Ah, the pressure of crafting the perfect Valentine's Day. Something romantic, yet not a night that's going to break the bank. Never fear, Tampanians: good old Mickey D's has you covered on both fronts.
"We have more reservations than we expected already, but we will make it work and keep everyone happy and smiling, because that is what we do best," store manager Ernesto Izquierdo told local CBS affiliate WTSP.
There are reportedly 25 reservations between the two restaurants and diners who went the extra mile will get to sit in a special reserved section complete with dressed-up waiters, tablecloths, champagne flutes for your non-alcoholic beverage, flowers, and hearts. The first 10 customers in the doors will also receive a rose.
Everything on the menu is available to order (even the breakfast steak if you're in a steakhouse kind of mood) and patrons will pay an extra 20% to offset the cost of the perks, certainly a much smaller surcharge than you'd see anywhere else. Don't miss the dessert buffet!
Families who want to take their kids out for Valentine's Day are also encouraged to take part. Izquierdo said it does not have to be a romantic occasion, adding that "it will be special if they share it with us,” no matter the relationship.
"We really want everybody to enjoy Valentine's- that's the main idea," he said.
