I love Guy Fieri but this show didn't have enough of him cooking, sharing tips and story telling. The music was way too loud. I didn't expect to need ear plugs at a... continued

It was a cooking demonstration with music playing as well. The drink guy was cool, but the entire show was a bit corny. The venue itself was large and accommodating.

More Information



The Guy Fieri Road Show is a two hour food-a-palooza, which pairs a high energy rock concert with Guy’s culinary krew.  “We’ve been test-driving this concept on a smaller scale and the adrenaline of the crowd is through the roof,” explains Guy. “Putting on a show for my fans that marries food and rock-n-roll with blow-your-mind entertainment is a dream come true.”

Australian-based flair bartender Hayden “Woody” Wood, an effervescent entertainer and educator on all things liquid, will serve as the opening act.  Ryan Scott will be featured as the local celebrated chef, and then Guy will take center stage with an unscripted and wildly entertaining performance, complete with interactive cooking stations, demos, behind the scenes stories from the road and more.

Guy stars in three top-rated shows on Food Network – Guy’s Big Bite, Ultimate Recipe Showdown and one of the network’s most popular shows: Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.  A best selling author, Guy’s second book hits stores in November titled More Diners, Drive-ins and Dives: A Drop-Top Culinary Cruise Through America’s Finest and Funkiest Joints. Guy also co-owns Johnny Garlic’s (3 locations) and Tex Wasabi’s (2 locations) in Northern California.

Born in Modesto, CA, Ryan Scott has cooked and learned in the kitchens of many of the country’s best chefs. He was a line cook at Restaurant Gary Danko, and staged with Daniel Boulud at Daniel in New York, Charlie Trotter at Trotter’s in Chicago, and Suzanne Goin at Luques and A.O.C. in Los Angeles.  In late 2007 Scott was cast as one of 16 contestants on Bravo television’s national, top-rated reality cooking show, “Top Chef.” Shot in Chicago and judged by some of the country’s most famous chefs, the show was an exhilarating, highly educational and singular experience for Scott and his fellow contestants.  Currently, Scott is focused on his catering company Ryan Scott 2go as a Private Chef.
