Yep, swallowed my pride, admitted defeat, and recognized the fact that there is literally an open and functioning 5 Guys Burgers and Fries about 1 mile down the road, after being called out literally 73 times after my previous post.
So my first impressions? Pretty good, I liked it, and I'll definitely go back. Am I going to run down the street and tell every innocent bystander I see that they have to try it while orgasaming? No, probably not. I kinda feel reaffirmed in that regard.
It's not that the burger wasn't good, I sit here fully satisfied, it's just that, it's not that much better than a Double Quarter Pounder with Mac Sauce, despite costing $2 more. You're either delusional or have never had the afforementioned double qp with mac if you believe otherwise, no way around it.
On the plus side, the fries are fire. Legit magic on the taste buds, it's like they got some unhappy Mick out back peeling the potato as you order. Phenomenal. And they go out of their way to give you extra bag fries, its not just the cup of fries overflowing with a few extra straggling behind, they just legit blanket the bag with fries. Everyone knows bag-fries are the best kind, something about eating straight out of a greasy brown bag just makes things taste better....not a bad idea for a future, terrifically unhealthy food joint.
Overall impressions: Very good, certainly not worth the wait, but it's definitely been added to my regular rotation of quick stop food joints....oh, and it's no Fuddruckers, just saying.
