Following in the footsteps of its first location at mile marker 88 on U.S. Highway 1 in the Florida Keys, the highly acclaimed M.E.A.T. Eatery & Taproom is a carnivore’s dream. The brainchild of Chef George Patti and Sommelier Thomas Smith, this cutting-edge, quick-serve restaurant smokes its own meats on-site, makes its own sausage in-house and features high-quality burgers in addition to hot dogs, lobster rolls and much more.
Chef George Patti also creates many of the condiments and ingredients himself, from bacon and caraway-beer mustard to the homemade Nutella ice cream used in a selection of “adult milkshakes”. The culinary adventure continues with options like Duck and Pickled Blueberry Sausage, South Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwiches, and Cow & Pig Burgers (made with Angus beef and house-made chorizo).
Don’t be fooled by the name. M.E.A.T. also serves fresh, creative salads and other light fare, including our famous homemade hummus, tapenade and sweet and spicy pickles!
For those with more than food on their mind, the M.E.A.T. team is also passionate about serving quality craft beer. Their innovative approach includes blending traditional ingredients such as malted barley with non-traditional ingredients for added flavor and a unique twist. But that’s not all. In addition to 12 superior beers on tap, you will find a selection of seasonal and domestic bottles and cans as well as organic wines and our house-made microbrew sodas prepared without high fructose corn syrup.
Captivating, creative and completely irresistible, M.E.A.T. is an experience not to be missed. Stop by to indulge in the enticing selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or pick up a mouthwatering meal with M.E.A.T.’s convenient online ordering and grab-and-go options.
