Metro Diner Orange Park

Best Breakfast, Best Brunch and Best Bang for your Buck!

If you’re hungry for savory, home-style comfort food in the Jacksonville/Orange Park area, then look no further than Metro Diner. Big portions, bold flavors, diner classics and breakfast all day are among the reasons readers of the Florida Times Union voted Metro Diner “Best Breakfast”, “Best American Restaurant”, “Best Bang for Your Buck”, “Best Brunch”, “Best Diner”, “Best Family Restaurant” and “Best Pancakes”!

Then VOID Magazine followed up, naming Metro Diner the place for the “Best Breakfast” and the “Best Diner in Jacksonville.” Jacksonville Magazine chimed in with “Best Comfort Food” and “Best Breakfast” for our Huevos Rancheros and Chicken & Waffles. Heck, even Guy Fieri threw in his vote for our griddle-seared Iron City Meatloaf during his visit for “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.”

Located on Kingsley Avenue close to the Jacksonville International Airport, St. Johns Community College and Orange Park Hospital, Metro Diner in Orange Park is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s also the ideal spot to fuel up before and after attending a Jacksonville Jaguars or Jumbo Shrimp sporting event, shopping at Orange Park Mall, catching a movie at AMC Orange Park or visiting the Ronnie Van Zant Memorial Park, Thrasher Center and Clark House.

It’s not only our big, bold comfort food that’ll bring you to Metro Diner Orange Park here in “Jax”, it’s also the warm welcome you’ll receive. Whether you’re one of our regulars like our Wednesday morning bible study group or our many local retired military guests, or you’re stopping in for the first time, you are part of the Metro Diner family as soon as you join us for our award-winning food!

The food is great, and the prices are very reasonable. I love the meat loaf dinner. The meat loafs is the best that we have ever had in any restaurant. The service is great, and the staff are friendly.

I've been here so many times to dine in and to-go, and every visit has always been amazing. My whole family pretty much all get the same thing- chicken and waffles!! 😋 I've been to other locations and I've never had a problem with this location. Chicken is always cooked perfectly (I've had issues with other locations). And of all the times I've been here, the service is always great and as quick as they can based on how busy it is...
