Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Have you ever heard of this place??… Well I hadn’t until about a year ago. In the past year, this place has been popping up everywhere being the new big hit in fast food. The first time I ever saw it, I was in Toledo last year and once it went in the shopping center, I kept hearing people talk about it. From there on, people were constantly going there to eat, but I never knew the big deal. So finally, I tried a fry my friend got to see if it really was amazing. To my surprise, it was better than a typical fast food place, but I have yet to try there burgers still. The big fuss about the fries is they are made it a special oil, and then topped with cajun seasoning. Good thought- but I’m not looking to spend $6 to $8 for a burger and fries from a fast food place.

After all this rave in Toledo, OH about five guys, I was home for the summer and noticed others being build. Now there are two within 15 minutes of my house in Kent and Cuyahoga Falls. Again, the craziness of the food continues with my friends back home, but I am yet to pay the high price for a burger, let along eat a burger with that many calories in it.

  1. We’ve tried the one here in Tallahassee and were pleasantly surprised. The burgers seem kinda small but they are surprisingly filling, and the fries are excellent. It’s not something I’d suggest you make part of your regular diet, but you really do get what you pay for and their burgers are worth the money spent.
