Not worth talking about

Had the pot pie. Was just ok. Way to pricey and way overrated. Regular diner with high prices. Great Service! Fast and prompt.

I think my title accurately describes this place: "Great food, decent prices, long wait" I came with friends on a Saturday morning and this place was packed! I mean 1 hour+ wait time! Once we got seated we sampled a few things including the Monte Cristo and Chicken and Waffles and they were both fantastic. The prices weren't bad and... More

This is a place we definitely hit when we are in the Jacksonville area! LOVE Metro Diner! Normally, there is wait, but 20-25 minutes is totally worth it! Once in, the service is fast and food comes out quickly. Our favs are the Yo Halla and Bissell Breakfast. I don't think you can go wrong with anything here. Everything looks... More

Metro diner is a very popular Jacksonville area breakfast spot. I they now have 5 locations, but I've only eaten at the Jacksonville Beach restaurant and the original location near San Marco. The food is good, but not exceptional. The service was excellent and very friendly. The original location has charm and atmosphere, but the other spots are a bit... More

I was watching diners, drive ins, and dives and found this gem. I ordered biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon and my friend ordered pancakes and bacon. Everything was delicious. So delicious that I told me family that they needed to take a trip to Jacksonville for their breakfast...and find random things to do in the area lol. Any time I... More

I live for the pound cake french toast and chicken. I eat pretty health meals the majority of the time but once a month I treat myself to plate full of delicious calories at Metro. Now let me say this, you can definitely get a healthy breakfast but they some exceptional calorie filled delights that I just can't resist.

The Metro is superlative in terms of comfort food. The Service is prompt, courteous and friendly. The Food at Metro is one of these style menus that leaves you full, satisfied and ready for a full day or evening. High marks from this Foodie.

Sorry, but something fresh is always a great addition. Even the peanut butter. And jelly is fried! Honestly!
