Fourth Annual National Fried Chicken & Waffle Day Returns August 8 at Metro Diner

Ultimate comfort food holiday celebrated at diners nationwide with sweet specials

TAMPA, Fla. (August 2, 2021) – National Fried Chicken & Waffle Day returns for its fourth year on Sunday, August 8 and is sweeter than ever! Created by Metro Diner and recognized as an official holiday by Chase’s Calendar, Metro Diner is showing appreciation for Fried Chicken & Waffle fans all weekend long when guests order the dish on Saturday, August 7 and Sunday, August 8, the diners will gift them a $5 certificate to enjoy on a future visit.

Metro Diner’s famous Fried Chicken and Waffle features a fluffy Belgian waffle topped with sweet strawberry butter and half a fried chicken with the diner’s signature sweet and spicy sauce. For maximum flavor and juiciness, Metro Diner starts preparing the chicken 48 hours prior to serving; it’s brined for 24 hours and then marinated for an additional 24 hours.

“Our guests just can’t get enough of this American classic diner dish, which is as popular for lunch and dinner as it is for breakfast,” said Metro Diner Founder Mark Davoli. “It’s an irresistible meeting of savory and sweet, and the crunch of our perfectly fried chicken with the pillow-soft waffles is a match made in diner heaven.”

Fried Chicken & Waffles is the No. 1 dish at Metro Diner, which has served more than 1,468,000 orders since the holiday’s inception in 2018 – that’s over 5,872,000 pieces of fried chicken!

Fried Chicken & Waffles have earned notice for Metro Diner, which was featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, hosted by celebrity chef Guy Fieri.
