Finding a Meal with a Side of Romance at the Waffle House

Dixie has always demonstrated a dichotomy when it comes to its men and romance.

On one hand,  you have the chivalric, courtly charms of the Southern gentleman as embodied in such characters as Ashley Wilkes in Gone with the Wind. On the other end of the Southern male spectrum, you have your bromancing, baseball-cap-wearing, fast-car racing, beer guzzling, gun toting redneck with a nickname like Gunner or Bubba.

For example of what we mean take dining. The first type of man can often be found eating on exquisite China in expensive, jacket-required, urban restaurants. The second type usually frequents the numerous diners and dives that dot the South’s highways and rural roads.

Of course, when it comes to romantic settings with a culinary focus, the upcoming Valentine’s Day and its dining is in a class by itself. Now what if you could bring together all the best elements of both elegant eating and diner dining for that special woman (or man) in your life?

Well, you can. For the 9th year in a row, Waffle House – one of the South’s most iconic eateries – will be rolling out white or red table cloths, lighting truckloads of romantic candles, and offering specially tailored menus for its one-of-kind Valentine’s Day experience.
