Five guys isn't that expensive

Now hear me out. A little burger is easily the size of a regular one at any other burger joint, and the little fries is probably twice as much. The food tastes so much better than almost any other chain burger joint and is not even close to as expensive as Red Robin, but has such better food. It's a lot better than Culver's, Wendy's, Burger King and kicks the shit out of the travesty that is McDonald's.

People think Five Guys is expensive because they order everything in regular or large sizes and they compare it to garbage like McDonald's. The little burger is the same size but with just one patty and the little fry is enough to split between two people.

Is It Normal?

  • Cheaper than what we get here. Plus, it's good. Only fast food burger I'd get in the US.

    Except maybe whatever that place was in Houston airport. Or the custom built burgers at LAX.

    • Five Guys in the UK has three types of lager on their menu (Bud, Corona and something called Brooklyn Lager).

      You'd have to bring your desert in a hip-flask, though.

        • I don't pick on American beer. I've hated every version of beer I've ever tried, so I shit on all of them.

        • What's wrong with chains? Sadly a lot of the mom & pop places in my area suck.

          • ive done the chains to death in the past and im usually in fairly well to do touristy areas so the restaurant selection is decent

            my only complaint is that the independents try too hard to be creative and end up in weird flavored aioli hell

            thryre more expensive but if im gettin somethin good i dont care i aint poor

  • I haven't been there in years, but yeah they fill the fry carton then the bag, and I think it's all hand made. I think yeah like 10 bucks ish for a meal but you're getting a *real* hamburger and they cut the potatoes themselves

  • I agree that Five Guys is excellent quality and good value for money. I don't see eating there as a lunch thing, though, but more as the main meal of the day. While I really like their burgers, fries and shakes, the quantity and calories mean I'd never consider eating there every day even if one was just around the corner.

    I'm sure that there are a lot fewer burger places per head of population in the UK than there are in the USA. McDonald's is all over the place, Burger Kings are pretty rare outside of big cities, but apart from independent places and a few small, UK-only chains, that's it.

    Five Guys opened its first restaurant in the UK in 2013, and there are now just over a hundred of them for a population of 65 million Brits. We sorta live out in the sticks, and we'd have to drive for like an hour and a half to get to the nearest Five Guys. That's not something we'd do just to get a burger, but we do make a point of treating ourselves when we need to visit the big(ish) city.

  • Most burgers are not 100% beef. And the bun probably has sugar.
