Let's start with Five Guys Burgers. One opened around me a few years ago. I just tried it on Friday. I loved their small simple menu, but I did have to ask what a 'small burger' was compared to the regular burger (one patty not two). While I was at it, I figured I'd try some fries so I ordered a regular size Cajun fries ($3.29). When my food was ready I grabbed some napkins and headed to my car. It smelled delicious. I was going to wait till I got home, but I couldn't. I started with a fry...I could not believe the quantity of fries in my bag. I thought, wow, if this was 'regular' I can't imagine how many are in a 'large'. I could have went with an extra small (not sure if they come smaller than regular, wasn't listed on the menu). The fries had a great taste and a nice kick. I couldn't wait to taste the burger. I got mine with cheese, jalapenos ketchup and fried onions ($5.09) - I have to say I really liked it. It was cooked perfect for me, the bun was soft, the burger was flavorful. It was a really good fast food burger. Yes, fast food...the patty was thin - reminded me of McDonald's, college food, or a burger at a free BBQ. It seemed fresh, I enjoyed it way more than McDonald's where it is all smooshed together. I wondered how delicious and filling the 'regular' burger would have been. I had a lot of left over fries, but in the end, I liked Five Guys for a quick bite.
