There’s a brand-new eatery getting ready to hatch at Disney Springs – Chicken Guy! This quick-service restaurant is the creation of celebrity chef Guy Fieri and restauranteur Robert Earl. These two most recently collaborated on the new burger and sandwich menu at Planet Hollywood and came together once again to create an all-new concept that features one-of-a-kind all-natural fresh chicken tenders.
I have to assume this means that Planet Hollywood is doing well, and I am a little bummed to say that I’m not surprised. Guy Fieri is popular with a lot of people. He’s certainly not my cup of tea (bite of chicken?), but I understand why people love him so much. His show is super positive, and he showcases crowd pleasing burgers and fries. It’s disheartening, but I see this place doing very well.
What I find irksome is how cheap this all looks. From the unhealthy menu, to the cheap “hold in the wall” style graphic design, this whole place just seems like it doesn’t belong anywhere at Disney, let alone Disney Springs. Planet Hollywood might have the ranch dressing filled menu, but at least they tried to improve the decor of the restaurant. This press release makes it look like the team knows exactly what this place will be.
