Quote for Today: Man who invented the hamburger was smart; man who invented the cheeseburger was a genius. Matthew McConaughey Hellmann’s Burger Route Contest For many folks, brunch in Roswell GA is the norm on Sunday mornings. It’s not for the faint hearted to find a restaurant with seating room. We suggest making reservations, where available, for waiting in line for first come first served, you may be there awhile. Case in point, last Sunday we made our way to three different eateries before finding a spot for our family. We decided to try the newest diner in town, Metro Diner. The restaurant was filled to capacity but we managed to get a table. And, that’s where our story begins.
