It all started at the mile marker 88 in the Florida Keys: M.E.A.T. Eatery and Taproom was built to give a whole new twist to the typical burger joint. M.E.A.T. Was named the number one burger place in Florida, and also makes their bacon, sausage, ice cream, ketchup and mustard.
Arriving in Boca more than a year ago, the M.E.A.T. team takes all the same pride and joy in their work as they do in their location in the Keys.
“Its not your typical restaurant,” said Max Johnson, senior. “When you arrive, you order from the counter and they bring you your food to your table. It creates a more relaxed feel.”
The dining area of the restaurant is very different. There are huge booths with comfy colorful pillows. It makes you feel like you are right at home, with your mothers cooking.
“Many people don’t know about them because it is inside of a business building, kind of tucked away hard to see,” said Mike Visnick, senior. “It is something you have to go and find, it will be well worth it.”
M.E.A.T does not only offer burgers. They also sell wings, soups, salads, breakfast sandwiches, corn on the cob and their famous duck fat fried french fries.
The staff is small and extremely friendly and there to make sure you enjoy yourself.
“It is the perfect place to go out to dinner with your friends and just spend house laughing and enjoying yourself,” said Madeline Fryburg, senior. “[It is a] hidden gem in Boca.”
The next time someone is craving a burger or a milkshake, or just want to try something new, visit M.E.A.T. Eatery and Taproom located at 980 Federal Highway. There is always something new brewing at M.E.A.T.
