Five Guys
~ Worldwide ~

On the way to Burning Man, passing through Fort Collins, Colorado – my travel mate introduced me to this fine Burger Joint. Freshly cooked and prepared, there is a bit of a wait, so not your atypical fast food chain – but higher quality and creation. They are a fast growing chain, casual diner style with that 60’s-80’s decor. Free peanuts to snack on while you wait. Originally was called “Five Guys Burgers and Fries” it has been shortened to “Five Guys”. They focus on hamburgers, hot dogs, and fries. Their headquarters is located in Lorton, Virginia and opened their first location in 1986 (Virginia). Today they have over a thousand locations within the United States and Canada. (2018)

I’ve had the pleasure of dining in and take out, as well as delivering for them. The burgers and fries are great. I have yet to try the hot dogs.

Ah Belgium Fries. Poutine. Gravy/Curds/Potatoes/Oh My! The french fries are to die for. The Poutine …. mmmm spectacular. But then again, I’m a big fan of Poutine, which is a Quebecoise dish I can’t get in the States. But popular in Canada, especially amongst the French Canadians. To the level that even most McDonalds in Canada serves it. But here? You’re getting your best poutine experience you can have outside of Quebec. Fries everywhere and a great place after clubbing to grab some good grub. Beats pizza. Lots of dipping sauces for your fries. Curries and peanut sauces are wonderful. Its a small place/hole-in-the-wall with very little space to dine, but at 3 am, that really doesn’t matter. Great place! Rating: 4 stars out of 5. Revisits: 7/4/09 – Fabulous as ever. Fritz’ just encourages my crazy cravings for poutine. Delicious! Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
