** Unlike most (if not all) other 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.

** Unlike most (if not all) other 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. In Minneapolis, for example, Ann Kim of Pizzeria Lola and Creator/AndrewZimmern team up to persuade him to eat an egg pizza (he doesn't care for eggs, especially runny eggs).

* BowlingForRatings: Played With. Guy visits Bryan Lane Bowl in Minneapolis, MN, which is a diner... and a bowling alley. But it's hardly the working class dive as it serves pad thai, buffalo burgers and smoked salmon salad.

* DoesNotLIkeSpam: Guy does have some dislikes when it comes to food, such as eggs, sweets, and breakfast items. But that doesn't mean he's unwilling to try or appreciate them.

* {{Crossover}}: Of the culinary kind. An episode featured Chino Bandido, a joint mixing up Chinese, Mexican and Caribbean food.
** And then there's the internal crossover with ''Guy's Grocery Games'', featuring four of the most popular chefs from this series.

* HiddenDepths:
** Despite his appearance and personality, Guy does know a decent amount about cooking.
** Several of the chefs fall under this too. There are quite a lot of tattooed BoisterousBruiser cooks on the show that know perfectly well what they're doing in the kitchen.

* 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.

* 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!"
