>>7270370 Yep. I saw people raving about five guys on the internet for years then it finally came to Canada, so I went there a couple months after it arrived...
13 bucks for an A&W sized burger (which tasted worse) and way too many shitty fries. Not even a drink. Nowadays it's probably 16 for the same crap.
Fatburger arrived and it was ten times better for a little bit cheaper. Don't get why no one ever talks about Fatburger. It's the same expensive type burger chain but sooooooo much better. I don't understand the hype for five guys. It's garbage.
If I want to pay that much for a burger, I'm going to Fatburger or an actual restaurant, both where I can also have a beer and watch the game.
Fell victim to all the hype on here and tired of seeing all the pictures of their burgers so I decided to give it a try.
1 double cheeseburger, 1 medium fry, and a large drink came out to about $17.00 usc. Snacked on some "free" peanuts, although at those prices, they are not really free. Got it to go so as I headed home I grabbed some fries to check em out while they were still fresh. Very disappointed with them. They were soggy and sad. Some asshole slammed on his brakes in front of me causing me to do the same and the bag got launched to the floor spilling the fries everywhere. They were so shitty, I wasn't even phased at their loss. Expected some super burger to come out of the wrapping but was met with an average burger at best.
Definitely not worth the $ and will never go back again. That place is all hype.

The marketing & hype got me in their store.... once. The menu board had many burgers with 2 digits left of the decimal.. Meh, was willing to pay top shelf prices for a big burger. Nope -- ended up with, basically, a triple priced double quarter pounder.
I'm cool with it. Good jobs guys, you did hook me once..
I am just amazed at all the slobs that march right back in. I guess people are willing to pay >$15.00 for a lunch where they get typical fast food, but don't feel they bought it from a fast food place.
>>7275590 Wendy's is good but my food gets cold by the time I get from the register to my seat. (They use cold refrigerated tomatoes, onions, pickles, lettuce, etc) Five guys is delicious but poor fags love to bash it.
>>7275621 If it was delicious, I'd defend it. It's not, it's average. It even gets a little negative because I know they fucking soak everything in butter or oil and it still isn't above the cleaner places where you can eat a burger without feeling like you have to wash your hands.
Fuck I hate Canada. I paid 13 for a single cheesburger.
>>7275711 Not poor at all. It's just garbage. Would rather go to an actual restaurant and get a way better burger for the same price while I can watch the Oilers game and have some beers with my friends, instead of staring out the window at the parking lot eating peanuts and shitty burgers and fries
>>7273651 I get the number 1 at chick fil a just the original with fries and a drink and it's like $6.50 or some where right around there. I really haven't found any place that is a better deal with the same quality of food
hahahahahah. I never use healthcare, so it's a waste of money, plus everything costs five times the price here, and I make absolutely nothing. The only "health care" I would ever use is dentistry, and that isn't free, it's fucking expensive. Haven't been to the dentist in 9 years because no job I have covers it. I pay out the ass for taxes and everything else, and can't even go to the dentist, what's the fucking point? I can't wait to move to freedomland.

>>7277977 It's a nice idea but neglects the massive increase in the amount of training between a 19th Century and a 21st Century doctor. A modern nurse would is better trained than doctors were in those times and the cost of education is higher too.
>>7277993 >We'd also be on our own to distinguish between quacks and competent medical professionals. There would be agencies like the BBB and underwriters laboratories to do that. Also there would be medical schools and licenses and people wouldn't use doctors that weren't licensed by these schools.
Anyway the FDA and AMA are absolutely horrible and have killed countless people there's got to be a better way. and state run healthcare is not the solution.
>>7277993 >hello potential doctor, may I see your medical degree from a reputable institution of higher learning >sure, here it is >thanks, now I feel comfortable seeking medical care from you Doesn't seem too difficult to me.
>>7278062 >them being discouraged from trying proven treatments Oh fuck off, the biggest reason people try these supplements in the first place is because conventional doctors failed them.
>worse, being harmed by them. People are harmed far more often from prescription drugs. Supplements have a much less chance of causing harm and even if they did cause harm people have the right to risk it, if it could potentially help their disease.
>>7269830 Cause one of their burgers has a half pound of meat on it. Go to another fast food chain and try to get a half pound burger or as many burgers as you'd need so that you have a whole half pound of meat. I garentee you it's near the price of a five guys burger
Tried five guys recently for the first time The burger I got was pretty good, it comes in a reasonable size and the choices for condiments are pretty solid (no burger sauce but who cares) , I can see why folks like it. The shakes they have seem good as well, the banan shake I got went great with the salty food. I decided to get a large order of Cajun fries to find my bag filled to the brim with them, while they were good they were a bit overspiced. Tried some of my friends normal fries and those are actually really good-- they have the peanut flavor from the oil they were fried in and are nice and crispy. While on the pricier side their generosity with the fries and the choices in condiments for the burger make it a fairly solid place to eat
Attention passportless fast food shitheads. It's shit. All of it. So is In and Out and whatever other regional rivalries you guys have. Try getting out of your home state and you might realize that putting different words on the label slapped on your shitfood doesn't change shit.
