New restaurant in River Park is inspired by Disney's California Adventure 'Soarin' ride

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- There's a new restaurant landing soon in Fresno's River Park.

Officials at The Hangar gave Action News a tour of the new eatery, located in the spot formerly occupied by World Sports Cafe.

The founder is a huge fan of "Soarin' over the World" at Disney's California Adventure park and was inspired to create a similar experience for families.

Some of the most popular dishes are the crispy chicken sandwich, the western bacon cheeseburger and the Hawaiian dog.
