A New Burger Tradition

We have started a tradition on Wednesday nights after my son's hockey practice - that is going to Five Guys for burgers and fries. My son absolutely loves it - from the free peanuts to the fresh made burgers, it is a fun post practice routine.

Five Guys Burgers is not fancy and they do not have a large menu - burgers, hot dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches, plus cajun and regular fries and that is it! But what they do, they do well. When you walk in, they have boxes of peanuts for you to help yourself to while you wait in line. You step up to the counter and order, get your cup and fill it up with a drink, then wait for your number to be called and then you eat your food!

The thing that I like the most about Five Guys is that the toppings are free and plentiful. You can get grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, jalapeno peppers, green peppers, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, relish, onions, and sauce all for free and in any combination. They have two sizes of burgers, regular and little - the difference is that little burger is a single patty and the regular is a double patty.

My son always gets a little bacon cheeseburger with mustard, while I get a little bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, tomatoes and mustard, plus we share a small order of hand-cut fries. It is a fun meal for us to share together and we both look forward to our burgers!

All-in-all, Five Guys Burgers is a no frills restaurant that does burgers and fries really well. For the two of us, it costs about $15 and I always know what the quality is going to be. I would definitely recommend Five Guys - make sure you get some peanuts!
