One of our favorite place to eat is the Metro Grill. We’ve got two here in Richmond now, in Short Pump and Libbie Place. I’m happy to be working with them to tell you about their Father’s Day promotion. Get something for Dad and something for you!
We’ve been eating at both Metro Diners since they first opened. What I like about it is that they serve classic diner food and comfort food like I wish mom used to make. And, the ingredients are super-fresh and made on site. They even chop their grilled vegetables fresh instead of getting them from a bag of frozen prepped vegetables. You’d be surprised at how many sit-down restaurants use frozen, ready-made food.
At Metro Diner, the food is great, well-made, and surprisingly affordable for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Also, the staff is always friendly and accommodating. I don’t know if that’s everywhere, but the Richmond stores really hire and train for excellence. My husband and I are on a lower-carb diet right now, and our server De’ron was nothing but helpful in making sure we picked out something delicious that fit our dietary needs. We hate making extra work or fuss, and he made us so comfortable making a special order.
While the Metro Diner has classic diner food like hamburgers, they take those classics to eleven! Want a hamburger? Try the Bold City Burger, which I had a deconstructed version of. This burger has provel cheese, caramelized onion, bacon, sausage, fried jalapeno chips, lettuce, tomato, and garlic aioli on a brioche bun. Even if you don’t like spice, get the jalepeno chips on the side and dip them in the sauce. So good.
My husband loves comfort food, so he had the pot roast, subbing out the standard side of mashed potatoes with cole slaw. I tried a bite of the roast, and it was tender and savory. Perfect for a cool evening, or even a hot night in June, as it was when we went.
When you look at a menu at Metro Diner, there are some items highlighted in green. Those are the Metro Diner specialties. I think I’ve tried most of them so far, like the fried chicken and waffles with strawberry butter, the Charleston shrimp and grits, eggs Benedict three ways, and their Huevos Rancheros.
Check their website for the location near you, and the unique offerings. Our Richmond restaurants now serve beer, Mimosas, and Bloody Marys. Great for brunch on the weekends.
The atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming to families. We were surrounded by families with little kids and never noticed. Whatever they do there, kids behave. I think it’s the pancakes. Being there even made my teenage daughter crack out a rare smile.
For Father’s Day, spoil the dad in your life by treating him to breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner at a Metro Diner. When you buy $50 in Metro Diner gift cards, you’ll get a $10 Metro Diner gift card for yourself. now through June 17, 2018.
