Fried Chicken wars are nothing new. We’ve seen Popeye’s versus KFC and Popeye’s versus Chic-fil-A go at it as the battle for the best chicken sandwich swells across the United States. Although the sides are drawn clearly, with loyal fanbases claiming their allegiances to their favorite fried chicken vendors, a new competitor has thrown their hat into the ring, and this one has a location at Walt Disney World.

Because of the hype surrounding the newcomer chicken joint, Disney World was happy to facilitate the chain location at Disney Springs, in all its buttermilk goodness.

Disney Springs, Disney World’s entertainment and shopping district, is no stranger to must-have bites and popular dining. Believe it or not, at Disney Springs, you’re likely to find hour-long waits for cookies at Gideon’s Bakehouse. So, a high-profile spot like Chicken Guy! has fit perfectly since its 2018 opening.

It’s important to understand moving forward that the restaurant chain is not owned or managed by Disney. They only have a location at Disney Springs. According to their own website, Chicken Guy! is owned by “chef Guy Fieri and renowned restaurateur Robert Earl.” Therefore, Disney is not responsible for any of their marketing, which has taken a hilarious turn.

On X, formerly Twitter, the official Chicken Guy! pulled no punches by landing the first blow in what could become the newest battle of the Fried Chicken War. Throwing shade at famed chicken spot Chic-fil-A, the popular dive recently posted a photo of a branded Chic-fil-A truck parked in one of their parking lots, accompanied by the caption, “Now we know where they eat on Saturday nights.”

Memed restaurant accounts are nothing new. If you don’t believe me, take a look at Wendy’s Facebook account; it’s chaos. However, this initial shot at the very prosperous southern chicken company is the next step in the evolution of fast food and online chatter between competing chains, and we’re here for it.

Obviously, this isn’t the popular Disney Springs location, but as the famed eatery does have a store at Walt Disney World, seeing them take on one of their competitors on social media is still shocking, not to mention, hilarious.

If you’re looking to indulge in some mouthwatering chicken dishes, as Chicken Guy! expands its location, it is definitely a must-visit. With its bold flavors, customizable sauces, and friendly ambiance, it’s no wonder why this fast-casual restaurant has become a favorite among chicken lovers. So, head over to your nearest Chicken Guy location and get ready to experience a finger-lickin’ good time!
