Featured on Diners, Drive-In and Dives, this is a local favorite with good food, at a good price. Usually busy, and they do not take reservations. I've never had a bad meal there. From pumpkin pancakes, to homemade pot roast, you will wish you had the ability to eat more, so you can finish the huge portions.

Metro Diners in Jax are so popular, they recently opened a third location. I think it's so popular because the food is fresh cooked to order and isn't institutionalized and it seems to be made from whole foods. Or put another way, it isn't shipped in frozen on big trucks from factories that add unpronounceable chemicals to the foods. I... More

I remember I used to drive by every day coming from work, it was always full, people everywhere, so I asked a friend about this place and he told me "that place is best breakfast in town" I copied his frase and put it in the title because when I went, that's the first thing it came to my mind...

can't wait to go back, if weather is decent you can even sit outside. Servers are all very nice and the food is great. Lots of fun things to try that we have never had. My head kept turning watching all the other breakfast and lunches being served close to us !

So yummy. Waffles served with strawberry butter. Such a generous portion that my husband and I both had enough to share for lunch the next day. My husband ordered the Pittsburgh salad and you need a big appetite to finish this dish served with steak and fries on top of the salad. Wow. An eaters paradise!

Nice place, but very crowed with locals and tourists alike. Food is very good and service is fast. There are some tables outside, but the area is not particularly scenic. Wait times can be lengthy due, I suspect, to the notoriety this establishment has received from the "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" TV show a couple of years back. Well worth... More

I have been for both breakfast and lunch meals and have never been disappointed! It can be very crowded so be prepared to wait - especially on weekends. For something different, try the meatloaf & mashed potatoes or chicken & waffles!
