Metro Diner Opens Today in West Palm Beach

Metro Diner’s first Palm Beach County location opens today at 1560 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., just in front of the Home Depot that’s east of I-95. It’s a new building that’s close to but not part of the Outlet Mall.

Metro Diner first opened in Jacksonville in 1992, and since then the chain has expanded to 11 states, been featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” TV show, and is known for diner comfort food with a twist.

Most dishes here are less than $15, and that includes breakfast (pictured above), lunch and dinner. There are daily blackboard specials and gluten-free options. It also offers beer, wine, mimosas and Bloody Marys. Menu examples include fried chicken and waffles with house-made strawberry butter and sweet/spicy sauce, Charleston shrimp & grits, huevos rancheros and more.

Join the crowd on National Mojito Day

Blackberry Sage Mojito at Galley

A mojito by any other name is…delicious. That’s what you can celebrate July 11 on National Mojito Day.

  • You can start by dipping into a local strawberry mojito with oak & cane rum at Louie Bossi’s Boca Raton restaurant. That’s $12 at 100 E. Palmetto Park Road. Also available at the Fort Lauderdale location.
  • Then move to the five specialty mojitos provided by Galley at Hilton West Palm Beach. These are $12, and I’d take one of each: Florida peach and blood orange, mojito Old-Fashioned, black sage and watermelon basil, and dragon fruit. Sounds like a big fruit salad to me, and isn’t fruit supposed to be good for you?
