What makes the menu complex is the ability to customize each of these items with one or more of their 22 different freshly made sauces. Add on fries, they’re a must. The seasoning makes them some of the best you’ll ever have!
All of the food is made fresh in the restaurant. The chicken is fresh never frozen, hand breaded and hand skewered nightly. The twenty-two sauces are also made right there at the restaurant using fresh ingredients.

Cocktails & Speciality Drinks
Chicken Guy serves wine and beer but the specialty drinks worth talking about are the non-alcoholic milkshakes. You can choose between the “Triple Double Mint” and Guy’s favorite, the “Apple Cinnamon Cereal”.
The “Apple Cinnamon Cereal” milkshake delivers a tasteful crunch filled with milk infused Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Apple Jack cereal topped with fresh whip cream.
While I did not try either of these milkshakes because they are not gluten-free, my friends told me they were both pretty amazing! So make sure you try them and then tag me in your posts so I can see what you think about Chicken Guy and these creative milkshake concoctions!
Chicken Guy’s menu features a few signature sandwiches that are made with two of their crispy fried chicken tenders or grilled chicken for a gluten-free option. I personally am so excited when a restaurant offers more than plain chicken or salad as the gluten-free option. And a gluten-free bun instead of a lettuce wrap totally makes my day!
Shown above are the gluten free options I ordered (tray on the front left) and the regular menu items ordered by Casey and Serena. The Sauce Boss is Chicken Guys most popular sandwich (middle of the picture) and can be customized with 2 sauces of your choice. On the far right is the loaded mac and cheese, which can be ordered as your entree or as a sharable side.
In the back, you’ll see ALL twenty-two house-made sauces at Chicken Guy. You get two sauces with each sandwich or order of chicken tenders and can order additional sauces for a small upcharge.
Gluten-Free Menu Options
I ordered the other most popular sandwich, the Big Bite B.L.A.T with a gluten-free bun and grilled chicken. The sandwich was smothered in Guys avocado cream and buttermilk ranch sauces which soaked into the bun nicely making this sandwich so yummy!
I also ordered the smothered fries with grilled chicken instead of fried making this an awesome gluten-free option as well! They were so good! A great grown-up option to the typical cheese fries we all know and love!
There is not a specific allergy menu at Chicken Guy. Ask for the allergy options when you order and know that the grilled chicken is available as both tenders or a sandwich with a gluten-free bun. The fries are also gluten-free and Chicken Guy has a dedicated fryer to ensure no cross-contamination.
Salads are always an option if you have the gluten containing items removed. Make sure to let the cashier know you have a gluten allergy so the kitchen can prepare your food in a clean area.
All but three of Chicken Guy’s sauces are gluten-free. These three are well marked on the menu. The sauces containing gluten are the Wasabi Honey, Teriyaki and Sweet N’ Sour. They’re the Asain sauces that contain soy sauce for easy reference.
Dining Plans are accepted at Chicken Guy. Each entree item will use one quick service credit. The sharable sides are large and could easily be split as a meal between two people to get the maximum use out of your credits.
I was really happy with my meal at Chicken Guy and thought it was a great bang for my buck at Disney Springs. I could easily eat a sandwich, fries, and drink for $10 ish dollars and be full. The portion sizes were good for one person unless you choose a sharable side and then I think you could split it between two people as long as they’re not huge eaters.
Next time you’re at Disney Springs give Chicken Guy a try and then tag me in your photos and tell me what you think!
