H loves a good burger and fries, so we decided to try out 5 Guys. The place was very clean, and had an open kitchen. There were actually 5 guys working behind the counter!
H also liked the free salted/roasted peanuts.
The burgers are made with 100% fresh never frozen ground beef, and the standard burger comes with 2 patties.
The fries were very similar to New York Fries. What we didn’t like was the soggy buns, due to being wrapped in foil. It made for a huge and messy burger, and I don’t mean that in a good way. The meat was also very bland. I know some would prefer it this way; to taste the actual beef. Even though we limit our salt intake, I was tempted to sprinkle some on. I bit of seasoning would have been nice.
I would suggest asking for the burger to be kept open, and not wrapped. A steamed and soggy bun ruined an otherwise “okay” burger.

Our bill for 2 burgers, fries and drinks with tax was approximately $30.00; a bit steep in our opinion. We weren’t impressed, and I’m not sure if we’d return.
Our favorite burger and fries is actually across the border, at Red Robin, but that’s quite a drive!
