M.E.A.T. Eatery & Tap Room

980 N. Federal Highway
Boca Raton, FL 33432
If it seems like the word "craft" gets thrown around way too much, we get it. Pretty much every menu in South Florida is offering specially crafted this and that. But what makes something truly craft? Take a seat at M.E.A.T. Eatery & Tap Room in Boca Raton and you'll find out. Here, pretty much everything is made in-house. Co-owner and executive chef George Patti ensures that his team smokes and grinds its own meats onsite, cuts and cures its own bacon, and offers house-made sausage and chorizo. Even the condiments ā€” including a mango chipotle ketchup and caraway and beer mustard ā€” are made fresh and from scratch. While it serves more than burgers, the burgers are good. So good, in fact, that they won New Times Best Burger in 2015. Try the popular Inside-Out Juicy Lucy Burger, a six-ounce pimento-cheese- and bacon-stuffed Angus patty topped with cheese, lettuce, and tomato. Or go for Patti's signature dish, his own chorizo "Patti" sandwich, a five-ounce chorizo burger topped with American cheese and a lime cilantro aioli. Pair it all with the bistro fries, here fried in duck fat for an extra level of flavor.
