On business in Jacksonville and searched for a good lunch. Found this highly rated on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Very busy so we sat at the counter. That was actually fun as the grill is right there and we visited with the friendly cooks. Food was amazing!

The original location was so popular that there are now at least seven metro diners in Jacksonville. Popular for big meals with a strong southern country focus

Haven't been to the original but I've been to the locations on Kingsley in Orange Park and on Hwy17 near San Juan. Although the food portions and noise levels were similar in both places the food tasted better in OP. The prices are reasonable given how HUGE the portions are but most dishes would easily serve two moderately hungry diners... More

Not your "typical East Coast Diner". The food was very good, with some original flavors and combinations. The fried chicken plate (suggested by staff) was HUGE, 4 pieces of chicken, mashed potatoes, veggies and bread. The turkey burger was fresh made and well prepared The service was a little slow , but worth the wait This is a small diner... More

I was curious to try the metro diner just from seeing the lines of people waiting to get a table. But I was totally not impressed with their menu or the taste of the food. Everything tastes ok, but nothing special.

Metro is always a great dining experience, regardless of the time of day, as they now serve dinner in most if not all of their locations. Servings are delicious, but I have never been able to complete a meal due to the large amount of food served. Luckily, doggie bags are provided. We usually eat there when we want to... More
