Waiters' Race Atlanta

  • The Shops Buckhead Atlanta 3035 Peachtree Road Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30305 United States (map)

The Waiters' Race is a century old French tradition that tests the skills a waiter uses every day to provide quality service in a timely manner. The first Waiters' Race, organized to celebrate the excellence and dedication of the waiter’s profession, started in Paris and takes place in over 52 countries today. The concept of the race is very simple: waiters have to race as fast as possible holding a loaded tray without spilling its contents. The best waiter or waitress wins!

This year, Atlanta will have its second annual  Waiters' Race hosted by Le Bilboquet and The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. All proceeds will benefit Giving Kitchen. 

Waiters' from all over the Metro Atlanta area will compete for a round-trip ticket to Paris and a traveling trophy to be housed in their restaurant for the next 12 months. Participants will be judged on speed, service and style. Participants will walk or run with a server's tray in one hand that will include restaurant themed items.

New this year, Waiters' Race 2018 will be offering:
