Always Good Food

Been going to Metro for years. Overall good food and service. Never can recall a "bad" meal. I've only had one negative service experience from a waiter. Wish they had later hours and delivery zone was larger. It's always my go to place local.

Great food, big portions, super staff and the price is worth it. This is the place to eat at, not fast foods, it is like they have been cooing it just for you. Thank goodness we like right down the street it makes it easier to go and eat.

My daughter suggested we all stop here after shopping. We had beef Panini's and I had the shrimp point boy. We also had the chicken soup and side salads. All was above average very tasty and the service was also very nice.

The layout of the parking lot is poor at best, and with only one handicap spot, this should have been a sign. Entering a bit past the lunch hour found the floors dirty, and the place generally uninviting. Nonetheless, we needed a place to eat and conduct business, so we stayed. Service was mediocre, as was the food. How about... More

METRO BAR AND GRILL in Joliet, IL has a typical American diner menu with a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but no really strong points. For example, the seafood choices are very meager. Prices are quite reasonable, being neither high nor low for the quality and portions of the meals being served. On my trip,... More

This is my 3rd time and it's always wonderful! I love the variety of sandwiches, salads, sides, etc. The food is casual upscale, with really eclectic ingredients. The service is wonderful and courteous. I especially like that they offer a gluten free bun with any sandwich, for just a $.75 upcharge. It's so nice to enjoy a burger or the... More

We went there right after it opened for lunch on st. Patricks day. I ordered a corned beef and cabbage plate. My bf ordered a poor boy and we got saganaki as an app. The saganaki was good but small for $8 and it took them half an hour to bring it out. We then waited a good 20 minutes... More

This place is great, I've passed by it many times since moving to the area and thought I'll have to check the place out sometime but never thought much of it because it's in the corner in a strip mall and doesn't have much appeal on the outside. Boy was I wrong! When you walk in, the place is very... More

Three of us needed a place to conduct a business meeting and grab lunch, so we stopped in there last week. Parking was anything but easy. Busy lunch crowd, so we figured maybe it would be ok. Took forever for someone to take our order, but as we were engaged in conversation, it wasn't terrible, but as I write reviews... More
