Spent the evening at the Omni hotel after seeing The Dave Matthews Band in Jacksonville, FL. Upon departure we were starving and the sweet lady at the front desk at the Omni mentioned Metro Diner. We entered the restaurant around 11am on a Tuesday and it was slammed. But they had one table left and we took it. I sat next to one lady who was ordering an eggs whites and oatmeal. I looked at her with crossed eyes in confusion because this restaurant has a two sided huge menu with the most wonderful breakfast combinations of deliciousness. Directly to other side of me was a couple who had ordered Fried Chicken and Waffles. It looked absolutely delicious. So I ordered it! Why Not…we were on vacation! The meal delivered a culinary experience and has left me thinking, this may have been the best breakfast I ever had. The chicken was lightly breaded with a delicious taste and texture. The Belgium waffle came with a strawberry whipped mousse like butter that was divine! The staff and manager were more than gracious. The manager shook both our hands and personally thanked both of us when we left! A wonderful culinary experience!!! No wonder it was featured on Diner Drive - Ins and Dives. Good call GUY!!
