To be fair, Proper Meats’ menu includes some vegan and vegetarian choices, such as the Faux Burger, made with an Impossible Burger patty, and the PETA pita containing hummus, cucumber, lettuce, tomato, onion, and ranch.
But the meat of the menu, if you will, includes a generous selection of “Knuckle Busters” — overstuffed sandwiches on brioche buns with names such as Ybor Hot Byrd, Sticky Pig, Grrrrilla Cheese, Tex Reubenstein, and, simply, The Beef.
Knuckle Busters come with one side dish; diners can choose from southern slaw, barbecue beans, French fries, or two varieties of mac and cheese.
“Wanna Smashburgers” make up another portion of the menu, with customers able to choose from seven burger varieties. A selection of salads, some with meat and some without, is also on offer, and the extensive appetizer menu features Voodoo Dip (made with Florida gator meat), Disco Duck Nachos, Cowboy Quesadillas, kimchi fries, and Hot Rods — pretzels with beer cheese and spiced mustard.
