The food was amazing! We waited about 30 minutes on a Sunday afternoon. Everyone was very friendly. So many great choices on the menu it was hard to decide. Went with croissant French toast and the protein plate. Loved both!

Best breakfast in all of Jax's. There are several locations and they all are great. Large portions on everything they serve. Breakfast, lunch or dinner you cannot go wrong with going to the Metro

Yes there are some gluten free breads and buns available, upon request. Also understand some recipes can be made with gluten-free ingredients if requested, but they are not posted that way.
