Everybody needs a good burger from time to time and I am no exception. I am constantly searching for a good one. I find the usual suspects like The Vortex, Highland Tap and Ann’s snack shack way overrated. I’d been hearing some buzz about Five Guys Burgers which is a chain out of Washington. I was curious to see if it was worth the hype. I met a friend for lunch the other day. Nothing is frozen…they don’t even have freezers in the store. All the toppings are free and prices are pretty reasonable. I got a regular and some fries to share with my dining companion. The fries are plenty for two. The regular actually has two patties. Get the small if you want a tinier bite. The burger was good. The buns were a bit cold since they were left at room temperature but it did not affect the taste at all. A very good burger. Worth the drive. The fries were awesome. The were not greasy at all and perfectly dry inside. They were so crisp and wonderful. I will definitely be going back. Give it a try.
