Fun Fact: I LOVE Five Guys! I’ve heard mixed reviews online and in person but I think it all comes down to what you’re expecting from the experience. If you’re looking for another low cost fast food joint you will likely come away feel totally robbed but if you’re looking at it as a restaurant (think Nando’s, Frankie&Benny’s) you’re more likely to enjoy your visit. If you’re a plain burger and chips kinda guy you also won’t get the most from this place, it’s a lot to spend for something basic but if you like a burger the way YOU LIKE IT you will probably love the chain! I’m not sold on their fries but their burgers are large and tasty enough to do as my meal. Their drink selection is insane, from the bottomless (of which there are hundreds to choose from at the magic Coke machine) to beer and milkshakes that are just as customisable as their burgers it’s definitely a departure from fast food as we know it.
My burger of choice is the little bacon burger with mushrooms, ketchup and mayo but there are SO many toppings to choose from, all of which come at no extra cost so you can see how you might not get your moneys worth if your order it plain. Everything is fresh, they pride themselves on this, hanging reviews that state ‘not a freezer in the joint’ and signs announcing which local provider their potatoes were shipped in from that day. Overall it’s great, not a day to day eatery but a treat everyone can enjoy.. just don’t expect th chips to be cheap!
