Ever found yourself gnawing on one of those huge turkey legs at Disney World and thought to yourself, "Gee, I sure wish I could slather this turkey leg in donkey sauce"? Well, if this niche food fantasy sounds familiar, your dreams are about to come true. The most magical place on Earth is about to become a little more magical for fans of Guy Fieri, the self-proclaimed "Boss of Sauce," who is opening a restaurant in Disney World at the end of this summer. One express ticket to Flavortown, please!
The restaurant, called Chicken Guy! (don't forget the exclamation point), will specialize in serving up chicken tenders, which makes total sense for the theme park. A cursory glance at the children's menu of any restaurant will tell you that kids freaking love chicken tenders. Parents will love it too, because along with their grilled or fried chicken tenders, they'll be able to choose from more than 20 sauces made in house. If there's no donkey sauce on that menu, we're revolting at dawn.
As elaborate as Fieri's frosted tips, dark brown goatee and bleach-blond soul patch, the menu has quite a few embellishments that a minimalist might call totally unnecessary. But the foodie maximalist in us all can surely appreciate items such as loaded fries with SMC (super-melty cheese) topped with chicken, bacon and green onions and the Big Bite B.L.A.T., a chicken sandwich topped smoked bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato and buttermilk ranch sauce. There will be an array of hefty chicken salads to choose from, and for dessert, frozen treats. You might want to skip your Dole Whip in favor of hand-spun ice cream sundaes.
Chicken Guy! will be located in Disney Springs right next to Planet Hollywood, where Fieri recently collaborated on a new burger and sandwich menu. Plan a trip to the park this August, and you'll be feasting in Flavortown at the happiest place on Earth.
