The Meat Up

Steve Riney, owner of The Meat Up, at 529 Bolivar St., has been dreaming of the restaurant's concept for 15 years. 

Steve Riney has been in the restaurant business for 25 years, managing fine dining establishments across North Texas. As of last week, those experiences are informing his newest adventure in the food world — his own restaurant.

Unlike the restaurants Riney came up in, The Meat Up, his new downtown eatery, is as casual as they come. With local beer, burgers and tacos topping the menu, Riney sees it as a spot where customers can play a game of cornhole on the lawn or meet up with friends for a beer after a long day.
