Metro Diner – a restaurant based in Florida with two locations also in the Richmond area – declared Aug. 8 as the first ever National Fried Chicken and Waffle Day. (The day was attempted by another restaurant a few years ago, but didn’t stick.)

“Why would we not do this? ” said Metro Diner. “The amount of praise we get for that dish is unbelievable.”
