The bacon cheeseburger with fries meal has over 2500 calories.  they might as well leave that ambulance there at all times.

Certainly better than any fast food burgers, but not the be all/end all. Anyone with decent BBQ skills - not TA culinary skills, mind you - can make a better burger.

you get free peanuts to snack on /.... but as far as burgers its either a single or double patty, and unlimited toppings , so you basically make your own burger combo.

i throw a ton of toppings on it


dont go for the large fries, the regular fries are plenty for 2 people

Eat the large fries and you're gonna be nauseous after. Too greasy, I throw up everytime after eating there.

So good!!! Love that place.. and for a burger place, they use "all natural" products, so it's not as bad as other places.... take that with a grain of salt lol

That's one of the biggest problems with junk, for me. I can eat thousands of calories in ten minutes flat yet I'm hungry an hour or two later..

Post by: Overload on February 01, 2012, 08:14:22 AM
I think they are one of the best burgers.

There are a few local mom & pop burger joints that blow 5 guys away, but compared to McD's or Burger King it's a joke IMO.

Burgers are similar to what i cook on the grill and the Cajun fries are awesome.

It's one of the few places I will actually go to eat a burger instead of cooking it myself.  They are all over town and I think the price is reasonable for what you get.  Quality over quantity, plus they give you enough fries for 2 people easily.

McD's, BK and JitB are fucking nasty burgers and the fries are frozen shit.  Disgusting.  I cannot even consider eating crap like that.

i refuse to eat fast food bugers, they are not burgers to me, to me a burger is what you get at bonnie's grill in park slope. i catch shit for this atitude but to me all this discussion about fast food burgers is moot, 5 guys and mcdonalds and burger king and in n out are all shitty

there's not even any meat in there, it's just the esence of meat, the flavor of meat is all you get, nothing to satisfy you

They might be shitty, but i fucking love them and so does everyone else. Hey I'm no chef.

5 Guys is the best of fast food IMO.

I have never ordered a burger at a nice restaurant, but I'm assuming i should skip the fillet Mignon next time I'm at Ruth's Cris and order a real burger. lol

Lol, your right about that!  The guys defending Mcdonalds have to understand the amount of fries that they give you.  It is at least 3-4 large fries worth of Mcd's.

^^^ lol at this video

did everyone see how the burger looked when it was done? see any pink inside? see anything that can be called rare or medium rare? hell no

first of all, do not put anything inside the beef, if you need to mix in fat with the beef then you can do that

second, you dont even need to grind it, cut it up into tiny tiny cubes, dice it, that's that you're good

third, do not ever smash the burger like that, even on a grill do not press down with the spatula, you will squeeze juice out of it

he makes a good point in that you shouldn't spend too much time kneeding the beef because it will start to render the fat and when it gets cold again it will be hard and not good. but then he SMASHES THE SHIT out of the burge and COOKS IT TO ALL HELL, so ignore his shpeel about cooking th eburger with your hands lol

the big difference between a fast food burger and a buger is that a burger is about the beef. you can make it rare or mid rare or whatever. a fast food burger is always cooked to hell, most likely in some factory, then reheated at the place

cooking is so simple and easy, why the fuck all these idiots come around trying to tell people what to do and dont even tell them what to do right. how do u fuck up a burger
