LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Celebrity chef Guy Fieri is planning on setting up shop in Louisville.

Fieri has announced plans to open Guy Fieri's Smokehouse in the former Sully's Restaurant & Saloon property at 4th Street Live!

The announcement came Tuesday morning. The Food Network's "Diners, Drive ins and Dives" star says the new restaurant won't be your average barbecue joint.

"As you know on Triple D, I've hit over 1,100 restaurants," Fieri told reporters. "I’ve had the goods on shows...but I've been to the great places. I'm going to bring you a real, eclectic, genuine, scratch-made restaurant that's going to be right here at Fourth Street Live."

The public and city officials came together Tuesday to give Guy Fieri himself a warm Louisville welcome.

Construction is just getting started, but that isn't stopping Fieri from showing us what we can expect on the menu: burgers pig wings, rib eye steak, fried chicken, lamb chops and much more.

Soon to be joining restaurants like Bourbon Raw, Barracibo, and the new Jim Beam Urban Stillhouse, the famous chef said he's ready to break into the Louisville scene and show foodies what he's truly made of.

The restaurant is set to open September 9th.
