i finally tried a five guys burger. i was meeting a friend down in cerritos, and she suggested five guys, which is a chain in washington, d.c. usually i'm not a fan of the chain restaurant, but i will make exceptions when you hear that it's good.
i ordered the five guys cheeseburger that came with two patties, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, mayo, and pickles for $4.99. if i had known that it was going to be two patties, i would have ordered the little cheeseburger for $3.99.
overall, it was a might juicy burger. each bite melts in your mouth. i thought would be stuffed afterwards, but i was actually completely satisfied. (however, i should mention that i just returned from a 30 mile backpacking trip which depleted all reserves so i found myself eating non-stop.)
we also ordered their fries cajun style. it reminded me of boardwalk fries with a bit of a kick.
i have to say. $4.99 for a burger with all those toppings is a pretty good deal. i would definitely go back again, but i'll probably order the little burger next time.
