There are several Metro Diners in Jacksonville (I hope I picked the right one) in Meridian. If they are all run and managed like this one, they're a winner! Young and engaged staff, it was a pleasure to just people-watch the waiters and kitchen staff, who worked hard and enjoyed each others' company. There was true team work in progress.... More

This is our favorite place for breakfast. The only problem is, it's a lot of other people's favorite too. We go pretty early on the weekends. Service is fast, the food is good and hot, and the coffee strong. Our favorites are the sausage and gravy and the corn beef hash.

Arrived on Sunday morning 11:30, with a mega church next door, people everywhere. Almost didn't stop; got lucky with parking. Inside was a 40 min. wait, OK must try it. Hostess said no wait at counter, lucky again, couple finished in 5 min. and we rushed for their seats; luckily nobody hurt in the rush. Great seat to see kitchen,... More

We stopped here after finding it on this site and we were very pleasantly surprised. We were so impressed that we went out of the way to go again before we left town. There were 5 of us and every dish that was ordered was very good. Portions are plenty for anyone and the service is great. The place is... More

We went here for lunch, but some of us ate breakfast. The place is really small and very crowded. We heard nothing but good things about it and how its where the locals went (we went there with locals). There were eight of us and they got two of our orders wrong. They were able to fix one but the... More

This local Jacksonville restaurant has been around a long time, but ever since Guy Fieri from Food Network did a piece on Diners Drive-ins & Dives their business has exploded. They now have 3 locations in the Jacksonville area that are open for breakfast & lunch. The menus are extensive with many unique dishes such as chicken & waffles, breakfast... More

I know it was on the DDD show but two times I have visited the one on Henderson ST and both times my food was cold. The food was good but it was reheated not well.

We had hoped to eat here last year when in the area, but we arrived after 2. They only serve breakfast and lunch. We did arrive on a Friday at noon and there appeared to be a long line ahead of us.

We hoped to eat here last year when in town but arrived after 2. This is breakfast and lunch only. Arrived at 12 noon and had a 15 min wait. The Pittsburgh Sandwich and Big Fish wrap were fabulous. Neither of us could finish the meal.
