Metro Diner Plainfield, IN

Award-Winning Menu Featuring Breakfast All Day, Dinners to go, and More

If you’re hankering for heaping portions of diner classics, look no further than Metro Diner Plainfield. Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives star Guy Fieri himself was totally won over by our Iron City Meatloaf, and the Indianapolis Monthly named that same griddle-seared Meatloaf, along with our biscuit-topped Chicken Pot Pie as “go-to” dishes in their Indy restaurant guide.

Metro Diner regulars swear by our Fried Chicken & Waffles with sweet strawberry butter, earning the dish a spot on Indy Star’s list for “Best Fried Chicken.”  In fact, you can enjoy our Fried Chicken all day – even for breakfast! So why not make it a Fried Chicken Benedict or Fried Chicken Biscuit?

Located off East Main Street at the front of the Meijer shopping center on Dan Jones Road, Metro Diner in Plainfield is minutes from the Indianapolis International Airport the perfect place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner.
