Say it with me: “Five Guys Burgers and Fries.” Fun, isn’t it? But that’s only the start of the good times with this place. Next comes the joy of custom building your burger. They all come ‘naked’, and you choose from 15 toppings that you can add for no extra charge–250,000 different combinations in all, they claim. Then, while you wait for your order to be prepared, take a dip into the enormous bags of peanuts-in-the-shell to munch (also free). Of course, the real fun is the taste of the food. Everything is fresh–they don’t even own freezers–and prepared with care, including the locally-grown potatoes that are hand cut into some of the best fries ever.
The Northgate location is always busy, what with it being so close to the mall and new movie theater, but don’t worry–there are enough burgers and fries to go around.
