What to Order from Metro Diner if You Have Dietary Restrictions

There’s a restaurant that’s not too far from us that we kept passing and always forgot the name of. One night, Nikki took a picture of it so that we’d remember it. Nikki Googled it and learned that they had a gluten-free menu. Score!

A few weeks later, our dad invited us to dinner and asked if I needed “a new place for my vlog” (yes, he said vlog and not blog). We told him about Metro Diner and decided to try it out.

My dad & I had regular menus & Nikki had a gluten-free menu. Our waiter was really nice & very helpful in answering Nikki’s questions.

Nikki chose the American Burger (minus cheese, tomato, & mayo) and salad. Nikki came prepared with her own salad dressing with her.

I was scanning the menu and saw pulled pork. My decision was made. While waiting on the waiter, I looked more closely at the description. The Pulled Pork Mac Stack is a half-pound of BBQ over Mac and Cheese and cornbread waffle with maple butter. Yes, you read that right.

I was not prepared for the amount of food I received.

 

This made THREE meals. THREE.

My dad ordered chicken tenders and fries, which he enjoyed.

Sometimes, you just need chicken tenders.

We all really enjoyed our food and the service was really great.

Night Two

 

We liked it so much that we went again the next night. Our dad told his mom about it and she wanted to try it.

 

Nikki decided to try the Metro Club, minus the cheese, mayo, and tomatoes. Not only did she bring her own dressing, but she also brought her own mayo. She always tries to be prepared!

So much food that it was a second meal

 

Our dad went with the Monte Cristo since he hadn’t it in a long time. He liked them, but it wasn’t his favorite.

I decided to go with fish and chips. I liked it.

Nana ordered the braised beef tips, fried zucchini, salad, and a baguette. She really liked her food.

Third Visit

Nikki & I were telling our mom about Metro Dinner and she really wanted to try it, so we ordered takeout. If you’re keeping track, that’s three times in one week that Nikki & I had food from Metro Diner.

Our mom ordered the Chicken Pot Pie. She’s a big fan of this dish and really liked Metro Diner’s version.

I wasn’t super hungry, so I decided to try Three Cheese Grilled Cheese. Keeping with the cheese theme, I also had Mac & Cheese.

My mom never had chicken and waffles before and decided to try that. She liked it. This also came with strawberry butter.
