look out vortex and the earl, there is some competition coming to town

i grew up around washington d.c. and one of the eateries that was always pure heaven for me was a no-frills burger joint called five guys. and it’s not just me, five guys is consistently voted in washington publications as THE place to grab a burger.

actually no trip home is really complete without at least one stop at a five guys. not sure what it is they do to ’em but the burgers and the fries are absolutely out of this world. the place is totally no-frills too, bare bones with a tiny menu; burgers, hot dogs, fries.

well, i had no idea of this until i was headed over to edgewood retail complex yesterdary to buy a firewire hard drive for my mac, but five guys is headed to georgia*. in fact it appears that there is already one location open in acworth, two planned in alpharetta, the aforementioned one at edgewood and another at Lindbergh center.

i cannot stress this enough, if you love hamburgers you absolutely have to check out five guys. it is, to use a cliché, unreal.

and maybe now i won’t have to go home so much.

    5 guys is the best chain burger place there is. the best burger is louies lunch in new haven, ct. family owned and operated since the 1800’s

    I looked all around and couldn’t see any signs for 5 Guys. Where is it going to be?

    right next to area 51 furniture. its on the street that runs between the two concentrations of big-boxes.

    Thank you for giving me a reason to live through this ungodly heat.
