I do not do many movie, or food reviews here. Although that would be a great job to get paid for, but after a visit to the doctor for a check up Thursday, I passed a new restaurant, well new to the Dallas area anyway, Five Guys Burgers and Fries. I had heard about Five Guys, heard the burgers were good,, and the fries awesome. So, after getting a good result from my check up, I figured what the heck.
I went in ordered my burger, all topping are free, so you just tell them what you want. I went for the cheeseburger, mayo mustard, pickles, a burger without pickles is unthinkable, tomatoes, and lettuce, and a large order of fries. It took a few minutes to cook the burgers, and I watched their kitchen crew cooking and assembling burgers, cooking fries, etc. They had it down to a science, it is fun to watch people who know what they are doing. Then, my order in hand, in a brown paper sack with authentic grease stains in hand, I went out to the truck, turned on Rush Limbaugh, and dug in.
First off the fries are rockin! Seasoned well, thick cut, and super hot. One thing though, unless you are feeding a small village, a large fry is a meal itself, even the smaller order is huge I am told. Then, I unwrapped the burger, the cheese was melted, sticking to the foil wrapper. My first bite, was good, you can tell they use real ground beef, not frozen, it tasted like hamburgers used to. Like I said, it was good, but, as I continued eating, I found myself falling in love with this burger! In fact it is likely the best burger I have had in years, maybe ever. So, if you like burgers, find a Five Guys and go munch!
