Tampa, Florida-- Valentine's Day reservations are pouring in for a local restaurant, but it might come as a surprise as to which one.
Two local fast food restaurants are filling up their reservations list for V-Day... McDonalds in Tampa.
"We really want everybody to enjoy Valentine's- that's the main idea," said a store manager at a Dale Mabry location, Ernesto Izquierdo.
He said his guest services manager came up with the idea.
"She has three children and she said it would be a sweet idea, especially for families who want to bring their kids with them on their Valentine's Day dinner."
He agreed and got the go-ahead from his boss with Caspers Company- that owns dozens of McDonald's locations in the Tampa area.
"We will have a section reserved for those Valentine's Day diners and the tables will be decorated with table cloths, and flowers and hearts everywhere. The servers will be nicely dressed and take everyone's order."
Another McDonald's location off Busch Blvd is also trying the Valentine's Day dinner for the first time.
"I can't wait because I just bought all the decorations," said assistant manager Taneka Cosby.
Cosby said she is putting flowers in each table along with glittery heart shapes, and champagne glasses.
"No real champagne but they are pretty glasses!" laughed Cosby.
Her location has at least five reservations already while Izquierdo's McDonald's has 20 reservations.
"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," he said. "And remember this does not have to be romantic, it could be a dad taking his daughter for Valentine's Day Dinner, and it will be special if they share it with us," he added.
The two locations are:
- Address: 6717 N Dale Mabry Hwy Tampa, FL
- Address: 3411 E Busch Blvd, Tampa, FL 33612
