Watch out, In-n-Out, you've got some stiff competition with stiffer and better fries!
The hamburger and french fries are tasty, however, when you get diarrhea soon after eating your meal and spoils your day, you don't get a recommend from me.
There are a few things I just really love in a restaurant, and Five Guys seems to suit my taste in a lot of ways. First of all, you can see the kitchen perfectly and the (awesome) health inspection reports are clearly displayed. This makes me feel so much more comfortable eating the food...when I know exactly how it has been handled.
Second, the service is extremely reliable. Yes I know it is only counter service, but I've never once had anyone be rude or impatient with me here...even when I'm constantly changing my mind about the toppings I want on my little cheeseburger.
Third, I love that you pick your toppings exactly, that way there are no surprises. Sure, in fancy sit-down restaurants I'll let the chef do his/her magic on my place. When I'm tired as hell or hungover and looking for a greasy fix, I want to know exactly what's going in my food.
Fourth, and I know I may be alone on this, I like that you order your burger separate from the fries. I am not a big fries fan, and it seems like every burger has obligatory fries sitting right beside it. I think it's nice to be able to order them separately, or in my case, not usually order them at all.
The only reason this place doesn't reach 5 stars in my book is the amount of grease. It may be a little over the top for some people. Although satisfying, I do worry about the massive harm I'm causing to my arteries before taking that first, delicious bite
