Metro 29 Diner

When two families came together to open a New York style diner restaurant in Arlington, Virginia, the result was a delicious success. Metro 29 began serving its immense portions of American favorites in 1995. The idea was to create a menu that offered something for everyone, and an ambiance that welcomed families and couples, friends and colleagues. The mission continues to focus on providing quality food, prompt service and a warm, easy going dining experience.

The on-site bakery was also a crucial component. Patrons lured by the freshly prepared goods are greeted by a glass case filled with layered cakes, cream pies, cheesecakes and 18 different kinds of mouthwatering pastries. Saving room for dessert is a must. Outstanding dishes in a comfortable atmosphere have grown Metro 29’s reputation beyond the Washington metro area. In 2010, Guy Fieri from the Food Network paid a visit to try the famous food. Impressed, he featured Metro 29 on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Now folks come from far and wide to indulge.
