      I prefer Backyard also just because it isn't as bad for you and is grilled, but I had never had a burger you could taste as much as the 5 guys...I don't know what they did to that meat but it tasted awesome

      A Five Guys opened one here about three years ago but I never ate there because it was always really grungy/dirty inside. About a month ago, another one opened up, so last week I gave it a try and came away suitably impressed. Their fries were pretty good, not quite as jaw-droppingly-amazing as I was expecting considering what I've heard, but then again I have yet to try them cajun style The burger was fantastic, easily the best fast-food burger I've ever had. I got it with lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapenos, and BBQ sauce. As soon as I unwrapped it and saw that the jalapenos were FRESH and not some canned crap (and the other veggies were fresh too, of course) I knew it was a good sign.

      If you want a good burger try Poncabird Pub down in Baltimore right off of poncabird pass. If you go through 895 tunnel its the first exit right by the big Peterbuilt dealer. It will blow 5 guys out of the water and the place has been voted Baltimore best for a few years. Just bring your appetite b/c they are 10 oz.

      Two of these joints within a 10 mile radius from my work.
      The fries are so so good.
      Turn down for what?

      We wanted to hit this last time I was down in Jax Beach. Everyone said it was great. We were hungover, and had a six hour drive ahead of us, so we thought it'd be a good idea to skip it.

      Went back today for lunch...they forgot the hot sauce on my burger and the bun was really mushy this time around...still not too bad though. They were slammed when I got there so I think the quality suffered when they were trying to rush everything out.
      Tried cajun fries this time and they were pretty good [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I went last night - it looks EXACTLY like the one I posted. I have a sinus infection so my sense of taste was severly diminished and it was still insanely awesome. I'm going back there every weekend this summer fo sho

      That one looks darker than ours. I think Zedcorrado had the same one pictured. The burger is very juicy. It tastes different than even burgers I have made myself at home. We perceived this to be freshness, perhaps they are never frozen? There are no trays, so the burgers are wrapped in foil. My only issue with this, is that the burger gets soggy fast. The fries are freshcut. The seasoned fries seem to have old bay on them which is fine by me. The burger is about $5+ , the fries are ~$2, so with a drink, this meal was around $10. Not cheap, but you get free refills, and the burger is really fresh and tasty. They need to get trays. For $10, I dont want to have to eat out of a bag. I will be going back, but I wouldnt drive the 25 minutes just to go there specifically.

      Just remember, never order more then one regular fry per two people.

    22. 04-08-2007 03:15 PM #47
      It is a little sloppy but the taste is so different. They are either extremely NOT lean or they could have something else ground in with the meat. I thought the tinfoil was cool to keep it warm, and yes on the fries, 2-3 people can share a regular fry

      Had it tonight.
      It was really great. Not as sloppy as the picture above, and not as soggy as others have described. I got the double (normal) bacon cheeseburger with sauteed mushrooms, sauteed onions, bbq sauce, and. hot sauce. They didn't skimp with the toppings either. Meat was juicy.
      Fries were awesome. Didn't try the malt vinegar over the fries. I will try it next time. And there will definitely be a next time in the near future.

      Five Guys definitely takes a different approach to burgers than most chains. One thing you realize quickly about most burger joints is that they're not in the business of selling burgers... they're there to sell you consistency and image. Five Guys is never consistent. Go during the lunch rush, or to a new location that's still getting "into the groove" and your burger might be sloppy or they might miss a topping. They also have no image... no games for the kids, no mascot, no decorations, just red and white tile, peanut shells on the floor, little shaky wooden tables.
      As far as the food itself, there's no real secret to it. Burgers and grilled toppings are just cooked on a big grill. The meat is 100% fresh, never frozen, with the patties made on location. The fries are cut on location and fried in 100% peanut oil. Buns all come from one specific bakery.
      Five Guys is the only fast food I'll go out of my way to eat. Usually I only eat fast food as road food. I hope my post doesn't take the magic out of the experience for anyone, because there really is something great about them that I can't even replicate at home.
