Chicken & Waffle Day Aug 8th

Celebrate Chicken & Waffle Day with Metro Diner

We can’t think of anything more holiday-worthy than our signature Fried Chicken & Waffle dish — so we made it an official national holiday! This Metro Diner fan-favorite piles half a savory fried chicken beside a sweet strawberry butter-topped Belgian waffle, drizzled with our signature spicy sauce. It’s the perfect dish for breakfast, lunch, OR dinner!

Celebrate with us at your favorite diner – or order your Fried Chicken & Waffle to-go, for curbside pickup, or home delivery.
