6. Guy Fieri's Pizza Parlor

With only one location in Hampton, Virginia, this restaurant is a real treat. Drawing from his own Italian heritage, this spot is a Fieri-take on a classic pizza joint. The "Fat Boy" Pizza sounds like something straight out of Flavortown, and includes ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and Guy's famous Donkey sauce.

7. Chicken Guy

Chicken Guy is all about one thing: Chicken tenders. These tenders are brined in both buttermilk and fresh lemon juice to make them as flavorful and juicy as they can possibly be. Paired with a wide array of sauces to pair your nuggets with, you'll find yourself dreaming about these crunchy tenders.
There are currently 4 Chicken Guys, (Winter Park, Disney Springs, Nashville, and Gatlinburg) with 8 more slated to open in the upcoming months in Miami, Los Angeles, and at the Mall of America.
