Been to all the locations in Jacksonville great atmosphere! The wait is always crazy 25-45 everytime. If it's your first time it worth the wait. Shrimp and grits delicious and the Chicken and waffles are to kill for ! Surprisingly no killing to my knowledge. A must have experience when in Jax ! Go Jags !

We went for my Birthday breakfast, I had seen the show on "Dinner, Drive-ins, and Dives". It was great, the staff was very friendly and the food was just as good as mentioned in the show. I had the Yo Hola (stuffed french toast) and hubby had Huevous Ranchros (not sure of the spelling) and we both had left overs.... More

Diners in the traditional sense, like they have up North, are rare in Jacksonville, Florida. This is a good one. It features good, quality and generous portions of typical diner lunch fare with a very full menu of selections.Fast friendly service and if the lunchtime crowds are an indication, the place it pretty popular. No, its not like the the... More

Metro diner will not disappoint. Food is great and menu has a good selection. It is a little noisy inside since the seating is a little close and the diner is not hugh inside but you will love the food and service. Go early on weekends since Meto a Diner is so popular it fills up quick.

I have become a regular I go so often. Every thing is delicious and the wait staff is always so friendly. Portions are big so if you only want half they will do a half order and only charge you half price. It is warm a cozy the floors are a little uneven and the extension in the back has... More

Always very busy and crowded, this "diner" consistently serves up great big portions of home cooking. The servers are always there without hovering. The food orders are just right, especially if you like big meals-without sacrificing quality. Not inexpensive, but not pricey either. Nothing fancy here-just great food and service, with a smile. Not much atmosphere; but, then again, you... More

We have always enjoyed their breakfasts (and made sure we came during the week when it was less frantic). The portions are generous and the food creative. Unfortunately, it is a very noisy place (but their other place near Julington Creek is worse). Try sitting in the "annex" as it is quieter.

If you want above average food, the Metro is a good place to head. Prices are reasonable and quality is good. If you are looking for the unusual, this is the place too! Where else can you get a plate of waffles and friend chicken, on the same plate? Nice size portions, too. HERE IS THE DOWNSIDE, the place is... More
