Craving comfort food? Perhaps a big plate of the best homestyle food you’ve ever had? Just take a trip to 82nd Street for Metro Diner’s must-try signature menu items! We recommend our guest-favorite Fried Chicken and Waffles or our famous Iron City Meatloaf (featured by Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives!). More napkins, please!

Located off I-465, just ten minutes from downtown Indianapolis, Metro Diner on 82nd Street is the perfect place for breakfast and lunch during the week, or for brunch or dinner on the weekends! Stop in for a refuel after a day of shopping at Castleton or Fashion Mall, or before attending an Indianapolis Colts or Pacers game!

Indiana’s Hoosier hospitality is a real thing, and you can see it in-action when you are greeted by a warm welcome from the team here at Metro Diner. Guests not only enjoy our bold menu and big portions, they also like seeing their meals made in our interactive, open kitchen concept. And if they’re lucky, they may even meet Elmer, our long-time Egg Cook who makes everyone feel at-home. Whether you’re visiting for the first time or coming back for seconds, you are part of the Metro Diner family as soon as you join us for our award-winning food.

Whew!

Enjoy mimosas and Bloody Mary’s and breakfast & brunch favorites like our classic Biscuits and Gravy, Pancakes, Waffles, Omelets and Benedicts or even a Breakfast Burger piled high with hashbrowns, egg and Hollandaise. Oh yes.


Metro Diner, Best for Family Dining

From Kids Meals to Senior Favorites

Indy is also home to both the Indianapolis Zoo and the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the largest children’s museum in the world! If that’s not enough to put a smile on the little one’s faces, treat them to kid-sized Fried Chicken and Waffles, topped with sweet strawberry butter and powdered sugar from the Metro Diner Kid’s Menu. Deal sealed.

Our Fish Fry Friday special is another family-friendly meal that’s sure to please all ages, featuring beer battered, wild caught, North Atlantic cod served as a platter or sandwich along with a pile of seasoned fries and a soup or salad. Or grab a Family Meal to-go and take Metro with you! If your crew wants breakfast for dinner or dinner at breakfast, no worries! We’ve got something for everyone.
