How do I find a “meat and three” near me? We’re glad you asked, because we’re hard at work to help you find meat-and-three restaurants, diners and cafes across the U.S.

The state links above list places that serve great food in one or more of these categories: American, Bar or Pub, Cajun, Caribbean, Creole, Fine Dining, Hot Chicken, Soul and Southern. These joints are typically “mom and pop” establishments that serve a “meat and three sides” in some form for lunch and/or dinner. The “meat and two” is included in our listings.
