Looking for a traditional breakfast place in the Arlington, Virginia area that offers chocolate chip pancakes with a side of chocolate milk, bacon and homefries? Metro 29 Diner is the perfect spot for just about everything and everyone! While hours usually operate between 6 AM and 1 AM, Metro 29 Diner checks off all the boxes for anyone looking for a delicious burger with fries and a peanut butter milkshake or a fresh piece of chocolate cake baked that day. Located on Lee Highway, Metro 29 Diner always has a line waiting at the door. With one of the largest menus in the area, you can guarantee that you will never leave this place hungry. A fun fact about Metro 29 Diner is that it was featured on the show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives specifically for their special french toast. We had to taste it ourselves after watching the special episode. Metro 29 Diner's french toast is made out of their homemade mouthwatering challah bread. Let me warn you, if you thought you had a favorite french toast before this, Metro 29 Diner just exceeded all expectations. Not only does it melt in your mouth, but also the portion is big enough to share!
So if you are looking for a quick bite to eat after sitting in traffic on 66 or just want to try a new breakfast spot this weekend, head out to Metro 29 Diner!
