I remember when this place was good at breakfast & lunch. Their lunch is subpar at best. Breakfast is still good, but it's hard to screw that up.

Wanted something light. Had grilled cheese with broccoli cheddar soup. The soup was more like a pudding it was so thick. Quality ingredients, well prepared. It's a good place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Had the shrimp and grits on a previous visit... delish!!

The food is absolutely delicious. Down to the vegetable burrito. Staff is as friendly as can be. The place gets packed, so make sure you arrive early.

Pouring rain led us to this crowded diner with noisy weekend crowd! Good coffee with not enough time to savor when food arrived! Portions are bountiful. I had the New Orleans special shrimp and grits with andouille sausage, corn, okra and black beans in a...More

My husband and I try to have brunch here several times/month. He loves the fact that he can get a half order of something like his fav Huevos Rancheros and I love the fact that if I want lunch (like their incredibly juicy patty melt)...More

Outstanding food and service. Huge portions. We shared and still had leftovers to go. Use your GPS to find the Metro Diner. Easy to miss. This is where the locals eat. Will definitely return to the Metro on my next trip to Jacksonville.

We visited Metro Diner (Jacksonville FL), we had the corned beef hash w/poached eggs & bold city burger. We definitely are going to try the chicken & waffles on our next visit!

Great service and food was awesome... come with an empty stomach... try the pound cake French toast for an appetizer. You wont be disappointed.

! Everything from daily specials to traditional omelets are great. My favorites are Yo Halla and cream chip beef. Breakfast, lunch or comfort food you won’t be dissolved. If there are just 1 or two to your party sit at the counter for added entertainment.

YES, AS LONG AS THEY STAY OPEN. Some of them close after lunch. By far, it is the very best breakfast ever! Try the Creamed Chip Beef, on top of crispy hashbrowns vs bread, or the chicken and waffels... Or, for lunch, the... More
