Most of you know that I am a restaurant snob. If not you can see proofHERE.
I've been a huge fan of In-N-Out Burger for several years. To show my support for them, I have shunned Five Guys because I thought it was a rip off of my old favorite.
Then complications started happening for me and my protest. I don't exactly live anywhere near an In-N-Out. Although I do visit whenever my travels allow it. Then Five Guys have started popping up all around our area. The pressure got to me and... I caved. A girl can only be so strong-- alright!
So the Mister and I set out to see what all the fuss was about.
We sampled a few of the menu items. We tried the burgers. Which you must have with EVERYTHING. I love my burgers juicy and dripping with tons of stuff. (Just as a side note the regular burger is a double which we didn't know. You have to order a little burger to get a single. Our puppy was glad we accidentally order doubles and happily finished them off for us.)
We also tried their hot dogs. I'm telling you they weren't your average weenie. It was butterflied, grilled and topped with cheese and bacon. Yowza!
The fries were made from fresh potatoes and cooked to crispy perfection. Word to the wise: You get a bazillion fries in an order. You can have 2 adults share one regular order and still have enough left to feed an angry mob of sea gulls.
We ordered 2 fries (being Five Guy virgins-- we didn't know) and we got creative with our left overs.
We left with happy tummies and a new opinion of Five Guys. We really liked their food. If you've never been, you should give it a try. You won't be disappointed. The only thing they didn't have was shakes. So I'll still have to go to In-N-Out for my shake fix. But hey, at least I don't have to get on a plane to go to Five Guys.
