Five Guys Burgers

Before coming back to Miami my friends had told me all about Five Guys Burgers. They told me of the deliciousness of their burgers so I was filled with excitement and anticipation. Will the burgers really be that good? Will it be love at first bite? Or will my anticipation kill the whole experience and will I be disappointed that the burgers don't taste as good as they had been built up to?

We went to Five Guys and I was nervous. I ordered a cheeseburger and shared the fries with Alex. We anxiously waited for them to call number 83 and nearly ran people over when they did. The anticipation was worth it because these are good burgers. They are juicy, filling, and extremely satisfying. This burger is truly worthy and, for the price, you are better off going to Five Guys than going to Wendy's or any other fast food chain.
I love the fries. They definitely aren't made for everyone as they are fried in peanut oil, but there is a crispness and lack of greasiness in them that doesn't make them taste like they are fried. They taste like real, hearty potatoes.
I completely forgot to get a picture of the sign, but I did get a picture of the inside. The place was FULL of people. There was a line out the door at one point. I've never seen this kind of reaction to a burger.
Five Guys has locations all across the city. I know they have locations outside of Florida so I recommend checking to see if there's a location near you.

I lived in DC for two years. Five guys started in DC (or Maryland or something like that) and they are the biggest thing in the world down there! I moved back to Manhattan, and for some reason, it wasn't the same! I'm glad to hear that they are good in other locations, though!
