The brisket was delicious and they offer a "fatty" option and a "lean" option. I had the lean and my fiancé had the fattier one. His was definitely more tasty and tender. The lean was good and overall, nice to have the option. The French Fry options were incredible! I ordered the fries smothered in bacon gravy and cheese -... More

You know a great barbecue joint when the only issue is how often the run out of food. The sauces are fantastic and the brisket is wonderful. Get there early!

I'm typically not a big meat eater but this place has SUCH good food. I always like getting the Meat Plate. Pulled pork, and I ask for a bun to make it a sandwich. The spicy cream corn is hands down the best side you can order. And if you like hard cider, they've got an ACE Pineapple Cider that's... More

Unless one is in Kansas City or central Texas, it's important to calibrate one's expectations downward before eating barbecue. This is, after all, the upper Midwest, where salt and pepper are considered exotic spices. This joint is one of the bright spots of Old Town, Lansing and worth a visit. We waited about 30 minutes on a Saturday afternoon for... More

Enjoyed this restaurant very much. Was with a group of 7 and we had to wait over 45 minutes for a table but the food was worth it. Had chicken wings and pickle fries for appetizer both were excellent. I am not a big fan of wings but these were the best I have had. Brisket, mac & cheese, coleslaw... More

We've been to Meat several times...so scrumptious!! Makes me glad I'm not a vegetarian! The nachos and the trailer park bruschetta are my fave...totally worth trying! Now I'm hungry haha!

The odds are great that you will wait outside the front door for a table, but once seated the menu choices are amazing. Come prepared for interesting and tasty selections. It is noisy inside the small place, but the service and food is well above average. Once we were able to walk right in without waiting!! Just Once!

They have the best wings I've ever had! :-) ribs, pulled pork etc. are also very very good! Don't forget to try the crazy fry combinations as well. Lastly order extra cornbread, it's excellent! Great service as well. If you're in the area you need to stop here!
