Pleasant and efficient. - My wife said the grilled cheese with tomato and bacon was good and her fruit cup was the "best she ever... More

We've been going to Metro for thirty years. We were the first to recommend it to DDD. With all the new Metros going in everywhere, they have definitely upped the ante on pricing. You seem to be able to get either a little for 3.99-5.99, or a LOT for 10.99+. It would be good to have something besides the chicken... More

We visited Metro Diner for the first time a couple of years ago when we first visited Jacksonville and loved it. We ate breakfast here twice during our visit. The service was outstanding. The food was fantastic. One of my favorite places to eat!

We eat here often and have always loved the food and service. This time was different the eggs where runny and the hash browns were burnt. Waitress never came to the table till well after we were almost done eating. Maybe it was a off day. Because of the great service before will try again.

Large portions and good food made the old fashioned way. The only complaint is that they close too early, at 8 pm.

...fell short in a couple of places. Hash browns were plentiful but cold. Chipped beef was a little skimpy on the beef and lacked salt. It did not look like real dried cjipped beef either. Unless maybe they just didn't fry it first like you are supposed to. One of my eggs was over-cooked but edible. The Shrimp n Grits... More

Love the food! Great atmosphere! Biscuits and gravy are a must! My husband loves the breakfast pizza. I want to try lunch but always go for breakfast food. You will wait a bit though on the weekends, especially Sunday morning!
