This book looked like it was hastily thrown together. Also, please spend the extra money on color pictures. It goes a long way. While on the subject of pictures, it would have been nice if they had included pictures of the recipes in the book. There were a lot of images, but they were all screen captures from the different DDD episodes and terrible ones at that.

I appreciate the index in the back of all the various restaurants, but I would have like it to be arranged by state order, not alphabet...more
I usually like "my" cookbooks to show color photos of each recipe made, but this is not your standard cookbook. This is a compendium of many of the "joints" that Guy has visited on his show, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, and features one recipe (with occasional "sides") from each place.

The book is divided geographically, and then for each place, is the name, a box with address / website to "Track it Down", a brief description or history of the place, Krew Notes (from his crew), and a restaurant...more
I expected a whole heck of a lot more out of this cookbook. First, the recipes were good, but appeared like they could be more difficult for the everyday cook to prepare. Second, the book focused more on telling the "restaurant story" than on the preparation of the food. There wasn't even any pictures of the completed products. I ended up walking away with a small handful of recipes I would prepare.

I'm not to sure what you can say about this. It is predictable, simple and like the written version of the TV show.
another great reference book from Guy - lots of recipes for trying out....
Some good recipe ideas.
