Is a "Fancy Like" themed Applebee's coming to downtown Nashville? In a new interview, Walker Hayes teased that a restaurant dedicated to his viral song may be on its way.
"There's talks of us for real opening one down on Broadway in Nashville," revealed the country singer. "A 'Fancy Like' Applebee's," he added. No further details have been shared about plans, but until then fans can stay tuned for updates. The song spawned a viral TikTok dance and even encouraged the restaurant to bring back their discontinued Oreo Shake, via Taste Of Country. Applebee's made use of the song in their commercials and recently gave Hayes a "slap on the wrist" when he mentioned Olive Garden in his latest song "Y'all Life."
"And them high school kids traveling like James Harden / In them white limousines to the Olive Garden," sings Hayes on the track. He explained in the interview, "I got a little slap on the wrist from Applebee's. I love Applebee's, and they are my No. 1 restaurant, but we snuck an Olive Garden in this song, because that's where we went for prom night." He continued, "We didn't go to Applebee's, we went to Olive Garden. I don't know, it just seemed a little fancier."
