“Great homestyle cooking!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

The food at Metro Diner is fantastic!! It's comfort food, old favorites done right and in huge-seriously huge- portions! Come hungry. The staff is always bright and cheerful and they hustle! I highly recommend Metro Diner and frequently bring out of town visitors here.

Metro Diner has great food and a lot of it. Breakfast is a feast for the eyes and tastebuds. Lunch whether hot or cold always is delicious and service is fast , friendly and helpful. Metro Diner is where the locals eat and often.

“Best breakfast and lunch in Jax”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Food is always fresh, waitstaff is fun and courteous and now there are more locations! Whether its the Yo Hala on the Square or the chicken and waffles at breakfast, or the chicken pot pie or Vortex burger at lunch, you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

“Good food”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Love the chicken and waffles! Food is good and not too expensive. Reminds me of my grandma's restaurant. You get plenty for a good price. Stays very busy and is loud , didn't bother me though. Service was quick and efficient.

The food is awesome but the location is cramped and needs renovations. There is no parking which is a hassle.
