A significant upgrade from Ponzio’s.
RT. 130 & Browning Lane
If you’ve been down route 130 in Brooklawn lately, you’ll see that the old mainstay, Ponzio’s, is gone, and a flashy new diner has taken its place. Fortunately for all diners involved, its a significant improvement in both quality and costs. We’ve visited the new Metro Diner for breakfast on two occasions and left pleased.
Expect good portion sizes with terrific prices. No omelets (with the exception of the Lox) is over $7.00, and you can get (3) big pancakes for under $5.00. The interior is roomy and cozy, with small ‘nooks’ where you can meet comfortably with friends. The dining areas can accommodate extremely large groups, and the leather sofas and marble floor in the lobby makes for a pleasant place to wait for your friends to arrive. They shouldnt have a problem finding the place with the bright, neon-esque lighting that surrounds the front of the building. Everything is done tastefully, and all the posh does not appear to have significantly increased dining costs or the quality of service.
For lunch, you’ll get a choice of 16 different burgers, wraps at $7.95, and an assortment of familiars. Dinner prices seem on par with other establishments in the area. Surf and Turf, at $23.95, appears to be the most expensive entrée. I need to try more than just breakfast, but so far, so good.
