Birmingham, AL — An Alabama Waffle House is going all out this Valentines Day.

“You know everyone is used to going to fancy places like Red Lobster or Golden Corral, if you have that here,” says manager Lonnie Hamilton. “Not everyone wants to go to those fancy places and we wanted to bring more of a home feeling to the Waffle House.”

On February 14, the Moody, Alabama Waffle House will tranform to an intimate and romantic atmosphere.  The tables will be covered with red linen tablecloths.  The restaurant will be lit with candlelight.  The waiters and waitresses will all wear button down shirts.

The restaurant did a similiar Valentine’s Day special last year and managers expect this year to be even better.  Hamilton says that reservations are already coming in.

“We just want to give you that home feeling, you know what I’m saying? That more cozy and intimate feeling for Valentine’s Day at the Waffle House.”

So much to love here:

  • Waffle House, the alternative to fancy places.  You know, like Red Lobster and Golden Corral!  LOL!!!!!
  • The down home, cozy feeling of….Waffle House?  (I mean, she is the manager, she has to have actually been in a Waffle House, right?)
  • Somehow I think even with the candle lights and red linen tablecloths, it is still a Waffle House.
  • The waiters and waitresses will be wearing button down shirts.  Uh-oh, don’t you risk losing that home, cozy feeling!?  (Should I make a joke that wife-beaters and trashy tube tops may be more appropriate?)
  • I don’t know what is more funny to me, the idea that people are making reservations for….Waffle House?  Or the idea that somewhere there is somebody that is going to be unable to make a reservation for….Waffle House?….because it is all booked up!  ‘Honey, I am so sorry.  I really wanted to do something special for Valentine’s Day.  But the Waffle House is booked solid!  It’s OK, though, I am going to make it up to you.  That’s right, tonight we are going to get two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun!  That’s right, ALL of that! Only the best for you honey, I love you so much!’

    They did that on several Waffle Houses in the country. It was a great success here in Dayton, Ohio 🙂 Don´t ask me why
