ah, the eternal struggle continues. burgers and fries. who does them right? who does them wrong? who will reign supreme? 5 guys? in n out? sonic? smashburger? currently, burgers are trendy. they are cool to make. you can do crazy things to them, or you can do them classic, yet perfect them. fries. they can be thin, thick, hand cut, IQF, double fried, russet, kennebec, sweet potato. you name it, someones doing it. so if you live anywhere that has a general population over 5000 people, you probably will have a 5 guys popping up in your hood soon. they are like fucking bunny rabbits right now. after hearing many testimonies from people that enjoy it, hate it, i decided it was time to decide for myself. FOREWARNING, i love in n out.
ok, so, you walk in, and theres quotes all over the walls about where their burgers have been voted the best, nationwide. blah blah blah, oh, whats this? i big ol put of roasted salted peanuts? ill take some!
the menu is small. burger. cheeseburger, bacon cheeseburger. hot dog. bacon dog. blah. whatevers. we get it, simple menu, focus on quality. im down. just like in n out. slightly bigger menu though. you can order your burger with any of the toppings you want with no extra charge, which i liked. i got mine with hot sauce, jalapenos, mayo, bacon, and grilled onions.
since they advertise the fries in the name, you would think they were amazing. well. if you consider soggy bland spears of potato as amazing, they i pity you.
my judgement stands as this. if you want a decent burger by itself with some decent toppings, go to 5 guys. if you want a great burger, with great french fries, go to in n out. im not gonna tell you how to eat, but thats just how i see it.
