This past weekend while looking for roller skates at Sports Authority I stumble upon this place called Five Guys Burgers and Fries joint. As I walked inside all I saw was magazine reviews and articles hanging on the walls, with delicious looking burgers. I waited on line, which was somewhat long. I looked at the menu to see what else was on there besides burgers and fries, hot dogs was the other option.
So I had a cheeseburger* with sauteed onions, lettuce and tomatoes and BBQ sauce. All toppings are free, and they have enough toppings to choose from. I also got medium fries and a fountain soda with my order. The fries are fried in peanut oil, so if you are allergic to peanuts, you might want to skip the fries. *A Cheeseburger is 2 patties (like the pic above), if you want 1 patty you should order the “Little Cheeseburger”
On the back of the cash register you see 5 guys in red shirts, hence the name of the place: Five Guys.
I get my order, I open the burger, and it looks like a double quarter pounder with cheese, only better. The bread is toasted and small, but very filling. You can really savor the burger to the very last bite. I was stuffed, in a good way, I’m sure my belly felt the same way. I just had to remind myself to eat salad for the rest of the week and do 100-200 sit-ups.
Anyways, if you are around a Five Guys burger place, and you are in the mood for some really good burger, pay them a visit, I’m pretty sure it’ll be worth it.
