They have a separate gluten free menu with a number of options. Waitress was knowledgeable. Shared toaster for gf and non gf bread so be aware of cross contamination possibilities.

This place has one of the best gluten free menus for breakfast and lunch that I’ve ever seen! There were so many delicious options that I had a hard time deciding what to eat. I finally decided on a chicken salad sandwich on gluten free bread with a side of cheesy grits. Loved it! I can’t wait to go back here again.

Celiac boyfriend Order breakfast items for dinner. Taste was good but 2 hours later he ended up with debilitating stomach pains vomiting and diarrhea. Not sure if it was cross contamination or food poisoning or both. We have been here before with no trouble this time was just bad on our part for not triple checking how they prepared our food.

Had a great breakfast with gluten free toast from a dedicated toaster. Their gluten free menu is easily found on the website.

Spoke with waiter. He assured me they take measures for celiac (severe allergies-his words). I had eggs, grits, sausage and GF toasts. They use a separate toaster. Food was good and I’m glad to find GF places for breakfast.

The waitress and the manager were super helpful. The menu is smaller currently due to COVID-19 but still plenty of options and gf bread. I enjoyed a Metro patty melt on gf toast with hash browns. Will definitely go back.

Really good!

My husband loved what he ate as well, he is not gluten free and ate items I could not. Looked good for sure.

Staff was very knowledgeable. Big GF menu. GF bread was very good. Make sure to tell them it’s an allergy so they take extra precautions and don’t toast the bread on the grill. Had a breakfast sandwich that had tons of meat! Very good and not super expensive! Definitely will be back!

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

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.
