* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The show was initially a lot more low-key, had a muted color palatte owing to DV cameras made at the time and Guy was a lot quieter.

** Unlike most cooking shows...heck...all cooking shows...occasionally Guy eats something that he simply doesn't like. But he generally makes it so humorous that the chef doesn't seem to mind.

* MeatVersusVeggies: Averted. While a big meat eater, Guy has raved about vegetarian dishes, such as the spinach quesadillas at The Cove in San Anotonio, TX and the vegetarian Pho soup at The Fly Trap in Ferndale, MI.

* StopBeingStereotypical: Barely averted, but one of the greatest chicken Guy has ever tasted was From Uncle Lou... created, served and attended almost exclusively by an African American with grandma recipe. To put icing on the cake, Lou is almost a real life version of [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Chef]], down to the voice.
* SupremeChef: Jamie's Bar and Grill blows Guy's mind, making beef sandwich with mignon prepared every morning, chopping each spice by hand, smoking his own prime rib, cooking through weekends without being open for business, and so on. Then there's Lucky's Cafe, a place that makes absolutely everything from scratch. The corned beef, breakfast sausage, pickles, ketchup, etc.
* TastesLikeChicken: Lampshaded. When a chef makes grilled octopus he tells Guy that it "Tastes Like Chicken!"
