We had eaten here in the past, mainly for breakfast and had been generally satisfied enough to return. This time we came for lunch. Three things remained the same. (1) Long wait outside for a table (30 minutes - so don't come mid-May through mid-September unless you like sweating through your clothes. (2) High noise level (and this was a new building, but noise cancelling material was apparently not considered) and (3) high menu prices for this market (our tab before tip was almost $35!). Maybe this place simply has gotten too fru-fru or maybe the lunch items are inconsistent, but my Huevos Ranchero was horrible. (Perhaps I should add that I lived in New Mexico and ate several very good versions of this dish. Outside New Mexico, I usually only order this dish at Southwestern restaurants.) Metro Diner spent a lot of time "decorating" the dish, but this is the first time I ever ate Huevos that was non-descript, gooey and bland. Even the Jalapeno was odd - pickled, not fresh. My two sunny side up eggs were sandwiched somewhere in the gooey middle, rather than placed on top. The salsa was comletely flavorless. Instead of lightly toasted tortillas, they were cut into big triangles and oven-toasted to the point of almost-blackened and hard. My wife's chicken and waffles was better, but not outstanding. Very disappointing and pricey for only two dishes and two iced teas. We will not be back, even for breakfast.
