Daym Drops' review was a lot more convincing than yours.

I will say that every french fry I've ever had from 5 guys has been soggy and undercooked, nothing like the fry he put next to the camera

Have to be running bad. I've never had a bad experience with their fries.

Never had a Five Guys burger. Always thought they were Hardee's-level horrible for you so I stayed away. Dude convinced me.

even if this is true the online ordering system where you can customize the burger with the exact toppings you want and specify light, regular, or extra for how much of each would push it to good. once you add good fries and a massive quantity to that it becomes pretty elite.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

CDL, you can customize online orders for like anything these days w/ seamless, grubhub, etc.

ikes, i never liked 5 guys but other than that great read

free peanuts add a nice touch but it's not that difficult to find a higher quality burger and that's more important to me (at least it's not hard in nyc between zaitzeff, shake shack, etc). that and it's super unhealthy; if you're going to consume something that heavy there are plenty of options that taste way better.

5 guys nutrition facts

Hamburgers contain fat and sodium. Oh noes.

And yeah shake shack is a great lunchtime option if you feel like waiting an hour.

i think id liken it to chipotle actually. agreeable enough but lol at thinking that it is good. my esteem of anyone who promotes 5guys as "good" immediately falls.
