Why choose Metro Diner?  Our big portions, bold flavors, diner classics and breakfast all day have made us a favorite of locals and travelers alike ever since we opened our doors back in 1992. Even Guy Fieri proclaimed, “Diners across the world have to take a lesson from this one” after trying our Iron City Meatloaf during his visit for an episode of “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

Located on the corner of Gilead Road and Reese Boulevard, at exit 23 from I-77, Metro Diner Huntersville is across the street from Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center and just minutes from Lake Norman. It’s the perfect place to grab a bite to eat on your way to a day of shopping at Northlake Mall or a visit to Joe Gibbs Racing, or after attending a Carolina Panthers game or a visit to the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Whether you’re in the mood for our Signature Bissel Breakfast platter or Eggs Benedict, a triple decker Metro Club sandwich and a mimosa, or juicy Fried Chicken & Waffles with a tall glass of sweet tea, Huntersville Metro Diner offers hearty portions of delicious comfort food that you can enjoy here, pick up to go, or have it delivered!

Ate at the huntersville location on Sunday for lunch and food, service and ambience were wonderful. I was impressed by how all the servers worked together to serve tables and didn’t pinpoint one server to an area/table/or blame someone for not having time to get around. They literally al pitched in doing multiple jobs no matter how big or small. This is what a great service team looks like! Thank you for a wonderful lunch and experience. :)

This is a very neat little diner in Huntersville! I had the Philly cheese steak and it was quite tasty. I also had a chance to try the chicken and waffles. Waffle was fluffy and they gave me half a chicken! Very delicious and my family and I will be back.
