The List: Five Places to Get Your Meatloaf Fix in South Florida
Meatloaf goes H.A.M. on Gary Busey!
Just when we thought no one could top Charlie Sheen's apocalyptic meltdown, singer and Apprentice contestant, Meatloaf, proved all of us wrong with a cataclysmic, F-bomb laced, rant of epic proportions on last Sunday's episode of The Apprentice. Poor Gary Busey didn't stand a chance against the enraged Meatloaf who went H.A.M. on the whacked out actor whom Meatloaf accused of stealing his art supplies that were needed for their art event challenge.
Witnessing this meaty meltdown probably brought a few questions to mind. Is Meatloaf really getting THIS upset about art supplies?. Did Mark Mc Grath really just call Meatloaf "Meat"? Is Gary Busey Michael Jackson's inner child? Why is this 63 year old man still going by the name Meatloaf?
And: Man, meatloaf sounds really good right now, I wonder where could I get some?
Though we may not have the answers to all of your burning questions, for latter, we've got you covered!
Here are five places to get your meatloaf fix...

1. Mom's Meatloaf
Betty's Soul Food & BBQ
601 Northwest 22nd Rd. Fort Lauderdale
Topped with savory brown gravy and served with a myriad of sides from mac-n-cheese to
crinkle fries, Betty's meatloaf tastes just like mom used to make.
2. Meatloaf Sliders
The Manor- Restaurant and Ultra Lounge
2345 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors
Keep it (relatively) light with this trio of meaty morsels. Perfect for those who want a taste
of home without a coma-inducing hunk of meat sloshing in their belly or for those who want a bite to eat before tearing up the dance floor.
3. Big Island Meatloaf
700 South Rosemary Avenue # 100, West Palm Beach
Are you sitting down? You may feel a little weak in the knees after reading what Kona Grill
puts in their meatloaf- andouille sausage! Not just andouille sausage but also sweet Italian
sausage.The meatloaf is served with parmesan garlic mashed potatoes, sauteed
mushrooms, and green beans with a Shoyu cream sauce. Run don't walk!
4. Mexican Meatloaf
1410 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauerdale
Cinco de Mayo is less than a month way! Is there a better way to celebrate Mexico defeating the French army than by polishing off a huge slice of meat smothered with chili
and cheddar cheese? Viva Mexico!
5. Duck Meatloaf
625 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale
Moist and delicious, Johnny V's duck meatloaf is featured on it's lunch menu. Served with
mashed potatoes and broccolini,this dish is far from a light lunch! Bring a bib!
Though none of these meatloaves will cuss you out, wrongfully shame you, and make you soil yourself quite the real Meatloaf, they are still worth checking out. Enjoy!
P.S. Busey really is the late Michael Jackson's inner child.
