Five Guys Burgers And Fries: Need I Say More?

Yeah! Look at that melted cheese that has oozed out the side of my Double Cheeseburger from Five Guys Burgers and Fries! Good stuff. Actually they don't call it a Double, they just call it a Cheeseburger. If you want a single it's called a Little Cheeseburger. Part of the wave of good quality or fresh burger joints, Five Guys is actually a national chain with 550 locations in 35 states. That might be a drawback for some people but not me. It's similar to IN-N-OUT that they have no freezers and only use fresh ground beef and cut their fries on the premises, actually the bags of potatoes are stored right out in the open with their peanut oil (see pic below). That's all good, but how does it taste? Damn good! You basically can order the burger any way you want it with most items being at no extra charge. With it's open kitchen area you can watch as they grill up your patties to perfection dropping the first pattie on, then the cheese and the next patty on top of that, better for melting the cheese. My order was kind of ordinary. Lettuce, Tomato, Pickles, Raw Onions, Mayo and Ketchup. Then there's the fries. Oh man they are good. There's a special treat when they pack up your spuds in the cup and put it in your bag, they toss in an extra bunch of fries right on top! How excellent! While you wait for your meal to be prepared there is a bucket of peanuts in their shells that you can munch on. This is a nice little treat especially if you got kids with you. But the main thing is that these burgers are very delicious while being extremely who cares they just taste so good! There are 11 (wow 11!) locations in NYC with another about to open on Fulton Street soon. For more info please check out their website:
