Even if you don't watch the Food Network, you at least know Guy Fieri as the super meme-able blondie for the past few years. His spiky white hair and racer sunglasses make it easy to poke fun, but we have to give the guy credit - he is a master of all things food. Guy Fieri will be opening his popular restaurant, Chicken Guy! in Tennessee next year and yes, it tastes as good as it looks.
Guy Fieri, known for his super goofy and bubbly personality on Diners, Drive-in and Dives is always entertaining to watch (even via memes) and his food is equally as entertaining to our taste buds.
He and his outdated bleached hair and goatee have landed him much fame on the Food Network, leading him to open several successful restaurants across the U.S., inlcluding Guy Fieri's Smokehouse and Chicken Guy!
Chicken Guy! is a renowned Southern soul food restaurant with fried chicken done right with four current locations in Maryland, Florida and California. Fieri is doubling that number by adding four Tennessee locations in Nashville, Knoxville, Gatlinburg and Johnson City.
With all these locations, you have no excuse not to try the good eats. Of course, we know you'll want to because these eats are too good for words. The menu is simple yet jam-packed with flavor and quality ingredients. Choose from chicken tenders, salad bowls and sandwiches galore.
The golden ticket lies in the 22 amazing signature sauces to complement any meal. Load up on saucy goodness with Cumin Lime Mojo Sauce, Donkey Sauce (mayo, roasted garlic, mustard, worcestershire, lemon) and the signature Bourbon Brown Sugar BBQ (Kentucky bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, apple cider vinegar).
It's a must that you pair any entree with the loaded fries or loaded mac & cheese, both stacked with "SMC" (super melty cheese), chopped crispy chicken, bacon and green onions. Bonus: you won't spend more than $10 on anything on the menu.
You already went all out at this point and there's no turning back, so grab the Triple Double Mint piled with mint chocolate ice cream, crushed Oreos, chocolate mints, chocolate syrup and whipped cream.
Guy, as the food connoisseur he is, created the recipes for all the sauces and delicious juicy chicken (marinated in fresh lemon juice, pickle brine and buttermilk and infused with fresh herbs). The opening dates are TBD but Narcity will provide updates ASAP.
