Flavor Flav -- Closing In on Vegas Chicken Deal

4/13/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

First Iowa, then THE WORLD -- TMZ has learned, Flavor Flav is taking his chicken franchise to the Riviera Casino in Las Vegas ... and he even met with the casino CEO to help his dream take wing.

Flav took the Riviera boardroom by STORM Monday during a meeting with casino bigwigs -- including CEO Andy Choy -- and sources close to the deal tell TMZ, Operation Fried Chicken is basically a go in Sin City ... pending some last minute number crunching and contract kinks.

It'd be a huge move up from his first location in rural Iowa -- according to sources, Flav's Fried Chicken would occupy some PRIME real estate inside the hotel ... once the deal goes through.

What a surreal life.

Nope. Never gonna try it. When in Vegas, besides decent restaurants, I Eat my 1st & Last meal in town at Tommy's Burgers. Reminds me of L.A.,CA.

Has anybody who posts here ever actually TASTED Flav's chicken? Just wondering if it anything going for it OTHER than Flav's "brand"?

Also, if the Vegas franchise does open, will the waitstaff have to wear Flav-style Viking helmets?

I heard his chicken wings are good. But can they beat Popeyes?

Its going to be hard to open the Chicken stand. When, the Riviera is closing in Mid-May 2011. I guess his franchise is doomed from the start.

Maybe a step up from Iowa, but this isn't 1978 anymore. The Riviera is a second or third tier casino these days. Would have been more impressive in the Bellagio or Aria.
