Guy Fieri brings his donkey sauce to Disney Springs


Guy Fieri is set to bring his signature donkey sauce to the foodie destination, Disney Springs. Will food fans flock to this new eatery?

Ready to experience Guy Fieri dynamic food? Opening soon at Disney Springs, Chicken Guy! Is set to be a counter service restaurant that will appeal to both families and foodies. With a menu focused on chicken tenders, this restaurant should appeal to the family Disney crowd.

According to the Disney Springs announcement, this location will serve as the flagship for this concept. Fieri is partnering with Robert Earl. Fieri and Earl worked together on the recent Planet Hollywood menu revamp. That partnership proved successful and this one should be as well.

Following one successful collaboration between celebrity chef, Guy Fieri, and restaurateur, Robert Earl, the two dynamic forces have come together to create a new concept that will launch its flagship location at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Chicken Guy! is a fast-casual chain dedicated to serving delicious, succulent chicken tenders paired with a wide variety of flavorful sauces meant to please all palates. 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. (Disney)

The restaurant’s menu looks to feature all types of chicken tender offerings. From fried to grilled to sandwiches and salads, there seems to be an option for everyone. It does seem unusual that the concept is a counter service. Many of the other Disney Springs restaurants feature more elevated restaurant options. But, this concept is probably better suited to a more laid back, order and eat scenario.

  • Looking at the menu and its concept, one idea is quite interesting. The restaurant is said to have a wide array of sauces. Now, everyone has heard of the infamous Donkey Sauce. While that option will be on the menu, it will be interesting to see if the sauces eclipse the chicken.

    Of course, a menu isn’t complete with just chicken. The restaurant is set to offer other items like mac n’ cheese and fried pickles. It appears that this menu focuses more on items for cheat days. While there appears to be some salad options, I don’t think that calorie counting is the priority.

    Also, guests should save room for desserts. Similar to the shakes at Planet Hollywood, Chicken Guy! will offer some yummy desserts. The soft serve ice cream with cereal toppings sounds delightful. Everyone will probably be craving a sweet treat after all those chicken tenders.

    While the exact opening date of this restaurant wasn’t announced, Disney Spring visitors should be able to indulge in this flavortown experience later this summer.
