Five Guys Burgers and Fries – Not a Hole in the Wall but Worthy of Mention

12 Apr

Five Guys Burgers and Fries is a hamburger joint located all over the United States, so in no way should this place qualify to be featured on Hole in the Wall. Why you may ask than am I featuring them? Simple the atmosphere, the service, and the qualityΒ  of food. Although this may be a semi-major chain, all those aspects are reminiscent of a nice family run greasy spoon.


Five Guys serves burgers, fries, hot dogs, veggie sandwiches, and grilled cheese. Their burgers can be ordered as a Little Cheeseburger (hamburger etc.) which comes as a single patty or as just a cheeseburger (hamburger etc.) which would be a double patty. The burgers cost a flat rate and you are then allowed to add as many of their condiments and toppings as you like, free of charge, which include the basics along with grilled onions, mushrooms, BBQ sauce, jalapenos and much more.

The burgers and fries are fresh, not frozen. Many places I’ve seen claim this, but this is the one place I did not doubt the authenticity of that claim. My patty tasted fresh, moist and, although this may seem derogatory, was falling apart. It was not overly tight or processed. The french fires although I wish they had been a little crunchier had good flavor. The Five Guys I visited had listed on the wall where their potatoes for the day had been shipped from. For free they also had peanuts that you could scoop on your own and munch on while you waited. Little Cheeseburger

Now for why I care to talk about them, since they are against all things I’m trying to feature, the service. The young girl working the cash register was very kind and knowledgeable. She talked me through the entire ordering process as if you haven’t been there before it can be a little confusing and intimidating. Then what really set it off for me was the manager or whom I’m assuming was the manager. He walked around among the tables asking all the guests how their meal was, if he could get them anything. He delivered orders to peoples’ tables and offered to clean up as they were leaving. He had an awesome demeanor and I have never received service like that at any other fast food chain.
