Chicken Guy Coming Soon

Guy Fieri, who apparently really loves Florida, will be opening new Chicken Guy restaurants at Dadeland Mall (Kendall, Florida) and Sawgrass Mills Mall (Sunrise, Florida) and another at Mall of America (Bloomington, Minnesota). The 1st location Chicken Guy at Disney Springs (Lake Buena Vista, Florida), 2nd at Aventura Mall (Aventura, Florida), plus two more at FedEx Stadium (Landover, Maryland) and Levis Stadium (Santa Clara, California) round out the current number of locations.

Chicken Guy is the creation of Guy Fieri and restauranteur Robert Earl (Planet Hollywood, Earl of Sandwiches). It features crispy & grilled chicken tenders along with four signature tender sandwiches, some sides, drinks, and shakes.

“It’s antibiotic hormone-free chicken. We brine it, we dredge it and we hand dredge the chicken. We pressure fry it and it’s a crispy chicken. Then, we decide if we want to go for heavy sauce, light sauce spicy or traditional sauce,” he explained.

There are 22 sauces to choose from that can be mixed to create over 407,560,8180 sauce combinations. The sauces are conveniently laid out on their website in Guy Favorites, The Classics, and Hot ‘N’ Spicy. On a side and totally related note, Guy’s Special Sauce recipe can be found on Rachael Ray’s site.

The Dadeland location, which is the closest one to my home, will be found at Terrace Dining, 2nd Level. The official opening dates for all three have not been announced, but as always, I’ll update this page as soon as there is one available.
