Breakfast is on us at Charlotte’s newest breakfast spot, Metro Diner!


Happy Fri-yay and Cinco de Mayo and boy do we have a special treat for you today! One lucky Smarty will win breakfast on us at Charlotte’s newest breakfast spot, the Metro Diner!

As featured on the popular Food Network show “Diners, Drive-In’s, and Dives”, Metro Diner prides itself on quality ingredients and a scratch kitchen where they make their own sauces, soups and compotes. In addition, Metro Diner hand cuts their home fries and cracks fresh eggs daily. From its Fried Chicken and Waffles topped with house-made strawberry butter and signature sweet and spicy sauce, to its Charleston Shrimp & Grits, the large portion sizes enable every guest to enjoy a delicious meal at a great value, with most dishes priced under $15.

Metro Diner serves all-day breakfast, lunch and dinner- designed to indulge the taste buds with new twists on traditional dishes made-from-scratch.

Team Smarty got to sample some of the most popular dishes and we loved every single bite! South Charlotte was in desperate need of a good breakfast spot, and Metro Diner is the perfect addition.
