The ultimate comfort food holiday is back and it’s time to celebrate National Fried Chicken & Waffle Day on Saturday, August 8 – a day created by Metro Diner. Honoring its third year and recognized as an official holiday by Chase’s Calendar, the famous Fried Chicken & Waffle dish from Metro Diner comes complete with a fluffy Belgian Waffle topped with sweet strawberry butter and half a fried chicken and served with the diner’s signature sweet and spicy sauce. For ultimate flavor, the diner starts preparing 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.

Throughout 2019, Metro Diner sold more than 485,000 orders of Fried Chicken & Waffles, that’s nearly 2 million pieces of fried chicken. Looking to help break this year’s record and to celebrate the national food holiday’s third anniversary, Metro Diner is hosting a three-day social contest (Aug. 8-10) where diner fans have the chance to win the dish for free along with a variety of prizes. The grand prize awards one lucky winner free Fried Chicken & Waffles for one entire year. Ten second place winners will receive a one-time free order of Fried Chicken & Waffles for two to share with a friend, and twenty third place winners will receive a one-time free single order of the dish.

Starting, Saturday, August 8 at 8 a.m. through Monday, August 10 at 12 p.m., when followers enter to win from the comfort of their own homes by liking Metro Diner’s National Fried Chicken & Waffle Day post on their Instagram and/or Facebook page and tag a friend, they will be entered to win one of the above three prizes. For five additional entries, followers can share their own post of the Fried Chicken & Waffle dish following the rules on their contest post. Contest stipulations listed below.

Metro Diner is also introducing Fried Chicken & Waffles to their Meal Pack Menu lineup that feeds up to four people and will be available on Mondays – Thursdays, August 10-27. When guests place an order for pick-up ($44) or have it delivered ($46), they will receive four BONUS fried chicken tenders.
