Tried Five Guys for the first time

I hear everyone say this place has the best fricking burgers ever and I was skeptical because I thought it was overhyped but it turns out their food doesn't taste like shitslop

>crispy fries with potato skin on
>free seasoned peanuts
>free toppings of any type (even if the burger itself was overpriced for the size)
>state of the art soda fountain with basically every flavor known to man including Barq's vanilla

If you are wondering what burger I had it was two patties, bacon, mayonaise, ketchup, onions, mushrooms, cheese, and lettuce.

Is there any other restaurants I have to try that people overhype? I haven't had In'n'out either

    Six guys is a little better

      we don't have six guys in my area
      we have four guys but it's not a restaurant, it's a gay bar

      Five Guys and In-n-Out kind of anchor opposite ends of the fast food burger joint spectrum. In-n-Out is by far my preference; their burgers are fresh tasting and delicious (though their fries aren't very good). You should definitely find your way to an In-n-Out as soon as possible.

      Will do anon, thanks. So you are saying the fries at FG were better than their burgers? I can see that. My burger was kinda small to be real it was about the size of a whopper.

      Five guys sucks. Bad soggy as shit fries, everything sort of tastes like oil, and everything is wet.
      I will never understand it.
      In n' out is the only hyped place where I can sort of understand the hype just because the burger was decent for how cheap it is.

      The entire meal (large drink, large fries, and one burger) was about 20-30 dollars. The reason it is soggy, I asked them, is because they dunk their potatoes in water before cookin'em with peanut oil

          They're kinda hard to describe. They're pale and taste very starchy. I think they use a different type of potato than most fast food places, and most importantly they don't soak or double-fry them, they get sliced and go straight in the fryer.

          Yeah, they're relatively thin cut. They're SUPER fresh; you can literally see the kids who work there pass russets through the fry cutter device and drop them into the fryer. Problem is, that doesn't make for very good french fries. You can order your fries well done which usually results in better fries, but they're still not like McDonalds great.

      Used to go all the time when they first opened here like 15 years ago, was only a couple more bucks than McDs or BK and tasted a lot better. Now a simple combo is over $20, their burgers are tasty but nowhere near enough to justify the price. Culver's is the far superior option

      in n out has really really fresh tomatoes, lettuce, and the buns are very high quality. all restaurant quality level. but the meat is thin and cheap like a wet strip of cardboard. five guys is the opposite. more meat more everything but everything else cheap. plus they wrap it in tin foil so it forms into a big wet burger ball.

      I like their burgers but their fries are really doughy every time I tried them. I've had it in Oregon, California and Texas and even if you do animal style the fries are just dull. The first time i gave them the benefit of the doubt because we were basically 3 busloads of soldiers on the way to california so i thought they might have rushed the fries because there were so many orders. But it was the same the other 5 times i've been there at different locations.
      I guess some people like it that way but it's not for me.

        All fast food burgers are below frozen patty shit sold at the grocery, no exception. Even the 5guy shit is unseasoned frozen shit, you can literally see videos of them frying it up on the griddle - no fricking seasoning at all.

        I get shake shack and In-n-Out, they kinda feel like real diner burgers. But any real diner will mog the shit out them. And home burgers always win because you can fricking season them right, and use quality beef. Even better if you use charcoal, because none of them use smoke in their process.

        This is how I know this is a LARP. 5shits do not serve crispy fries, they are limp dick wet potato piles that sogg the bag. I have never been to a 5guys with the crew and gotten crispy fries, ever. Ever.

        Also the soda fountain is at other fast food joints, it's not special.

      Ours is a combo restaurant so it has an A&W in it too. It's the best thing ever. Root beer, greasy fish, cheese curds. It's the bomb. It's not a full sized place so you don't have the corndog nuggets sadly

          That's probably why they wrap it in foil like they do at Braum's. Only problem with that is that the cheese sticks to the foil easily compared to paper.

    People compare in-n-out and five guys because they have similar classic diner aesthetics, but in-n-out isn't really in the same class. It's a lot more like a mcdonalds or whataburger or wendy's or any other typical cheap fast food. The only real comparison you can make between the food from them is that they both serve soggy fries, except that the five guys fries are thick and meaty and soggy, and the in-n-out fries are thin and limp and soggy.

        No, but it's certainly upmarket from mcdonalds/wendy's/in-n-out/dq/whatever. I think even the anti-five guys shills would eat there if it was the same price for a five guys cheeseburger as a big mac.

          For the size of the burger, regardless of how much I enjoyed it, should have only been ten dollars. McDonalds has bigger burgers. I'm pretty sure I could get a similar cheeseburgwich from Bob's Big Boys for half the price

                It was without a shadow of the doubt the same size, or smaller, than a Big Mac. Probably smaller since the Big Mac has that piece of bread in the middle of it.

                For calling themselves shake shack, their shakes were really bad. I'd rather have a mcflurry or frapuccino or some shit. The burger was good but overpriced (although this was in a mall in LA so maybe that's just the location) and the fries had the taste and texture of cheap frozen crinkle fries from the grocery store.

                They're pretty good, but a bit overrated. The burgers are really salty, and while I like potato buns for the taste, they get pretty soggy especially if you get a double.

    For me, it’s six flying Dutchmen from in n out. Can better to get them with grilled onions and ask for some to be cooked “mustard fried”. Also the people that work there are chick fil a tier nice and cool and they will give you free stickers if you ask or a paper hat. But their French fries are sonic-tier (the drive in restaurant not the hedgehog). Unfortunately I live in the southeast so in n out is only an occasional treat on long trips so that makes it more special. Five guys is my favorite burger joint by the house. I always get a double bacon cheeseburger with ketchup mayo mustard grilled onions grilled mushrooms and raw jalapeños. And the Cajun fries, dipped in ketchup and mayo with some malt vinegar splashed on them. Yum. But I do also enjoy the garlic steak burger from steak and shake and the butter burgers from Culver’s. And don’t forget the double patty melt with onions and jalapeños from whataburger. I stay away from McDonald’s and Burger King and all that. Had Red Robin once and I don’t really remember if it was good or not but granted I got it door dashed to a hotel room in Arlington tx on a work trip and I was super high watching wrestling in my room and can’t remember if I even finished the burger. Pic related it’s six fling Dutchmen from the in n out in arlington tx. Best in n out imo is the one by the nugget in Reno nv.

    No one (aside from contrarian homosexuals) ever said that five guys doesn't make good food; they're just absurdly overpriced for what they are. The last time I went to one, probably over a year ago, my burger alone was $13. The next time you go to one, take a closer look at all the reviews and shit they have hanging from the walls. You'll see a lot of reviews like
    >best value! great burgers at a great price!
    and similar, then you look closer and see that they're literally all from pre-2010.

    Pic related opened a location near me recently and aside from making excellent burgers, they use peanut oil to cook their fries and offer them with cajun seasoning which are the main things that make the five guys fries any good. They're also reasonably priced which makes five guys completely obsolete. The only reason I would ever visit a five guys again is if they cut their prices in half. At this point the only thing they offer that I can't get at other fast food places is jalapenos as a topping.

      Burger is probably like twenty something now I didn't look at the receipts. Yeah the entire place from the restaurant to the bathroom was covered in glowing reviews and smiling critics....from 2013 :/

      that joke was old a decade ago man and everyone who tells it says it as if they're the first person to come up with it
      as far as WA burger places go - for me, it's frugals.

      Is frugals cheap? Hence the name. I don't think we have that either.

      I am 100% serious that 5guys do not make good food. The burger is literally unseasoned grease shit. The fries are limp dick noodles that wet the bag. I have always been extremely disappointed with 5guys, especially considering the absurd price. And this was in the US in a non-basketball american area. You have no fricking clue how good burgers are if you think 5guys make good burgers.

      At least In-n-Out and Shake Shack have a decent diner burger that is fricking seasoned and cooked properly. Even white castle does better, and that's a fricking steamed ham of a burg.

    I got Five Guys the other day.
    They have some of the best burgers, but their grilled onions are sad, they don't grill them for long enough.

    I like 5 guys. In fact I worked at one for a while. I know firsthand, their ingredients are pretty good. They use fresh beef and all ingredients are fresh and prepped daily. I feel better about eating there versus really any other fast food place just based on that alone

    I don't understand the love for In n Out. Steak n Shake absolutely dunks on it at the price point.

      Oklahoma. 24-28 dollars. Forgot the exact price.

      All fast food burgers are below frozen patty shit sold at the grocery, no exception. Even the 5guy shit is unseasoned frozen shit, you can literally see videos of them frying it up on the griddle - no fricking seasoning at all.

      I get shake shack and In-n-Out, they kinda feel like real diner burgers. But any real diner will mog the shit out them. And home burgers always win because you can fricking season them right, and use quality beef. Even better if you use charcoal, because none of them use smoke in their process.

      >crispy fries with potato skin on
      This is how I know this is a LARP. 5shits do not serve crispy fries, they are limp dick wet potato piles that sogg the bag. I have never been to a 5guys with the crew and gotten crispy fries, ever. Ever.

      Also the soda fountain is at other fast food joints, it's not special.

      They had crispy skin but they were still floppy from grease. It's kinda hard to explain. Mine were kinda burnt so
