Have only eaten breakfast here a few times. All the eggs dishes with hash browns were excellent. Had pancakes one time and they were excellent too. Considering what you get it's very inexpensive. I haven't tried the breakfast pie yet, but friends have told me they loved it. If you want to try the fried chicken and waffle, make sure... More

Tough decision what to choose when you could have breakfast or lunch. I chose breakfast and wasn't disappointed. Scrambled eggs perfectly done. Excellent hashbrowns. I couldn't resist the choice of the biscuits instead of toast. I wished the butter would have been softer to ooze out of it. Lively restaurant with counter service and tables and some outside dining.

Well, on a recent trip down to JAX to see Jersey Boys, some friends of ours escorted us over to the Metro on Hendricks for a little breakfast. This is the original joint, I was told, and has appeared on TV, like other dives we've frequented. We heard that it was good... and we were not at all disappointed. Be... More

I went to Metro diner on a recommendation from a local and was not disappointed! The hostess staff that greeted me were friendly and upbeat and I sat at the counter where I watched the cooks. They were friendly, funny and professional. The corn beef hash was delicious although after watching all of the hashbrowns come out I wish I... More

This place has a great selection of food choices from healthy and simple to elaborate and comforting! My only word of caution would be regarding the waffles which were not special and tasted the same as those you make at a continental breakfast in a 3 star hotel

I go to Metro Diner usually once a week for the great food. My favorites are the chicken and waffles and the shrimp and cheese grits. They are both delicious.
