Guy Fieri opening chicken tender restaurant at Mall of America

Chicken Guy! will open early next year.

MINNEAPOLIS — If you weren't craving chicken fingers before, you will now.

Celebrity chef Guy Fieri is bringing Flavortown to Minneapolis and opening a new Chicken Guy! location inside the Mall of America.

Fieri's fifth Chicken Guy! location is expected to open early next year, and will serve "all-natural fresh chicken tenders" and 22 signature sauce options.

“'Go Big or Go Home’ has always been my motto and when it comes to bringin’ Chicken Guy! to Mall of America, I think it’s spot on,” said Guy Fieri. “The people of Minnesota know great food and I’ve been able to try a lot of it while visiting on DDD. But now, I’m stoked to add a lit bit of my own flavor with my real deal chicken tenders and sauces.”
