I'm from New York originally, so I know diners. Metro 29 is a real diner. It has that sort of semi-train car feeling. The portions are very generous and the food is tasty. The roast beef is good and the tuna fish sandwich is really, really good. So are the soups they serve. Interestingly, they have London Broil on the menu and...it's one of the best foods they serve. I don't call this comfort food because I don't eat food to feel comforted. I'm really into delis and diners; and unlike some of the other yuppie crap around that is made to fool Gen-X and Millennials, this is a diner. Now, the service is very good. And they have nice layer cakes for dessert--the chocolate ones are really good. Look if you come to a real diner enjoy yourself--you can get fat for a day because it is pleasurable, not comforting (a true therapist's term for food). Finally, the staff open the doors to patrons--alright! This is what is supposed to be done. You come into someone's house for a meal. Finally, all good diners and delis have toothpicks and mints for you on the way out. They understand that people over the age of 50 need those picks! Great place, very good food and you can make two meals out of it; or a meal and a nosh! Go Metro 29!
