Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri is finally bringing his fast growing Chicken Guy! Restaurant to Las Vegas. The restaurant originally announced plans to open as early as October, while restaurateur Robert Earl first announced plans to expand in Eater Vegas two years ago.
Now officially announced to be soon in the Las Vegas North Premium Outlets, Chicken Guy! will replace a former Claire’s retail store that faces the mall’s food court. The documents for the remodeling of the room were initially submitted in March of this year before being put on hold.
The counter-service restaurant specializes in crispy fried or grilled chicken tenders prepared with lemon juice, brine, buttermilk and fresh herbs.
Each dish comes with a choice of sauces from 22 options including donkey sauce with mayo, roasted garlic, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and lemon, as well as wasbi honey, peri-peri and a collection of hot and spicy flavors. Repeat guests who sign up for the brand’s Sauce Squad will receive two additional free sauces per visit.
Fieri recently received awards for its partnership with the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, which raised more than $ 20 million to support struggling restaurant workers. Together with Earl he started Chicken Guy! in 2018 at the Disney Springs of Walt Disney World Resort, where the franchise expands to Maryland, Minnesota, California and three shopping centers in Florida.
A future debut date or hours of operation were not disclosed.
