Metro Diner Fredericksburg

Best Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch or Dinner in town!

Stop by our restaurant on Plank Road for big portions, bold flavors, diner classics and breakfast all day. Locals recommend our Fried Chicken & Waffles –– or try our griddle-seared Iron City Meatloaf that made Guy Fieri proclaim, “Diners across the world have to take a lesson from this one!”during his visit for an episode of “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.”

Located off I-95, just 5 minutes from the University of Mary Washington and less than 10 minutes from downtown Fredericksburg, Metro Diner is a convenient spot to pick up breakfast to go before work or enjoy a sit-down meal after class. It’s also the perfect place to bring the kids on your way to nearby Fun Land – everybody needs fuel before laser tag and go-karts!

There truly is a something for everyone at Metro Diner: An Omelet with a great cup of unlimited coffee; a Triple Decker BLT and a mimosa; a Kid’s Menu Chicken & Waffle and juice; or a Classic Burger with a tall glass of sweet tea. Whatever your pleasure, Metro Diner Fredericksburg offers hearty portions of delicious comfort food that you can enjoy in our diner, as family meals to go, or delivered right to your door.

Discover Fredericksburg’s Deep History

Plus, the Best Southern Comfort Food in Town

Fredericksburg and its surrounding areas have seen hundreds of years of American history. It was the childhood home of George Washington and, during the Civil War, it was the site of many important battles and happenings.

Civil War history buffs will enjoy touring the major battlefields and cemetery at the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park, learning about the Spotsylvania African American Heritage Trail, or visiting the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center.

Don’t miss a stroll along Fredericksburg’s vibrant, 40-block National Historic District featuring hundreds of original 18th and 19th century buildings.

Other local attractions include:

  • George Washington’s Ferry Farm
  • Mary Washington’s home
  • Chatham Manor
  • Downtown/Old Town Fredericksburg
  • Fredericksburg Nationals Baseball Stadium
  • Spotsylvania Towne Center
  • Central Park Shopping Center
  • Gari Melchers Home & Studio
  • Mill Park

All that walking can work up an appetite, and the best cure for “hangry” just may be Metro Diner’s Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, Biscuits & Sausage Gravy, Classic Burgers, Chicken Salad Croissant, Philly Cheesesteak, Club Sandwich or many other downright delicious choices. Don’t forget $3.39 mimosas and Bloody Mary’s or a tall glass of sweet tea!
