A place in my home town was featured once- it has really good food, but way too greasy for every day! I like to go there once a year as a treat.

I enjoy all his stuff, he seems like a genuinely nice guy. He's done well for himself after winning the Next Food Network Star.

That's been done to the death. At least one other thread here. I actually enjoyed the comparisons Fieri and Michelle were making about themselves on Next Food Network Star

I can't say I love or hate Guy. I think he is a real talent and will be around for a long time. Is he Iron Chef material? No, unless it was subbing in for Alton (who I love to bits!)

Okay, so now I know Michelle didn't win (we have the final today). I actually have my bet on someone else. Please don't spoil it for me as I have about 5 hours before I get to see it.

I spotted him as a winner the first time I saw him on Food Network Star, long before he won. I really enjoy his spontaneous off the wall humor and he's a genuine entertainer to be sure. He's around the age of my sons, and I bet his parents are busting their buttons with pride.
You go Guy!!

I'm not sure how good of a chef he really is, but he's entertaining enough. More importantly, he doesn't come off as rude or arrogant like some of FN's "stars".

DW and I have sought out a few of the places that have been featured on Triple-D. For the most part, they've lived up to the hype.

Yeah I could really care less about how he cooks, He just has a way with people and triple D is a great show.

If you guys have been to any of the places name them and rate em.
-Since my memory is shot I'll name a few I am certain I can remember

I lived in Charleston SC this past summer and I went to Fuel which he went to. Absolutely love the young vibe from the place. Only went for brunch but it was prettty great.

Guy went to the Glass Onion which was up the road from my house in West Ashley SC and I will have to go there when I get back

I also went to Quahogs Seafood Shack in Stone Harbor NJ and thought the food was pretty poor, and the service was atrocious. Might have been a bad night not really sure. I also think the chef that was on the episode wasn't there anymore because his food looked amazing and Guy said it was one of the best seafood dishes he ever had. They weren't putting out that quality of food.

I know there are a few other places I just can't think of right now. But it is always cool to try the things he trys because usually they look and are so damn good.

His style of cooking isn't mine, but I do enjoy watching him. As others have said, he seems like a very energetic likeable guy.
