Diners Club: Metro Diner offers a new take on comfort food

Metro Diner skips the cute and stays true to working-class roots.

Chris Sherman | 5/29/2018

Metro Diner skips the cute and stays true to working-class roots.

The diner is back. This time it’s Metro Diner, born and bred in Jacksonville and now spread to 50 lucky neighborhoods. It’s the real thing: Chicken pot pie, meatloaf, biscuits ’n’ sausage gravy and Western omelets. And prices that crack $10 by only a couple of bucks. OK, half a fried chicken is $15 for a mountain on a single plate, but few complain about the deal.
