Established in 1992 by the Davoli family with a single eatery in Jacksonville, Metro Diner will soon offer a warm welcome to Tamarac residents – along with indulgent comfort foods when they open their doors.
Opening July 25, this will be the second South Florida restaurant for the eatery that was once featured in an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri. Located at 5714 N. University Drive at The Shoppes on University near Planet Fitness, they are only a few miles south from their first south Florida location at The Walk in Coral Springs.
Serving all-day breakfast, lunch and dinner, the diner will indulge their taste buds with new twists on traditional dishes made-from-scratch and sip on beer, wine, mimosas and bloody Mary’s.
“Guests feel at home when they come to Metro Diner because we welcome them as if they are coming to our own house,” said Tamarac Metro Diner Managing Partner David Ellis.
“As the Tamarac community grows, we look forward to expanding our South Florida footprint within the community, where our diners become regulars.”
Metro Diner makes sure that guests don’t have to go far to discover new delicious dishes by featuring daily blackboard specials with 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 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 127 guests inside and will be open every day 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Pre-Opening Charity Events
The Tamarac community is invited to celebrate the arrival of Metro Diner at special pre-opening charity events where all donations will benefit Kiwanis Club of Tamarac on Saturday, July 22 and Tomorrow’s Rainbow, Inc. on Sunday, July 23. Guests who provide a donation will receive a sneak peek of the new eatery and enjoy Metro Diner favorites. Reservations can be made for the fundraisers from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. or 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. by calling the charity reservation line at 754-444-6605.
