My First Time Experience at 5 Guys Burgers.
#1
thumbsdown 
I don't remember which thread it was but recently someone brought up 5 Guys. I think it was on a McDonald's thread maybe? 1dunno1 I'm too lazy to go look for it.

I had never been to 5 Guys but had heard more that one person say how great they were.

So today I looked up the nearest 5 Guy (20 minuets away) and off I went.

I arrived around 1:30pm, wanted to avoid any lunch time rush.

I walked in, the place was empty except for two couples sitting at tables.

Looked around and the first thing I noticed is the place was filthy. Shit all over the floor, shit on all the tables.

Anyhow, I went up to the counter and ordered a bacon cheese burger, nothing fancy, lettuce, onions, and bbq sauce. Also ordered the cajun fries. I assumed those were the "spicy fries" @~mc~ said were so good.

Oh and a large drink.

Chick behind the counter rang it all up and told me the bill was $18 and change. I almost hit the floor.

I bit my tongue, took my drink cup and ticket and found a table to sit at, a table I had to clean off myself. That really pissed me off.

So I sat there, sipping on my Dr. Pepper. And sat there and sipped, and sat there and sipped, refilled my drink and sat there and sipped.

I watched too. They cared more about the take out orders than they did about the people who were there to eat in their establishment.

Finally, after what felt like an unacceptable amount of time for a damn burger and fries, they called my number.

No tray, nothing but a brown paper bag.

So I grab my brown paper bag and go back to the table I had to clean and looked inside. The burger was at the bottom and a pile of fries were sitting on top. I had to dig past a pile of hot fries to reach my burger. That pissed me off too.

So I dig the burger out of the mound of fries, unwrap it and god damn if they didn't forget the bbq sauce. The burger was dry. It also looked like a "I don't give a fuck" person made it.

You may not believe this, but I'm not a person to complain when shit doesn't go right with my meal at a restaurant, I just deal with it and write that place off as somewhere I'll not eat again.

I go and get some ketchup from the pump and put it on my burger.

It wasn't a bad burger, I've had worse, the fries were good but not $5 for a regular sized fry good. For sucks sake potatoes are cheap. I brought the majority of the fries home and the ole lady tossed them in the oven and ate them.

Was it worth $19 dollars? Hell no! I can go to Red Robin and get a better burger, unlimited steak fries, a clean table and a waitress filling my drink for the same money. Hell, I can go to Whataburger and feed both myself and the ole lady for $18 and it's just as good as what 5 Guys offers.

So... You folks eating 5 Guys are getting screwed, first and last time I eat their over priced burger and fries.

If you want a good burger, just make it at home. For the price you paid, you could double the patty and load that sucker up with bacon and 3 different cheeses. Slap it on a brioche bun and you're good to go. Wink

I agree with this 1000%

We do plenty of burgers on the grill at home, probably too many for some folks. Sometimes though you like to leave the prep and cooking to someone else when you don't have the time.

At those times...expect disappointment.

5 guys sounds kind of gay.. Hiding3

That’s about what you would pay here, in oz.. I go to the burger project.. so good..

It’s fast food, but with slow food values. Meat is from Tasmania and it’s good.. You would never clean your own table here. It’s not table service though.

I've researched Burger Project and damn if they don't look good. But so did 5 Guys.

I hope you live in a big enough place because I'm coming to stay with you while I check out Burger Project. Troll2

That place sux big time!!! As you mentioned, way too pricey as well...I have had better burgers at the local gas station grill...the only other 'chain' burger restaurants in my area that have decent burgers are Red Robin and Culver's and BT's Burgers...
