5 Guys is all the rage these days and although I think they make a tasty burger and fries there must be something about the peanut oil they use that throws me off and leaves a strange after taste in my mouthal region.
I like the simple menu and that they offer malt vinegar to be poured all over their tasty fresh fries but I can do without the free peanuts and the walking hazard that ensues. I suppose since the wait time is rather long the cracking of the peanuts help ease the pain. I think if they added a few more guys to the staff the order wait time would be somewhat tolerable.
I give them 3.5 out of 5 Burgers. I would go again if it was in my path and someone else was payin’. -hWild
UPDATE 1/25/16: The 5 guys near my now serves shakes and I must say this is a game changer. The combination of a chocolate malt shake with the burger and fries can’t be beat.
I now raise my score to a 4 and a half out of 5 burgers.
