I have seen “Five Guys” in NYC and in the suburbs of Toronto, but still haven’t gotten the opportunity to try it. So when I heard “Five Guys” was opening on Yonge St, near the Eaton Centre, I was stalking this location for weeks.
On opening week, my co-workers and I went during prime lunch hour and were not sure if we would be waiting for hours. To our surprise, although there was a line up, and the tables were full, the line moved quickly, the cooks were fast, and people left the tables as soon as they were done eating. They were able to achieve the diner look with their decor. So far, so good.
Now, the food….
On their menu, they offer the hamburger, which has 2 patties, and what they call the “little hamburger”, which has 1 patty, as well as hot dogs, sandwiches and fries. I opted for the hamburger with tons of free toppings, and had the “Five Guys fries” (regular) on the side. Check out the “Five Guys” menu.
The burger patty was thin but you can tell they were individually made (asymmetrical), juicy, and still maintained a great beef flavour with all my toppings. What makes “Five Guys” stand out, is the portion of their fries. For the fries, you get a scoop that fits into a cup, and a mound of fries in the paper bag, enough to split with a buddy. Imagine if I ordered a larger size? Just don’t look at the amount of grease that stains the paper bag they put the fries in.
Don`t expect it to be the best burger you ever ate, but at Five Guys on Yonge St, you get a tasty double patty hamburger with extra fries cooked in peanut oil, AND you can get served quickly without compromising on the taste. It’s worth stopping by.
