What a beautiful experience!
I had went to another location(San Marcos) about a year ago when I first moved to Jacksonville(had seen it on D,D & D) It was fast paced and the service was pleasant. The food was not as tasty as I had hoped for, seemed very bland, maybe we went at a bad time, not sure. Was not planning on returning but a friend suggested that we stop in to eat today 4/20/14 at the Jax beach location. I was hesitant but called ahead anyway to be sure they were open since it was the Easter weekend. The person who answered the phone seemed a little flippant and said their hours are as usual on a Sunday(Im sure they didn't realized that we weren't familiar with their hours of operation) I went on in anyway since my friends were excited to try the place. I was very surprised at this visit. The wait time was very short. The staff very enthusiastic and eager to help with our selections. It was crowded and busy but everyone seems really nice and happy that we were there. Our waitress(don't remember her name) was very Hospitable and welcoming, I didn't expect such Wonderful service at a busy time like it was, She was awesome! I remembered my first visit at the other location and thought how tasteless the food was but since the waitress was so good at making me feel comfortable I ordered without hesitation. The cook must have been cooking with Love because that was the best Chicken and waffles I have ever had and I have had them all over the USA, you could taste the love ! Seasoned well and the presentation was Superb! The waitress didn't forget to bring any of the condiments that went with them and she served us with a smile. I would call her a Super Waitress because she gave the ultimate service, not what I expected at a dinner. To my surprise even the manager came over to ask how was our meal! Can you imagine a busy place like that and the manager took time from his busy day to come and speak to us and ask about the service! Kudos to Metro Diner @ Jax Beach! They are doing it and doing it right! I will surely be back to that location to try other fair and definetly recomend it to all my friends, family and out of town visitors!
