WINTER PARK, Fla. – Food Network star Guy Fieri’s Chicken Guy! restaurant will open its new Winter Park location Thursday. The restaurant opens its doors to customers starting at 11 a.m.

Less than a week ago, the restaurant, which focuses on fried chicken sandwiches and tenders, announced its opening date with a short video on social media that said “Winter Park Is Coming,” along with a caption that said 12.2.21.


According to a news release, this will also be the first free-standing Chicken Guy! location with a drive-thru. The new spot will also feature outdoor seating for up to 12 people, the company said.

The restaurant was built up around the shell of the former Steak ‘n Shake that sat at 818 S. Orlando Avenue.

This will be the second Chicken Guy! location to open in Central Florida, the first being in Disney Springs.

Chicken Guy! promises chicken tenders accompanied by 22 sauces and served on sandwiches, skewers, on their own and in salads, according to the release. The menu also includes sides like fries, mac and cheese, fried pickles and coleslaw.
