what do you guys this about this place? good burgers or overrated crap?
personally i like them but fuck are they expensive. ends up being 10 bucks for a burger and fries.
That's only the case if you get the double cheeseburger/bacon burger. Try not being such an incredible fatass and go with the single cheeseburger. It's 5 and some change for the burger and plenty of food if you get a small fry with it.
The burger is pretty good, and has some nice customization options.
The fries turn into a pile of mush after a couple minutes.
There are plenty of burger places around that are just as good, if not better so there really isn't any reason to go to 5 Guys unless you really want some peanuts to go with your burger.
>what do you guys this about this place?
Anyway, pretty good but the nearest one is 30 min away in a city with a lot more higher end dining choices so I rarely end up eating there.
I actually like Five Guys, and I would never say that if I didn't think they have a decent product. They are overpriced, but I'd rather eat there than In-N-Out or the other burger places here that are in direct competition with them. I used to like the Habit better, but they've gotten worse and worse, and now Five Guys makes a better burger than they do, which is sad.
Anyway, I usually order a Little Hamburger with "the works" and a Grilled Cheese, and skip the fries altogether.
5 guys is CLEARLY on a different tier than wendy's/McDonalds.
At 5 Guys you get what you pay for, which is a relatively cheap greasy burger. When going out to eat, $8 is still relatively cheap, especially when you don't have to wait long.
for the record i dislike 5 guys and think that its slobbish to eat redmeat from an institute like 5 guys or wendys, but come on. You cant compare the two.
if there was one nearby id eat there more often. i cant handle a double, its too much, i stick to ordering a single.
french fries kinda suck on their own, but if you add vinegar, shit gets real
mcd's claims they use 100 percent beef. you got anything to back up the filler claim, buddy?
i like this in theory but why the fuck does 5 goys only have american 'cheese'? many times i'd thought it'd be great to get a grilled mushroom and swiss burger but they don't have swiss, let alone any actual non-'cheese products'.
>tfw new five guys opening right across from my job
>tfw the owner himself said I'm getting discounts for working nearby
All ground beef contains filler, even that from grocery stores. If only needs to be 40% beef to be considered "beef". Most of the fillers tend to be rice, carrots, onions or oats, instead of some mysterious chemcial "filler"
I like the simplicity and directness of it. Five people in a kitchen selling burgers and fries. And hot dogs I guess. It's like a dollar more but the food's good quality / quantity so whatever. Honestly a burger and fries from McDs or BK looks a little sad next to Five Guys. All of the 'local' places here are priced similarly too so I guess I'm used to it. That kind of meal is more to be lazy and treat yourself to something tasty and filling without having to /ck/ it. I've also had 'gourmet' burgers before too btw that cost twice as much just for the burger and it was a gross puck of raw beef so.
Taco bell was called out in the media for their beef "not being beef" since it fell to like 35%. When its ground, you can sneak in a surprising amount of other stuff.
Pre-ground coffee beans and shredded cheese is also notorious for having a lot of fillers
Their burgers are alright but those fries are dog shit.
I mean you already spend some time eating a few peanuts waiting for your food and then the fucking fries taste like peanuts too. All but maybe a few of them are soggy as a dog's balls after sitting that shit bag.
like you said its expensive as hell but good as fuck
