We went to the Metro Diner on Hendrick's Ave. It was busy but we managed to find a table. The food was very, very tasty. The service was quite good as well. It was quite noisy but mostly due to the amount of people and the small confines. The parking lot only had space for about 10 cars, and some... More

Food was good. The service was a little lacking but they were pretty busy. I thought some of the items were over-priced but then again, they do give pretty good portions. I will definitely go back soon!! So far, the best breakfast spot in Jacksonville....

The menu does not offer enough variety of normal options. Especially for breakfast! The serving size are great if you are shooting for obese! The prices are to high. The restaurant is also very loud! Don't waste your time and money! Stay away!

Metro Diner has become the goto breakfast and lunch venue in Jacksonville. The breakfast and lunch menu have a huge selection and portions are plentiful. Weekends find lines of peple waiting to get in with thoughts of the the Waffles and Chicken" or "Stuffed French Toast" on the mind. If you go for lunch the local favorites are "Chicken Pot... More

Clean, cute diner. Food is good. Husband loves the chicken and waffles. We also love that we can order half portions of certain entrees (like the chicken and waffles). Sometimes the full portions will make you want to go home and take a nap! We go here regularly for breakfast. If you go on weekend mornings, don't be in a... More
