Metro29 Diner menu looks good but the prices? Many items double or triple the prices at diners in our area.
But they have excellent quality, almost 'fine dining', and are located in an Arlington, VA 'hood where houses go for $500 - $700/sq. ft. For example, one of my favotites there - their fried shrimp are 8 count, prepared from fresh, and the serving is six of them.
Just look at it as "your tax dollars at work"!
