We went to Guy Fieri’s Chophouse at Bally’s (Atlantic City). To be honest, I didn’t expect it to be good after all the bad reviews Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar (Times Square) gets. But they were telling us that once they worked out the deal with Guy Fieri, he sent over his recipes and the chefs there were like “uh… Let’s rework these.” The Chophouse is a totally different restaurant than the Times Square location. It’s much better. I gotta say, now this is Flavortown!
The Danger Wings were my favorite. The wings had wasabi dipping sauce. Oh, and the Cheesy Garlic-Onion Pretzel Bread was awesome. It came with a super rich butter. And Potbelly Sliders (pork belly) –yum!
Then came the entrees. I went with the gigantic Horseradish Crusted Prime Rib. It was bigger than my big fat face. I did well by looking at my plate at the end. But I did put half of it on Todd’s plate.
Todd got the Bourbon Pork Chop, which was also good. But so stuffed, so hard to tell what was going on.
Interestingly, or not so interestingly, the two items they touted as being Guy Fieri’s specialties that thrusted his career –the Vegas Fries (with dehydrated Buffalo wing sauce dusting) and the Mac n Cheese were the less flavortown.
It’s weird. I imagine Guy Fieri’s name would be a huge draw at a place like a casino and Times Square. But at the same time, I don’t think people necessarily respect him as a chef. My friends were making fun of me when I Instagrammed that I was eating there. But I just assume they were thinking it is the same as the Times Square restaurant. Anyway, name or no name, Guy’s Fieri’s Chophouse is truly Flavortown.

Wow, that prime rib is giant! I’m surprised you made it halfway on it.

I don’t think of Guy Fieri as a chef at all, let alone one I would respect. He’s a Food Network personality, and an annoying one at that. I dislike him a lot.

The more famous people become, the more of a target they are. For instance, Thistle claims to dislike Guy Fieri a lot. This article is clearly titled Guy Fieri’s Chophouse:Welcome To Flavortown.
All Thistle had to do was not read it and avoid any mention of Mr. Fieri. No. He or she had to comment on Guy. Why?
This is what the Internet has become lately. Twitter, the comment section under YouTube videos andFacebook are filled with people making rude and unnecessary comments on people they don’t like. Especially people who have no effect on their lives. None.
Pinned several of your great pics BTW

Since you asked… I wrote that comment because I was responding to Jason’s thought. It’s called having a conversation. One person puts forth an idea, another responds to it. But thanks for assuming and attempting to judge my actions.
