$40 for one person at Five Guys

Shit is getting ridiculous out here. It costs $40 for ONE person to eat lunch at Five Guys. Other restaurants are no better. I think I’m gonna have to start packing my own lunch for work, I’m losing 2 hours of pay every day just to eat

Can this be fixed? Right now, fast food garbage costs more than most sit down places

          you shouldn't want those things either.
          Stop being a glutton.
          A five guys cheeseburger is around 1000 calories and little cajun fry is around 550 calories.
          A large cajun fry is 1300+ calories....
          That's already a ton of calories for one meal. Unless you're doing OMAD, that's just stupid.
          Let's check how many calories are in OP's order:
          >Bacon cheeseburger
          1060 calories
          >Bacon cheese dog
          670 calories
          >Large cajun fry
          1300 calories
          >Milk shake
          670 calories + at least another 600 calories from the mix ins
          That's over 4200 calories for OP's order.
          Sure, you have the right, but obviously you're going to be paying a lot of money when your daily meal is literally killing you.

          But this is not a gourmet burger place. They do not grind down Chuck, short rib and brisket daily to form into sizeable patties. They are technically a fast causal restaurant, which is what shit like Applebee's and outback are but 5gs don't have bars or waitresses. I guess they could be compatible to chipotle but even they are vastly cheaper

    But question: how fat must one be to eat a burger and a hotdog at the same meal? And iirc, the bacon cheeseburger is two patties, so you're eating TWO burgers and a hotdog. Not too mention a sack of fries and cup of butterfat

        Several. Going to one next week, obviously. But they're not a short affair, not when I throw them nor when I've gone to them. Spreading out a couple burgers (I'm super picky with hotdogs and will not eat them at other people's homes) over several hours is not the same as eating 2 burgers and a hot dog at one meal that almost certainly lasts less than a single hour, if not half that.

    The fries are probably the most cost effective item at Five Guys, especially when you consider how many of them you get with the largest size, and the fact that they are more satiating than probably everything else on the menu.
    Honestly, getting freedom fries ANYWHERE instead of the main dish is a more cost effective option.

    I always thought their regular burger was too much with the two patties.
    You can get a "small" cheeseburger and small fries for around 15 bucks and it comes out to about 1300 calories depending on condiments and how many fries they actually give you.

    It's not all rainbows and sunshine in here either. People do not give a frick about the job. Not just black people either.

    Women start working here and they are busy reading magazines and looking at their nails. They can't be assed to even move their ass. You push them too hard and they just never show up again or answer their phone.

    also
    >lot more people getting into fights. Used to never happen. Now you get some mexican dude shouting about chicken nuggets and it practically getting to knife point.

    The costs are way higher. We charged $15 for a combo, and some guy comes back, throwing the whole bag because it's just a fish sandwich.

    It isn't just the food, it is the workers AND the customers. They are like all lobotomized.

    >weird menu changes that the regulars are complaining about.

    They know something was different in the ingredients. Been working here long enough to know those nuggets and french fries are not the same thing as they were. Even the burgers taste less like meat. They're like spongey now and I would bet you there is way less actual meat in them.

    Management. They don't give a damn. They play dumb and they're just their for a payday. Lot of them don't even make as much money as us who work there.

    It is basically hell on earth. I can say is there is something different going on in these mcdonalds. I don't know what that is.
