Five Guys earns five stars for taste, service

Allie Wright, Editor in Chief

I was pleasantly surprised by the quick and friendly service alone at Five Guys restaurant. It’s a small burger joint where customers can dine in or take out, selecting from a variety of burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, and their allegedly famous fries.

As a vegetarian, the options were limited as usual. Although there were no veggie patty options, on the sandwich menu are four options: the veggie sandwich, the grilled veggie sandwich with cheese, grilled cheese, or a BLT. I went with the veggie; and although I was tempted by their lettuce wrap option, I went traditional and chose the bun.

I believe it was the better option, bringing out the flavors of the savory grilled mushrooms and onions as a well as various other choices of “free toppings.” Considering my laid back option for a sandwich, I thought a kick would be nice with a side order of their Cajon fries. Although a little salty for my liking, the fresh cut fries left a delicious Louisiana flavor in my mouth.

The prices were not beyond what I expected, but still on the higher side. I left with my dinner, all under $10. Even if the options were limited as a vegetarian, I was satisfied with any options at all, considering it’s known for its not-so veggie burgers. So with good food and great service, I would give Five Guys a 5 out of 5 stars.
