I just looked it up doesn't seem like a bad place. I never go out to eat as it is. I can live without it along with all the other places. A lot of people are too lazy to cook their meals or make the time to cook their meals as they claim they are to "busy". I love my home made meals it would be fine with me if I never went out to eat again. The market is flooded with all these places to eat at although this one seems decent.

We don't eat out a lot and yes, I'm sure some eat out that really shouldn't due to budget issues but I think it is unfair to broad brush people that eat out as "lazy". For some that can afford it, it is a quality of life issue. Not everyone enjoys cooking. In addition by going out to eat, people are supporting an industry that creates a lot of entry level jobs that people depend on.

Five Guys is to burgers what Apple is to technology. It's a pile of hype that sends materialistic Sheeple running into their retail locations to pay big money for an inferior product.
I wouldn't even go that far. There's a Five Guys on my street in Chicago and it's not a big deal at all. I don't see a ton of people in there, don't know anyone who eats it and never hear it talked about. It's just another random fast food joint, right?

I lived in Iowa for 18 years and have now lived in Texas for 5. We have five guys here in Texas. I've been maybe once or twice.

I'm going back to Iowa to see family next week. The last place I would ever go to in my home town, even if they had one, would be five guys. I can think of far better restaurants and better burgers.

I'm in complete agreement Chicago....it's no big deal.
And if it's an inferior product, it will disappear once it's realized that it has no real cachet.

Noooo it's not just another random fast food joint at all, it has a gigantic and growing cult following! You guys must be missing something, because Five Guys is HUGE with Gen Y and the youngest parts of Gen X! It's hailed as the only burger place that's ever been real competition for In-N-Out.

Five Guys is pretty popular in Kansas City. They are usually packed (the 2 locations I've been to). Have to admit, I thought their hamburgers and fries were pretty good, though I don't frequent hamburger places much, but my kids love them.

I am a vegetarian...99.9% of the time. I have a random burger or steak once a year or so. Once in Las Vegas I tried In-N-Out because I kept being told it was amazing and I HAD to try it. YUCK. Total waste of my once a year meat. No idea what the big deal was! If Five Guys is anything like that? No thanks.
