Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Will and I decided to drop by the new Five Guys Burgers and Fries in the neighborhood and see what all the hype was about. It is always crowded, and we had heard good things, so I was excited for this tasty treat. We split the bacon cheeseburger, and as an after-thought, ordered some of their "famous" fries to accompany our meal. The burger came with grilled onions and mushrooms, which I was happy to see were included without an additional charge. (The burgers themselves are pricey to begin with. I think ours was somewhere around $5.99) The burger came out warm and juicy, but quite greasy. (The fries are even worse.) The onions are diced, and therefore don't stay in place very well. It was okay, but certainly didn't live up to it's reputation of "better than In And Out Burger." You can find a better burger somewhere less crowded.


  1. That burger has "heart attack" written all over it!! Holy cow!! ;) I don't think I could even open my mouth that wide!

    p.s. Why do things that have "heart attack" written all over it look so dang good?!

  2. Good to know! I've heard they're amazing and there's that new one by University Mall. But now I don't feel like I'm totally missing out. :)
