The Mayor of Flavortown rides the ghost kitchen wave, teaming up with Virtual Dining Concepts and restaurateur Robert Earl to create a delivery-only burgers and chicken sandwiches.
Guy Fieri’s new Flavortown Chicken offers the TV chef’s favorite dishes such as bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers dubbed Pig Poppers, bourbon brown sugar Buffalo wings, burgers topped with bacon and mac and cheese, cheesesteak egg rolls, and even a veggie burger. Cajun chicken alfredo, chicken Parmesan, fried pickles, and Flavortown fries make the tight menu.
Customers can order from one of two Las Vegas locations — including Buca di Beppo on West Lake Mead Boulevard or Brio Tuscan Grill at Town Square — or via third-party delivery apps including GrubHub, DoorDash, Postmates, UberEats, and Seamless. But the Flavortown dishes are only available via delivery.
Virtual Dining Concepts and Earl already have ghost kitchens with rapper Tyga and his chicken bites and singer Mariah Carey and her cookies. And coming soon, Mario’s Tortas Lopez by Mario Lopez and Pauly D’s Italian Subs by DJ Pauly D.
Fieri plans to open Chicken Guy! at the Las Vegas North Premium Outlets. The counter-service restaurant specializes in crispy fried or grilled chicken tenders prepared with lemon juice, pickle brine, buttermilk, and fresh herbs, and served as a standalone serving or in sandwiches that include upgrades of bourbon brown sugar barbecue and smoked bacon and avocado crema.
Fieri, a UNLV grad, also has Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at the Linq and Guy Fieri’s El Burro Borracho at the Rio, which is still temporarily closed.
