How I heard of this place: The first I’d heard of Five Guys was a couple of years ago when I was told they had a limited selection of excellent-tasting burgers. I hadn’t ever had the opportunity to go until now, when Richard, Ashley and Bayan needed a bite before going to see the movie, “Inception“.
Type of cuisine: Burgers and fries. Other fare includes hot dogs and sandwiches – limited to vegetable and/or grilled cheese.
Ambiance: Simple, casual, unpretentious. The walls and floors are white with smatterings of red and black to accent the space in line with the brand. Five Guys (in this location at least) has customers enter into a line where orders can be placed. Customers are invited to sit or wait by the end of the counter for completed orders to be picked up. Once your food is ready, your receipt number is called and your brown bag of hot goodness is yours for the taking! Condiments are at the end of the counter inviting you to help yourself.
What I ordered: Having just left the large plate of nachos unfinished, I wasn’t hungry enough to place a large order of my own, but sampled the fries and the bacon dog ordered by others. One in our group ordered the bacon dog, one the little hamburger and the other a veggie & cheese sandwich. All three added an order of regular-sized fries.
What I loved: I loved the large size of the cupful of fries and the bacon in the bacon dog! I didn’t have an opportunity to sample other dishes before they were downed, but by the looks of friends licking hands clean, I have to say that the food was satisfying if not completely delicious!
Why I loved it: It’s an easy place to go for quick food without going to the likes of a typical fast food restaurant.
Cost: Average ($3-$6 for a burger)
