Last week on the last day of our 3 day weekend, and I had a sudden craving for Five Guy’s Burger and Fries. And so we went!! 😀
So I believe 5 guys originated on the East coast where In n’ out doesn’t exist. In the past few months, 5 Guys is popping out everywhere on the west coast, the first one near me opened up in Vacaville, and I noticed that one also opened in Sacramento. There are also a few back home, theres one in Pleasat Hill, whoever is back home and reading this. GO TRY IT PLEASE.
So this is their delicious Canjun Fries. Sometimes they put too much Cajun seasoning on it, but its truly delicious. At 5 Guys, you will always see a sign that is telling you what farm the potatoes they are using today to make fries come from. You will also see bags of potatoes lying in the store. What is so unique about 5 guys is that when you order fries, they don’t just give you the cup of fries, they give you another scoop full in to the bag. Ross and I have never had to order more than 1 order of fries. Other than fries, they also serve peanuts, you can pretty much eat as much as you want. Once you go in you will see cardboard boxes of peanuts with scoops and bowls inside, and you are free to help yourself to as much as you want.
Here is what I ordered, a little bacon burger with mayo, lettuce and grilled mushroom. OH MY GODDD. so good. So on a usual burger you usually just get the choice of onions, tomatoes and lettuce, but at five guys, you have a huge list of toppings you can choose from. You have the regular list of toppings and you would just tell your cashier “all the way” There are also even more extra toppings like “A1 sauce, grilled onions, green peppers, jalapeno, etc. All of these toppings are FREE. Also, I know my burger here looks like a regular burger you could get at any place, but this is what Five Guys consider a “little burger”, on a regular burger there is actually 2 meat pattes. There are only a 4 different kinds of burgers on their menu, the rest of the menu is like 4 other things, sandwiches and hot dogs. The burger is so delicious, juicy and meaty, you can tell that all the ingredients used are fresh. I don’t even know how to describe this taste with words, you just have to try it for yourself. Hands down, Five Guys Burger is my favorite burger place of all time.
Anyone who gets the chance, YOU HAVE TO GO TRY IT!!!!!
