TAMPA, Fla.Aug. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Metro Diner, known for serious diner food, declares that August 8th will be the inaugural National Fried Chicken & Waffle Day. To mark this date, the popular concept is serving up their beloved Fried Chicken & Waffle dish for just $9.99 (regularly $15.99).

Diners who celebrate the first ever Fried Chicken & Waffle Day at Metro Diner will enjoy a Belgian waffle topped with sweet, strawberry butter and half a fried chicken, served with the diner’s signature sweet and spicy sauce. For ultimate flavor, the diner prepares their chicken for 48 hours prior to serving, first brining it for 24 hours and then marinating for an additional 24 hours for maximum flavor and juiciness. Already serving over 250,000 orders of Fried Chicken & Waffle in the first half of this year, Metro Diner is on track for half a million orders by the end of 2018. That amounts to over twelve hundred orders a day.
