They have recently expanded to help meat the crowds. Great BBQ. If you are a carnivore this is the place for you. Great choices. The ribs are fabulous as well as the brisket. Had the 3 meat platter and it was enough for 3 meals. Even a single meat was huge. The bean sides are great. A can't miss place.

There is literally nothing for a vegetarian here except the drinks and a few side dishes. MEAT is unabashedly a carnivore restaurant: and a great one to boot.

The heavy metal decor including Motley Crue, Slayer, Mega Death, and Guns & Roses artifacts may not appear to all demographics. But you will certainly chuckle over the side by side comparison of the haggard 51 year old 'health guru' versus the vivacious 51 year old meat loving and alcohol drinking Nigella Lawson.

Almost everything we sampled here in two meals in two days was outstanding. The meaty, fatty, smoky pork ribs covered with a slightly sweet and tangy dry rub are outstanding. Plan on splitting a half-rack of ribs for two people unless you are up for epic feast. The chicken wings are first smoked, the deep fried for a crispy texture: amazing. The fatty beef brisket was expertly cooked and tender but lacked the guilty pleasure of the greasy wings and ribs.

You'll find 5 squeeze bottles of house-made sauces plus catsup on your table. These range from a thin carolina style to richly flavored coffee/vinegar and mustard flavored sauces. It an interesting experiment to find out which one best complements your protein.

Enjoy the crunchy and tangy cole slaw, but I recommend that you upgrade to the parmesan cheese fries served in a shallow aluminum pan.

A memorably good meal in old town Lansing. Go early to avoid the crowds and before popular menu items become sold out for the day.

I have tried BBQ in Texas, Kentucky, and Michigan and MEAT is the best BBQ I've ever had. The meat with the sauces make it a top-notch restaurant.

First--Old Town is a lot more hip than most people know about. A little more traction and its clearly arrived. If you haven't been here, the entrance is a little deceiving--but you will find it.. Apparently there is always a wait--good sign. We waited a few minutes and opted for the bar. Ordered something "safe"---the Pulled pork with cole slaw sandwich. The meal came with fries. The barbequed meat was excellent. I have been to Kansas City and other places and this is better. Great taste!!!-My neighbor at the bar had ribs and brisket---and that's what I am going back for. Bartender was pleasant--with a few more smiles--he would be really good. :) If you have to--order to go!!!

I tried the Classic Pulled Pork sandwich with slaw and sweet bbq sauce. Additionally, I decided to try the Parmesan Garlic Fries. My meal left very little to be desired. All the details were met with zeel. From the toasty butter grilled bun, to the refreshingly sweet and spicy slaw, this place is delish. Best pulled pork ive ever had. My boyfriend had the Brisket with spicy blue cheese potato salad. He raved about the brisket and I can confirm, it was heavenly. The potato salad was unusual and had a fun twist with the blue cheese. The hand cut fries were amazing, but consider skipping the garlic and go for regular. I am a big garlic fan, however, it was as if someone covered my fries in raw, chopped garlic with a blanket of parmesan and that was it. Raw garlic spooned over great fries. Meat boasts large portions, great service, cool music, and a welcoming patio nestled between buildings. Great environment for family, friends and dates too. I can't wait to go back!
