Five Guys Burgers and Fries

So a bunch of people on here always talk about this burger place and how awesome it is. But these people are all far away from me.


But a little while ago, I discovered there's actually one of these places about 10 minutes away from my apartment.


Right now, I am going to get some burgers and fries to see what the hoopla is all about. Wish me luck.

I'm off!

    It is a magical place


    Also, regardless of what size fries you get you will pretty much get the same amount of fries.

    Because they fill up the fry cup

    Then they fill up the bag with fries.

    I get a cheeseburger with ketchup, mustard, and A-1 sauce.

    And if you don't get the cajun fries then you are only depriving yourself of true happiness.

    five guys isn't really too cheap

    well, i guess it depends on your definition of cheap

    say if you get a double bacon burger, fries, and a drink you could easily spend 10 bucks

    and 10 bucks ain't fast food money!

    (nonetheless i love five guys but i love in n out more)

    is a double bacon burger four patties? I thought their regular burgers had two patties



    man I wish they would open in-n-out on the east coast, it would be so worth it

    The most you can possibly spend there is ~8 bucks.

    No human being can eat a large fry by themselves.

    There is no four patty burger, the regular burgers do have two patties but you can order a single patty burger.

    You can also get hot dogs there, which are extremely cheap and taste better than stadium dogs.

    There's a whataburger in B'ham, but I've never been.

    Nor do I have any inclination to.

    Considering I have eaten at Mugshots, Five Guys, and Cheeburger Cheeburger.

    Cheeburger Cheeburger is the best.

    No human being can eat a large fry by themselves.

    I have problems eating the regular fry by myself. And like one of the other posters said, double bacon cheeseburger, fry and drink is roughly 10 dollars, which places it squarely in the "oooh I haven't done five guys in a while let's do that" and not the "I have a lunch break, where should I go?" I just can't justify dropping hamiltons on food very often, especially for...moderately quick food?

    That's why when I eat five guys I get a burger, take it home, and eat it.

    Those burgers stay hot for a long while, you know.
