1. Guy's Burger Joint

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. It's probably the most "classic" of Fieri's restaurants and features his famous smash burgers served with diner-approved shakes and fries.

2. El Burro Borrachos

Guy Fieri seems to have a special fondness for tacos and Mexican cuisine, as he owns five Latin-themed restaurants. El Burro Borrachos, which translates to "The Drunk Donkey," features California-inspired Mexican fare, including an extensive margarita menu. El Burro Borrachos has two locations, and both are inside casinos in Nevada.

3. Guy Fieri's Tequila Cocina

The menu of this Boston-based restaurant is a twist on popular Latin street food, but the real star of this restaurant is the booze. Their bar program includes over a hundred different kinds of Tequila in addition to its regular offerings, including Fieri's own Guy's Santo Tequila. Tequila Cocina is currently located in Boston, Massachusetts.

4. Guy's Bar-B-Que Joint

Are you ready for this Que? All the recipes featured at the Atlantic City-based restaurant are inspired by Guy's National BBQ Hall of Fame-winning team, the Motley Que. All types of barbecue are featured here, from beef to pork to chicken and smoked sausages. And with those sides—including collard greens, mac-n-cheese, and baked beans—there's surely something to please everyone.

5. Guy Fieri's Highball Lounge

Guy's Highball Lounge is a treat for traveling as there are only two locations — one inside California's Burbank Airport, and the other in the airport in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. In addition to a hefty meal, you can enjoy several signature handcrafted cocktails. We recommend Guy's Famous BBQ Bloody Mary.

6. Guy Fieri's Pizza Parlor

With only one location in Hampton, Virginia, this restaurant is a real treat. Drawing from his 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 be. Paired with a wide array of sauces to pair your tenders with, you'll find yourself dreaming about these crunchy tenders.

Chicken Guy has nearly 20 locations across the U.S., including four locations in California.

8. Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar

Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar was his first restaurant based in Las Vegas and is located inside the Linq Hotel.

Don't worry, it's topped with donkey sauce so your tastebuds won't miss out on the fun.

9. Guy Fieri's American Kitchen & Bar

In November 2016, Guy Fieri expanded his restaurant empire to include Guy Fieri's Foxwoods Kitchen + Bar.

You're able to order from a selection of margaritas and Mexican lagers. A slight offshoot called Guy Fieri's Dive & Taco Joint also opened in Kansas City in 2019.

15. Guy's Pig & Anchor

You'll only be able to eat at Guy's Pig & Anchor aboard one of many Carnival cruise lines. Once onboard, you can feast on a selection of Guy's favorite barbecue dishes, including his Championship Pork Butt, Smoked Round of Beef, Smoked Andouille Sausage, in addition to his Blue Ribbon Chicken.

16. Guy's Sammich Joint
