Come on down to Chicken Guy where chicken is the champ… and where you can find some food allergy options!
This is another fun quick serve style option in Disney Springs–right over by the entrance to Orange Garage and the AMC theater.
With quite a few yummy options for food allergies, we checked out the menu and sampled what Chicken Guy had to offer.
Does Chicken Guy have an upcharge for Gluten Free/Allergy Friendly Buns?
Yes. Depending on location, Chicken Guy has a gluten free surcharge for their buns. At Disney Springs in May 2022, that upcharge was 2 dollars for a gluten free bun.

What we ate that was Soy free, Gluten free, Dairy Free, Fish/shellfish free, Treenut and Peanut free (contains egg) 🥚
For my lunch, I was able to get a chicken sandwich with a safe bun and sauce!
The sauce was Brown Sugar BBQ and it had a major kick to it. I’m a wimp when it comes to spicy type foods so it was too much for me.
The sandwich itself was huge and well worth the 8 dollars–highly recommend even if you aren’t able to get the fries.
And the bun tasted absolutely incredible. It did fall apart towards the end (kinda expect that with all the moisture) but overall 10/10 for the chicken sandwich!

Important things to know regarding food allergy eats at Chicken Guy 🐓
Y’all have questions and we’ve got some answers regarding allergen procedures at Chicken Guy!
For starters, know that they have a dedicated gluten free fryer that is soybean oil.
The chicken is pre-marinated with dairy–but it’s not a big deal to get accommodations for dairy! They just have to pull from the back and then it needs to be grilled not fried to be dairy free.
If your looking for a Top 8 friendly option, you’ll use the chicken mentioned above and it would be a chicken salad.
Looking for a sandwich? They have a Gluten free bun available for an upcharge and it contains egg.
Let’s talk sauces! Something Chicken Guy is famous for is there sauces. Only three sauces have gluten and there are a handful that are top 8 friendly.
Woo!! They have an allergen guide behind the counter that lists which top 8 option is in each sauce. Gluten is labeled on the regular sauce menu.
No official allergen menu–but they do have a friendly guide when you get to the register. The manager was wonderfully helpful!

Does chicken guy use msg or its derivatives?
An awful lot of people worldwide have an allergy to MSG and/or its derivatives and Chicken Guy offered an Allergy Free Menu so I’m wondering if this includes it being FREE of MSG and it’s Derivatives- you know, those other Toxic Chemicals and Names that some Restaurants etc will Secretly use instead of stating that it’s still a type of MSG…
Great Question! So let me first say that I’m insanely allergic to MSG in all forms (so yeast, hydrolozied whatever, proteins, natural flavors etc) I eat a low glutamate diet (no gluten or soy). it is possible to get Chicken Guy MSG free, I simply ask for zero spices on the chicken or the fries and no sauce (the brown sugar one is OK). The chicken does have a salt brine that doesn’t bother me (I eat there monthly) Chicken Guy DOES use a MSG derivative spice during the cooking process that they add to the chicken and fries, so be cautious of how you approach it ordering to make sure you don’t have a reaction.
Thank you so much for this information. Ate there recently and got a migraine within an hour. Avoiding MSG is difficult and this kind of information is gold in my eyes. (Especially when the people working at the restaurant have no clue what allergens are in the foods they serve.)
happy to help Jolanta!
