Service and staff were friendly and attentive. It is just that the food was mostly tasteless. On the melt, the cheese was a partially melted "single". Chile tasted canned, certainly not homemade. It is like they took the easy way out for fast food. Such a nice facility and staff could make a reputation if they worked on the quality of the menu.

This is a very attractive restaurant. The staff is friendly but not attentive. Clearly they were only using half of their space which was convenient for the servers, but made the visit unappealing when sitting so close to families with small screaming children.

Unfortunately, the food was mostly reheated frozen food in very large quantities. The calamari consisted of large heavily-breaded pieces. The marinara was served by the cup full and tasted canned.

The moussaka was shockingly bad. A positive is that the salads were fresh. Otherwise, there was just nothing to recommend this diner for a return trip.

I like metro Cafe Diner. It's convenient, they are always nice and friendly. The ambiance is nice and friendly. The menu choices are extensive. You can get breakfast all day if you like, they have diner type foods, they have Greek Cuisine if you like, sandwiches, burgers, grilled fish, salads, black beans and rice, omelets, they menu and choices are vast. Every one there is always, always friendly and nice. That is important. Sometimes the owners jump and and work and serve themselves. They always have cakes, cakes cakes! on display to order, but i have never ordered desert. For local, casual cuisine, Metro Diner cafe is my first choice

Greek food HEAVEN! The pita was perfectly tender and warmed JUST right, the hummus was smooth as silk and seasoned by a pro. The ribs were soft as butter, and the gyro would have made a Greek Prince proud! I am finicky about my food and there wasn't a single thing wrong with ANY of the food. AMAZING place!
