Metro Diner... Jacksonvile, Florida

Metro Diner is located on Hendricks Ave in Jacksonville, Florida. The name might ring a bell for those of you who watch The Food Network. Metro Diner was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with host Guy Fieri. If your lucky enough to be in driving range of this place, then why are you still reading? Go eat now! I am always skeptical of places that get a huge ovation, especially being on Food Network. It's like hearing a movie is fantastic and being let down. Metro Diner will not let you down. It usually has a line down the sidewalk, they have chairs out front. The inside isn't huge but they also seat tables outdoors. The weather is perfect this time of year to sit outdoors. The place looks like a mix between an old house and a diner. A great mix to give you a "comfortable Saturday morning breakfast feel" Inside on the blackboard are always daily specials. Try the flavored sweet tea! At our table we had an order of Eggs Benedict that came with hash-brows, a Crab-cakes Benedict that came with hash-browns, and a soup and sam combo of Tomato Basic Bisque and Chicken Salad. Everything was wonderful and lived up to every expectation. The Crab-cakes on my Benedict were amazing, and the hollandaise sauce was creamy. The hash-browns were actually amazing also! The Tomato Basil Bisque was extremely Basil-ish, which I love. The extra basil gives it the fresh flavor, and the cream makes it float over your tongue. Go give it a try for yourself and let me know what you think! I hope someone will try the CHICKEN AND WAFFLES and give me feedback. I can't wait to visit again.
