Guy Fieri might be an influential chef and high paying food television star, but the newest Guy Fieri restaurant coming to the Orlando are will make satisfying that Donkey sauce craving even easier. Ready to take a drive to Chicken Guy?

With many locations across the U.S., Guy Fieri restaurants have varying menus, but they have one thing in common. Fans of the popular chef will make a special trip to enjoy that food which has his name. Even though there is a delivery only option for some of the Fieri food offerings, some people will prefer to get their chicken straight from the original source.

Chicken Guy is a quick service restaurant with locations in Disney Springs and Aventura Mall in Miami and two locations within sports venues. With a menu focused primarily on chicken tenders, the dishes are approachable for all ages and food preferences. The food might not be haute cuisine, but it is quite popular.

As said by Planet Hollywood founder and chairman Robert Earl, partner of Chicken Guy, he believes “we are well on our way to becoming a household name nationwide.” Given the success of the two restaurateurs, that concept is a strong possibility.

What’s different about this new Guy Fieri restaurant?

Set to open in Winter Park. Florida, the newest Chicken Guy location will feature a drive through. Now, instead of walking a distance through the Disney Springs property or having to go to a mall, guests can simply join the line, order some chicken and enjoy.

From locals just wanting a tasty meal to tourists who are willing to make a special trip, this restaurant should have a good following. Could Triple D be changed to include drive-throughs?

While the chicken sandwich wars seem to be on going, this restaurant expansion takes the chicken conversation in a different direction. Although the Fieri name often draws guests to place that first order, the 22 different sauces bring them back time and again. If this location is successful, it begs the question if Chicken Guy will want to take on the Colonel?

For now, the Winter Park location, 18 South Orlando Avenue, Winter Park, Florida, 32789, is set to open in late summer 2021.
