I have ate at Metro dozens of time. I have never had a bad experience. If you are in the mood for something sweet, I suggest Hala on the Square. It's delicious. My husband always orders eggs Benedict. They have special daily. Just remember it's a lot of food. Suggest ordering half orders.

Chicken and waffles with the strawberry butter and special sauce was amazing. The patty melt was cooked perfectly. Definitely a good spot. We understand why Guy picked it!

After seeing the TV show and knowing we were going to be in Jacksonville I checked the reviews and decided that we would have to give the Metro Diner a try. They say timing is everything and our timing was perfect. As we pulled up out front a gentleman was just getting into his car providing us with the perfect... More

Well I have been coming here since 2010 - after moving to Jacksonville, FL. Just like a lot of others here, the "Diners, Drive Ins and Drives" program on Food Network brought me to this place for the first time. Their Fried Chicken and Waffles (with the strawberry butter) is hands down their best dish. The mix that goes into... More

The breakfast pie is awesome! I was going to go with my normal breakfast I order at restaurants, pancakes or French toast, but the lady next to me had just been served the breakfast pie. So I opted to go for that and I am glad I did. It was so good!. My son loved their pancakes and husband said... More

I've had the pleasure of eating at the Metro Diner a few times and I've never had a bad meal. If you can I suggest sitting at the counter and watching the kitchen hustle around making the meals, it is amazing and entertaining. The staff is always attentive despite the fast pace, and the management takes the time to chat... More

I've been past the Metro Diner for year on Hendricks Avenue, but it's always had a line waiting outside to get a seat so I have always passed it up. Well that was a mistake on my part. Friends have always told me that it was good and I believed them, but now I know that it's BETTERR than good.... More

Metro Diner has a great variety for breakfast. Portions are large. The only thing I wish they would change is serving cold, dry toast. They serve cold butter pats for you to butter the toast yourself. Which obviously does not melt. A big hot breakfast deserves hot, buttered toast served with it.

Superb! Try it! This is a great place to eat. The local chain offers several locations around the Jacksonville area. I've tried their creative spinoffs of my breakfast favorite — Eggs Benedict. Fabulous. Check it out. This is a place worth visiting.

Saw on DDD. Knew we had to stop here on our trip! Wife had Italian Hoagie. I had the Pittsburgh Salad. Great staff!! Met the owner. Was interested that we had come from Kentucky to visit. Will definitely return if ever back in the area and highly recommend anyone to visit. There was a short wait but well worth five... More
