was spectacularly good. The burgers were tasty and the fries nice and crisp and the coleslaw was interesting. There's a selection of craft beers on offer and the... More

Very different for the Keys...but what a breath of fresh air. Great food, but more than seafood. Good beer, great staff and very good food. Nice atmosphere. Location is almost camoflauged in a strip mall but worth the look.

This is only a small place but its big on taste. You seat yourself and order at the bar. They have a large beer menu and even have adult milk shakes. We had a Juicy Lucy inside out burger which had bacon and cheese inside the burger and was real tasty. Like i said its only a small place but... More

On our trip through the keys we stopped at MEAT which was one of Guy Fieri's recommendations. Bot ht wife and I had burgers and shared the skins, had a few beers and on the road again. The restaurant isnt real big so if you go at lunchtime there may be a wait,but is well worth it.

We went in on election night and had some great fried chicken and sweet potato fries. The milk shake was off the charts! Super pulled pork sandwich and bottle of local brew. We think the owner took care of us and was very friendly. Not fancy digs but clean and nice

My wife and I had lunch here based off of some friends recommendation. It was great, the burger was awesome and had some smoked chicken wings that were spectacular. Great craft beer selection and the employees were very friendly and accommodating.
