This is a straight up diner- complete with bar stools and all. Do not expect fine ambiance, but you will get incredible food! Our party of six tried numerous different entrees and none disappointed. Our waitress Barbara was an absolute delight. We left so full we could hardly drive home- but we didn't want to leave the delicious food uneaten.... More

If your looking for great food that's worth the money and an awesome staff that places you first, look no further. This location on Hendricks Avenue is the original Metro Diner. From here it has spread out through out the city and across the State. However, unlike many restaurants that experience such popularity and growth, they have successfully maintained the... More

Be prepared to wait for a table. The food is worth the wait. Great homestyle dishes. Shrimp and Grits are fantastic, and the you can't go wrong with the chicken and waffles either.

If you like fried food this is your place! We tried it once and it's obvious that people love it but it's not our kind of place. Large portions of southern fried food in a very busy and loud restaurant.

We had "breakfast" for lunch. We had the American omelet and the Bissell breakfast with grits. Everything was delicious! Food came out hot and fresh. The server was on point (Chris). All in all, it was outstanding! We'll be back; I want to try the chicken and waffles.
