Disney Springs is the place to be if you’re looking for a bite to eat at Walt Disney World, and it’s about to get even better. Disney announced today that a new quick-service restaurant will be opening at Disney Springs next month, and our mouths are already watering.
Chicken Guy!, a creation from celebrity chef Guy Fieri and restauranteur Robert Earl, will be opening right next door to Planet Hollywood, a restaurant for which Fieri and Earl both recently collaborated to create the burger and sandwich menu.
The menu at Chicken Guy! will feature one-of-a-kind all-natural fresh chicken tenders, hand-pounded to maximize crunch and paired with a wide selection of delicious sauces. Brined in fresh lemon juice, pickle brine and buttermilk, and infused with fresh herbs, these tenders deliver on flavor and texture. The menu features the tenders—grilled or fried—in sandwiches, straight up on skewers, or in meal-sized salad bowls, and a wide array of sauces to enjoy with the chicken as well as tempting sides like Guy Fieri’s fries, crowd pleasing mac ‘n cheese, fried pickles and fresh slaw.
“I’m stoked to be building Chicken Guy! with my friend, Robert Earl,” said Fieri. “It’s all about the real deal, all-natural chicken but lemme tell you, our sauce game is on point.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Guy—first with the launch of his sandwich and burger menu at Planet Hollywood. Since then, we have kept in touch, determined to work on more projects together,” said Earl, the Founder and Chairman of Planet Hollywood. “We have found the perfect venture with Chicken Guy!, certain to be a crowd-pleaser. I have personally tasted all the menu items and can’t wait to open at Disney Springs and across the country, because I know our guests will love what Guy has put on the menu.”
Those with a sweet tooth will want to visit Chicken Guy! for their delicious frozen treats as well:
Guests can end their meal on a sweet note with the Triple Double Ice Cream Treat, a large cup of deliciousness combining triple chocolate and double mint, that may cause a few cases of brain freeze or the Cinnamon Apple, a heaping cup vanilla soft serve ice cream smothered in Cinnamon Toast Crunch& Apple Jacks cereal, yum!
No opening date has been set yet for Chicken Guy! but it is planned to open this August.
