five guys...

i've heard so much about this damn burger chain from you american bloggers. we recently got one near by and we couldn't wait to try it! we happened to be out with dylan's brother and we had an hour to waste before picking up a friend, so i had the bright idea to go get lunch.

i thoroughly enjoyed taking peanuts on the way out. it *kind of* made up for it being expensive (no, not really)

ok, it was decent and all. and dang, it's expensive. no? his brother actually paid, which was great. i got a baby burger, they each got a regular burger, then 2 pops, and 2 regular fries. it came to $35. that seems like an awful lot. i was in shock when that total came up. sure you get a lot of fries, but it's almost wasteful how much you actually get. my overall thoughts on it? meh, i won't be in a hurry to get back. i think i need to try in-n-out; i hear that's pretty good, too.

I used to love Five Guys, but I haven't been there in awhile. It is pretty pricey!

I really like five guys, but I'm with you, they are pretty pricey for what it is!

I've been eaten there once and was definitely not impressed. There are way better burger joints. There is a place we have here that is simlar called MooYahs. It's WAY better and same concept and super cheap.

In'n'out is 100% better by far. Five guys is overpriced and overrated if you ask me. You can't choose different types of cheese...and I'm not okay with that. The fries are good though. Happy Friday, Bree!

5 Guys seems to have popped up all over NJ overnight- they are everywhere! I don't eat meat so I've never tried, but I hear good things. Shame its so expensive though.

You know what? People are always talking about how great Five Guys is but I have never liked their food. The fries are fresh but way too salty and the burgers always give me an upset stomach. I much prefer Graffiti Burger here in the Midwest.

That's super pricey! I've never tried it but I've heard rave reviews. I don't think I'll be in a hurry to try it out...

Whoa there's a Five Guys around here??? I'm off to Google it... definitely heard enough about it from the States that I feel it's worth a try!

Five Guys is good...but In-N-Out is waaaaaay better! Definitely check it out if you get a chance!

Amber said...

I looove Five Guys, and yes you def need to try In-N-Out!

Definitely try In-n-Out. It's delicious and no way would it be $35 for three people. If you get a milkshake, I suggest neapolitan - they layer chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. So good!!
