My husband and I stopped here to eat on our way up to north carolina after having seen it on diners, drive ins, and dives. I Ordered the straberry yohala which was like a cheescake stuffed french toast and hubby ate the chicken and waffles. Both were very good..not the best we've ever had but great for how busy the...

Loved it. Had breakfast here and some of the people I traveled with had the chicken and waffles for breakfast. For the price, can't beat it. The chicken was really good, great flavor. Place was really crowded, and I can understand why we had to wait for 30 minutes to get a table but it was worth the wait. I... More

Let me start by saying that I have had nothing but positive experiences at Metro Diner in the past, and their Pittsburgh sandwich is one of my favorites, however, I left disappointed for the first time today. I ordered the Pittsburgh sandwich and my friend ordered the chicken pot pie. the problem arose from the fact that my sandwich was... More

Would give this diner a 4-1/2 we were there for lunch - I had the Reuben sandwich and home made chips and it was very delicious. My husband had the meatloaf and loved it. The waitresses were very efficient and friendly. We had to wait less than 10 mins and were served very quickly. Would definitely go here again.

Best chicken and waffles I've ever had. Luckily we had a microwave and fridge in our hotel room. This meal was a bargain with half a chicken being served. The hot sauce and maple syrup mix was to die for.

Love to try out the specials on the chalkboard -- usually an excellent choice. Breakfast menu is extensive - have tried all the Benedicts as I get a different one each time. Food is always great. service too for the most part- you occasionally get a slow server - just as you do anywhere. The only downside (if thats what... More

I've eaten at both the Hendricks Ave and Roosevelt Ave locations, both excellent. If you don't want to wait in line, get there early or go alone and sit at the counter. My two favorites are the Eggs Benedict and Sandi Beaches Benedict. We've always been well sated after a meal at the Metro Diner!

My wife and I had breakfast, once again, at the Metro Diner on Hwy. 17 this past Sunday. I had the Charleston breakfast which is the top of the list on the menu. The waiter, a very nice young man, offered a taste test as he indicated the dish was a bit unusual. I declined the taste test as the... More

My wife and I have been going to restaurants in Jacksonville for some time now. Metro Diner is guaranteed to satisfy. It is good comfort food and some menu items with a twist. We have never been disappointed at three of their locations (Hendricks Ave, Roosevelt Blvd, and San Jose Blvd in Mandarin). The Roosevelt location is closer to us.... More
