Meet Meat in Old Town

Meet Meat in Old Town

In this July series of blog posts Cravings Gourmet Popcorn acknowledges events, people and businesses that positively contribute to the unique identity and experience of Old Town.

It’s great to have such a popular neighbor in Old Town.  Just two doors north from Cravings Gourmet Popcorn on Turner Street you will find the home of Meat, Southern BBQ and Carnivore Cuisine.  Meat opened up shop in Old Town in late April of 2012, and just like the way they slow roast their meats for over 18 hours to get the right flavors, this little restaurant’s popularity has gone from unknown to done just right. 

If Home Improvement star and comedian Tim Allen were talking about Meat it would surely be punctuated by Allen’s signature manly grunt and snort.  This is a very manly kind of restaurant that makes no apologies for what it is …in fact on the Meat menu there is a snarky little nod to vegetarians, posting only soft drinks and iced tea under the options for vegetarians.

In addition to the slow roasted meats that are used for all of their meat dishes and sandwiches the folks at Meat prepare all of their Southern inspired side dishes and sauces from scratch.  This is messy but delicious eating; you get that when you see rolls of paper towels on every table. Fans of Meat have learned to get there early because when the roasted meat is gone, the doors will close.  Meat has a take-out menu and a catering menu in addition to their dine-in options.  Truthfully, the best way to choose is to follow your nose, these slow roasted meats and sauces create a tantalizing aroma in Old Town. To get a better idea about the menu choices you can visit their website, or give them a little love on their Facebook page

While you are in Old Town checking out Meat be sure to pop in to Cravings for a savory starter or a sweet ending popcorn treat.
