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 classis 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!
