Five Guys

Five Guys Burgers & Fries on Urbanspoon

nut_allery_allery_icon_smallAs Sheepie and I walked into the restaurant, I saw boxes of peanuts (in their shells) with scoopers and little paper bowls. Sheepie asked if it was just on for display or they were for sale, and the staff kindly told us that they were complimentary. Woo hoo for those that love peanuts, but boo hoo for those with peanut allergy! If you are severely allergic, it’s best to stay away from this restaurant! We were also informed that all the fries were deep fried in peanut oil, so no fries for me :(

The food took forever for a fast food looking place. The wait seemed more like at a sit-down restaurant, but we waited by the counter for the burger. Definitely not a place if you want something on a rush. The interior is retro and distinctive with their red and white tiles, and 1980s music playing in the background.

The entire burger seemed soggy and deformed compared to other burgers which can keep their shape till the end.

I took a bite, but nothing extraordinary. I was expecting a nice charcoal-ed meat, but it wasn’t that strong. Sheepie didn’t mind.

The drink stations seemed like it could really use some repairs. Both stations were not functioning properly :( So much for free refills. idearabbit-fiveguys3idearabbit-fiveguys4

I myself wouldn’t return, only because there’s peanuts everywhere! I’m not severely allergic (like can’t breath in air with peanuts), but I’d like to stay away if I can. Sorry Five Guys. Plus, the burger didn’t wow me, and for about the same price for a regular sized burger, I’d rather eat it at a sit down restaurant like Red Robins or White Spot which is much tastier.
