Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Katie and I went on vacation to Dallas for five days in April. Our purpose for the trip was to see the sights, go to a hockey and baseball game, and of course find and sample the best food that big D has to offer. This is part two of seven in our Dallas series. So sit back, put on your Stetson and enjoy this special edition of Eating My Way Through Dallas.
I had heard of Five Guys before, and knew that they are going to be opening a store in Orange County this summer. Katie an I were at the Galleria Mall in Dallas, and spotted the Five Guys and decided we would get a sneak preview. Here is what we found.
Five Guys is at first glance, your basic fast food restaurant. The menu is pretty standard. They have hamburgers, hot dogs and fries. They do offer peanuts while you wait. They also have stacks of peanut oil all over the restaurant. Not sure if they sell it there, or they are just showing that their fries are fried in peanut oil. Now on to the burger and fries.
First up the fries at Five Guys. They were really great. I know I should turn in my California license for saying this, but these fries are way better than In-N-Out's fries. They were way hot, and tasted great. Not greasy at all. They have two sizes of fries here, large and regular, we got the regular and it easily could feed two to three people.
This burger really does deserve two pictures and more. I ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger. They also have a Little Bacon Cheeseburger for smaller appetites that features only one patty. The burgers at Five Guys come with your choice of fifteen toppings for free. Most of these are condiments, but they also include mushrooms, onions, jalapeno peppers, and green peppers. I liked the wide choice at Five Guys. I went with relish, mayo and grilled onions. The bun was soft, and the burger itself was moist and juicy, without being overly greasy. The bacon was crisp, and everything together made this one fantastic fast food burger.
So now I am super excited to have a Five Guys open in Orange. I hope it is as great as this visit was. Out of five sports cars, because all guys love sports cars, Five Guys gets 3.5 sports cars.
