Florida based Metro Diner is still bullish on diners.

Someone’s bullish on diners. Despite the closing of Center City’s Midtown II and the near constant threat that Little Pete’s will be torn down or forced to relocate to make way for a hotel, Metro Diner out of Florida is anxious to prove the diner concept isn’t dead yet. There are 13 Metro Diners out there and ten more that have been announced. The first area location is set open in Bensalem, PA.

Metro Diner serves up diner classics with a particular connection to the South as well as Pittsburgh. The extensive menu offers shrimp and grits, fried chicken and waffle and Gram D’s Big Fish Sandwich as house specialties. There is also a salute to Primanti Bros. the Pittsburgh Sandwich is made with a pastrami or roast beef and then served with melted provolone cheese, fried egg, french fries, cole slaw, and tomato. The Pittsburgh Salad is a garden salad topped with New York strip steak, french fries, and blue cheese crumbles (oh my!).

The Bensalem Metro Diner will be located at 3630 Street Road and will open on Tuesday, September 27th. The only other Pennsylvania location announced right now is in York, PA.
