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 syrup, 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. The diner will feature seating for 96 guests inside and patio seating for 28 guests outside and will be open on Sunday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The Birmingham community is invited to celebrate the arrival of Metro Diner at special pre-opening charity events where all donations will benefit Grace House on Saturday, Aug. 5 and the Greater Birmingham Humane Society on Sunday, Aug. 6.
