This place was Close to my hotel and open 24 hours and so my friends I decided to give it a try. It was a football Sunday so place was crowded but it did not take a long to get seated. This place was not clean and so I ordered my food with a bit of trepidation and selected a... More

I went in here one night for dinner and got the gyro platter. Wow, very impressed, huge amount of food, all excellent, great value. So when I went in a few nights later and ordered a tuna melt at $10.99, I was expecting a huge enormous sandwich. My hopes were dashed. The sandwich was 2 slices of typical size rye... More

The food is fine. The prices are okay. The service is erratic but generally poor and usually slow. The music can be heard for blocks. The cake, though. The cake is not a lie. It is the most amazing cake. The pieces are huge. The flavors are inspired. The texture is moist and delicious. The frosting is delectable. I would... More

Great food and diabetic friendly. Priced right. Huge menu with breakfast available all day. Great fried chicken and French fries. Not greasy. Has all the southern staples. Easy walk from several hotels or from the Peachtree center.

Just hit downtown Atlanta and was craving a good, old-fashioned Southern breakfast. The hotel doorman suggested the Metro, so we headed there for brunch. Looks like a pit stop for after the bars close. Apparently, they have karaoke. Less a cafe, and more a diner, omelettes were flat and tasteless, served with greasy toast (not butter), packaged jam or jelly,... More

First night I was there during DragonCon. I don't expect stellar service because the place was packed. The server was quick and kept my drink filled which is all I could have asked for. The next time however the server was horrible. We asked the hostess if the bar tables were open seating and she said yes. So when we... More

Decided to give the place a visit for an early morning breakfast. I decided to get French Toast and sausage with a drink. I figured there must be eggs and hash browns included, due to how pricy it was. It didn't though. I got exactly what I paid for. Two pieces of French Toast, two pieces of sausage, and a... More

Dinner at 4am or breakfast at 2pm. & the cakes are Huge!!! Do try to save room! Chocolate, coconut, tira misu, banana... More

This is a very interesting restaurant. It has karaoke and a club feel to the bottom floor, and the restaurant is on the levels further up. Great food and selection. Something for everyone. I loved the Reuben sandwich i had.
