Joe Manganiello wouldn't give up this weekend until he got rumored flame Sofia Vergara exactly what she wanted: some authentic New Orleans fried chicken.

The "True Blood" star and the "Modern Family" bombshell, 41, came in Sunday afternoon to Li'l Dizzy's Cafe in New Orleans where Vergara was first to ask for a to-go order of fried chicken and bread pudding, cashier Kathy Larsen said.

"We were extremely busy. I told them,'Sorry,' but we couldn't accommodate to-go orders," she told ABC News.

But then, according to Larsen, Manganiello, 37, stepped in and tried to turn on the charm.

"He did his best to try and persuade me to change my mind," she added, but said they served over 350 people that day and were just too busy.

As the two actors turned to leave, a table recognized them and invited them to join their table.

As for interacting like a couple, Larsen couldn't confirm, but she did say "they sat together and were definitely friendly."

The party they joined was for a girl's birthday and Manganiello was so grateful that he got up and paid the bill for the entire table.

Manganiello first met Vergara at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington earlier this year. Vergara announced her split from former fiancé Nick Loeb at the end of May.
