Needed to give Five Guys a whirl. So much hype, so many facebook statuses jerking this place off. The first thing that caught my attention when I walked in was the line. Shit was like 30 people deep. I thought I was gonna be stuck behind this group of teenie bopping skanks for 25 minutes who were blabbering about how many varsity basketball players they were gonna suck off that night. Not my idea grabbing a quick burger, but to my surprise it moved along super quick. I went from lined up all the way at the entrance of the joint, to front of the line in 5 minutes tops.
Next came the order…I went basic hamburger w/ lettuce, tomato, pickle, mustard ketchup and a side of cajun fries. To make a long story short, the fries make this place. You can go to any Chili’s or Outback and get a decent burger. The fries are what gives a burger spot it’s identity. Best part of this meal easy. They’re fresh and made in house, plentiful and the cajun style ones are spicy with a nice zing to them. Not those pussy “spicy fries” you get at a pizza shop. The burger was also pretty flavorful, with fresh toppings. It was a nice portion size and not something you have to throw away 1/2 eaten. Pretty easy to down without feeling like you have the McGurgles afterwards. It took me awhile to grub at Five Guys for the 1st time, but I’d have to say it came close to the hype.
