If you are celiac spare yourself and do not go here! I went to one in st Augustine to be fair, but I have eaten tons of places the last 3 years I eat out a lot as we travel a lot. I am usually pretty asympotamtic too so if I get glutened I sometimes just am a little more tired than usual, however that was not the case here. I was so severely glutened it’s been over a week and I still do not feel well! I had the worst immune response I’ve ever had!!

I had a Metro Club sandwich on gf bread. They have a dedicated toaster for the bread and brought me packets of mayo so it wouldn't be cross contaminated. They were very knowledgeable and had quite a few things on their gf menu.

I love Metro Diner. They are incredibly accommodating, have a large gluten free menu, and take careful precautions. Their gluten free substitutions are very high quality (the sandwich buns are some of the best gf buns I’ve had, you can’t even tell) and many of their items are already gluten free. I’ve never gotten sick here, or at any Metro location, and the waitress here even went above and beyond to make sure I was safe and comfortable. Delicious food, fun atmosphere, and I feel great!

They have a gluten free menu upon request. Servers were very knowledgeable and were upfront about the fact that there was no fryer dedicated to GF food. They recommended substitutions for fries and tater tots because they couldn’t ensure that fries would be safe

I called and they said they had no gluten free options for some reason. Went anyway and they had a bunch of good tasting gluten free options

My mother-in-law ‘loves a diner’ and Metro is our spot - about once a month. I’ve only been diagnosed w celiac disease for 3 months so I’m still navigating it all but I was very impressed w/ Metro. They do not have ‘GF’ indicated on the menu but I’ve had multiple waitresses be very aware and helpful when I tell them ‘celiac’. I usually get an omelet and grits and GF toast. FYI - I asked and they buy Udi’s brand (from Publix) - which is actually very good GF bread.

The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. I do wish they had more child friendly GF options though. My daughter had mashed potatoes and veggies and was happy but it was a little unremarkable.
