Guy Fieri's Restaurants
Guy's Burger Joint is Fieri's largest chain, with 34 locations. This includes all 27 Carnival Cruise ships, as well as locations in Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, and Colombia. Guy's Pig & Anchor is exclusive to Carnival ships and serves up delicious meaty BBQ. If you're land bound, Fieri has 2 locations of his bar-b-que joint, called Guy Fieri's Smokehouse. Here he serves up his signature BBQ sauces, like bourbon brown sugar.
Guy Fieri seems to have a special fondness for tacos and Mexican cuisine, as he owns five Latin themed restaurants: El Burro Borrachos, Guy Fieri's Tequila Cocina, Guy Fieri's Dive Bar & Taco Joint, Guy Fieri's Taco Joint, and Trashcan Nachos. Trashcan Nachos is actually a well known comfort food dish from the celebrity chef. People can place orders for it though a ghost kitchen and get it delivered right to their door. Jalapeno fans rejoice. Also not bad with a big bite of cheesecake.
Other Guy Fieri restaurants include: Guy's Bar-B-Que Joint, Guy Fieri's Highball Lounge, Guy Fieri's Pizza Parlor, Chicken Guy, Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar, and Guy Fieri's American Kitchen & Bar. If you want to try the famous, award winning, bacon mac 'n' cheeseburger, you'll need to head to his Las Vegas joint. Don't worry, it's topped with donkey sauce so your tastebuds won't miss out on the fun.
Guy Fieri is Charitable, Too
