ATLANTA — With the United States men’s national soccer team playing Belgium in the round of 16 of the World Cup on Tuesday, Waffle House has taken things to a different level.

The breakfast chain called for a boycott on Belgian waffles (and Belgium) as a show of support for the U.S.

“We’ve never served Belgian waffles at Waffle House, and we just want to support team USA,” Waffle House spokeswoman Meghan Irwin told NBC. “It’s just supposed to be really fun, and we want to just stand behind Team USA.”
