The Metro is one of the places I take out of town guests. Especially for Breakfast. The Carl Jr sandwich and the big bissel breakfast are the best. Family likes the chicken and waffles.

Local favorite for chicken and waffles. Outside seating for warmer days. Close to the beach and shopping while you wait for a table.
