Niiiiiiiice. I’ll have two of those and a couple fistfuls of non-allergenically sensitive peanuts, and throw the shells wherever the hell I want.

Five Guys?

I thought they ran all the gay bars out of Time’s Square.

Bloomberg will soon have Times Square cleaned up by removing death factories like that and have the peep shows and sex shops restored. < sarcasm? accurate prediction? only time will tell>

Or on the other hand, have a Bloomburger Deluxe: 1/2 the size, double the price, with a small milk.

Yay to BK for its bacon sundae!!! Bacon goes with everything! But enjoy it while you can before bacon is outlawed by the Emperor...

Five Guys may be the best prepared chain hamburger you can buy. I get a double bacon cheeseburger with onions, jalapenos, and BBQ sauce. I really appreciate they use fresh jalapenos and not pickled. They actually have a little bite to them. The fries are ridiculous. Anyone who doesn’t get a single regular fry and share is an idiot. My buddy and I, both big guys, can’t finish off a regular fry together.

First time I tried Five-Guys, I made the rookie mistake of getting a large order of fries... An Irish acquaintance tells me that these are “proper chips”, but dang — I can’t eat an entire *sack* full...

Five Guys—Great Cheeseburgers. Their fries are wonderful (and mucho plentiful) also. Makes my mouth water just to think of picking up an order.

And (at least where I live) they have great soda dispensers where you can select a good old-fashioned cherry coke (amongst many other flavors).

Runs at least $10 in Brooklyn, so, yeah, maybe. Them there tourists will pay anything for good eats!

First time I tried Five-Guys...

Same story here. Luckily, the pretty young thing behind the register said, "You've never ordered here before, have you?"

I’ve been very disappointed in Five Guys. Burgers have little to no flavor and are usually burned on the edges. In fact, the tomato flavor often overpowers the bland meat. Fried burgers are just not that tasty.

I brought a friend to Five Guys for the first time once. They insisted on paying separately and ordered first. They ordered a large fry and questioned me when I didn’t order any while we were waiting.

The reaction when they opened the bag was priceless.

Or for triple the price you can get a Organic Soy Milk or Evian water.

I’ve been eating at Five Guys for at least the past 10 years (they started locally). ONCE I was disappointed in the burger/fries. Not sure what the problem was. But on every other occasion the burgers/fries were superb.

If you so dislike, tho, why do you find them “usually” and “often” not to your liking ... if I didn’t like them, it would hardly be ‘usually’ nor ‘often.’ They wouldn’t enjoy my repeat business.

Obama would love to eat five guys every night, but Michelle won’t let him.

They should call any sandwich named after Bloomberg, The “Bloomturd”, full of shit just like him, cheese that makes you fart, and ketchup to cover up the bad taste.

Re the Original “Five Guys”. It is right down the street from my house. Eat your hearts out guys. My family has been there so many years that they give us extra fries and burgers for free because they like our business. They also have kosher hot dogs. Life is pretty good at Five Guys.

Because I was trying to give it a chance. Three different locations, four visits, three were piss-poor.

Yes, the tomato’s flavor overpowers the bland meat.

Right on “DUNE” fan. There is no “tomato flavor” in Five Guys meat. It is fresh meat and I’ve never seen any flavoring added to it other than perhaps salt and pepper.

You tell them what you want on the burger.

They are charbroiled which is good for keeping a natural meat flavor in, and to kill any ecoli bacteria on it.

THe meat does pick up the flavor from the broiler fried onions and green peppers, but that is all I’ve ever seen in over 25 years of eating there.

Jake should try wearing his glasses when he goes out. “Rat in a Hat” is not Five Guys.

Five Guys should merge with Big 5.

Then they would be Big 5 Guys.

Every time I have a Five Guys burger and fries I first make sure that I have “911” on speed dial.

Are you sure it's not because they think you've included them in your will? ;-)

Oh, they do that at Five Guys? There are a couple of fairly new ones here in Boise - I'll have to stop in.
