5 Guys: Best Burgers On Campus?

If you’ve ever heard of 5 Guys, you’ve probably also heard that it has the best burgers and fries around. So many people I know rave about 5 Guys and I felt like I was missing out on something huge so I decided to go there with my friend earlier this week. I wanted to see for myself what all the hype was about.

They have a small menu, with mostly just burgers, fries and hotdogs, which made my decision a lot easier. Apparently, a regular burger comes with two patties and since I’m not a total fatty, I opted for the Little Cheeseburger with just one patty. I could get as many toppings as I want, for free, which is a step above most fast food restaurants. I also got a Little Fry with the cajun seasoning, getting more excited by the minute and ready for my mouth to explode with delicious flavor.

It’s very obvious by the newspaper and magazine articles that decorate the walls that 5 Guys takes their reputation of being the best very, very seriously.

When I finally got my food I’ll admit I was a little skeptical about the growing amount of grease that was gathering at the bottom of my bag. I was scared my arteries might explode on the spot when I took a bite, which is saying a lot because I might be the most unhealthy person I know. My hunger and curiosity got the best of me in the end though.

I suppose my hopes were too high going into it because the burger was just… okay. It was very good, don’t get me wrong, I just figured that there had to be something really special about 5 Guys burgers that put it above and beyond any other. It’s hard to describe because I just felt like the burger was missing something, that magic ingredient that everyone else got that made them think these were the greatest burgers in the world. I think the real winners in this scenario were the fries. Oh man, those were good. I probably won’t go back to 5 Guys any time soon, but if I do I’m definitely opting for the bigger sized fries.
