Some people seriously think this is better than In-And-Out? I'm aghast.
It's not a terrible burger by any means, but it's nothing special. It tastes like a glorified White Castle burger. I am not knocking White Castle. The Castle is a nice little fast-food burger that many people on the East Coast love because it reminds them of their youth. NO ONE would ever call it a gourmet burger, but that's what people who review 5 guys call their concoction of meat.
It's twice the price and half as good. That can't be a winning combination, but the chain is growing like wildfire. If you wanted to pay that much, you could pay a little more and get a proper gourmet burger from a real restaurant.
The fries are good, but they pale in comparison to In-And-Outs.
You order a regular hamburger and they give you...what's this....TWO patties? I didn't ask for two patties. "Oh, but sir, that's how we do that here." Jesus. You might have warned me before I opened it up and thought you gave me an extra patty because no one else wanted it.
In order to get a 1 patty burger, I have to sound like a fruit-cake and order a "little" hamburger. In-And-Out calls it a double-double. It makes sense. Double means twice as many. 2 patties. Not one.
Have any of you eaten at this place?
Did you enjoy it?
If you've eaten at In-And-Out how would you compare the two?
Has the world gone insane?
- I ate at 5 Guys and deemed it is not nearly as good as In-And-Out.
