Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Any place that can make me a made to order burger fresh and have it ready to stuff in my face in less than two shakes is a-ok in my book. Five Guys Burgers and Fries has a wide open kitchen where you can see the hustle and bustle of your burger cooked from start to finish. The crispy bacon is sitting in a HUGE basket ready to go. (Aside, I’d love a bacon basket in my kitchen.) The burger guy is grillin’, flippin’ and scrapin’ non-stop. The fry guy literally has 10 baskets going from prep to fry to rest.
We ordered “little” bacon cheeseburger with “everything,” which means, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickles, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, ketchup and mustard. Keep in mind “little” only means 1 beef patty vs. 2 for the regular burger. We also shared ordered a regular sized order of CAJUN fries. Always a fan of any cajun seasoning, we ordered those over the regular five guys fries. As I watched them layer all the ingredients fresh and wrap it up, I hoped that they wouldn’t let it sit too long and let things get soggy. Soggy texture is not my favorite texture at all. Happy me, they quickly packed up and delivered everything in a bag that we ripped open immediately to devour the food.
The bite of all the fresh ingredients was fantastic, however, here are my two gripes:
– I wish that they toasted the bun because I like my bread toasty and able to hold all the wet ingredients to the very last bite.
– I wish that the fresh cut potato fries were extra crispy. I think that being so thick and fresh they release too much moisture and end up limp and soggy.
Conclusion: I love that there are so many extra ingredients to add to your burger and the staff is super efficient in delivering the food.
