Chef, restaurateur, New York Times bestselling author, and Emmy Award-winning TV host Guy Fieri joined forces with internationally-renowned restaurateur Robert Earl to debut Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Kitchen. It is the latest celebrity-owned brand now available for online orders.

Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Kitchen is part of Virtual Dining Concepts, one of the fastest-growing virtual restaurant groups, according to a news release.

“When Robert came to me with the idea of making some of my all-time favorite real-deal menu items available in virtual kitchens across the country, I was all in,” Fieri states in the news release. “Now I get to bring Flavortown to your town!”

Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Kitchen’s online menu was created by Fieri and include some of his most popular dishes.

Jalapeño Pig Poppers are one of several shareable appetizer offerings. Fire-roasted jalapeños are stuffed with andouille and pimento cream cheese. They are then wrapped in bacon and glazed in Bourbon Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce. Other appetizers on the menu are S-M-Cheesesteak Egg Rolls, Bourbon Brown Sugar BBQ Wings, Queso Dip with Tortillas, and Buffalo Wings.

For the main course the kitchen offers several giant burgers. The Bacon Mac N Cheeseburger is comprised of 80/20 ground beef, super melty cheese, mac ‘n’ cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles, crispy onions, and Donkey Sauce on a garlic buttered brioche. The “80/20” means a breakdown of 80% lean beef to 20% fat. The Donkey Sauce is made of mayonnaise, roasted garlic, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and lemon. Customers can also choose the Real Cheezy Burger, or a sandwich including The Chicken Guy! Classic Sandwich or The Crazy Cuban Sandwich.

Sides include Flavortown Fries, Mac Daddy Mac N Cheese and Fried Pickles & Ranch.

People who prefer a plant-based patty can indulge in the Morgan’s Veggie Burger. It features a scratch-made veggie patty, lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles, crispy onions, and Donkey Sauce on a toasted brioche bun.

Pasta lovers can select the Cajun Chicken Alfredo or the Chicken Parm-eroni.

Lighter fare seekers can opt for The ‘OG’ Caesar Salad or the Italian Stallion Salad that is made up of salami, prosciutto, pepperoncini, olives, roasted peppers, provolone and buffalo mozzarella dressed with a red wine vinaigrette.

Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Kitchen opened on March 3 in Albuquerque. The ghost kitchen, which does not have a storefront, operates out of Buca di Beppo in Uptown to prepare and cook Flavortown offerings. A ghost kitchen is a separate entity that makes and serves food out of an existing restaurant for carry out and delivery.

Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Kitchen locations are dependent on restaurants across the country interested in a partnership. The kitchen is the latest brand to join the ranks of other celebrity and influencer partners who have created virtual restaurant brands with Virtual Dining Concepts, according to a spokesperson for Virtual Dining Concepts. The opportunity is open to all restaurants that would like to get the most out of their kitchen’s earning power by tapping into the restaurant delivery trend.

Orders can be placed through the Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Kitchen app that can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play. Delivery orders also can be made via third-party delivery apps including Grubhub, DoorDash, Postmates, UberEats and Seamless. More information can be found at
