As much as I enjoy Five Guys, if I'm traveling through The Region, I'm going to Schoop's because it's authentically NWI. Five Guys does have better fries, but I get onion rings at Schoop's.

Our local Schoops is just gross. It has lost it's diner feel and has turned into a greasy-feeling restaurant (and no, I don't mean the food). I much rather prefer 'Round the Clock'.

5 Guys is awesome, clean, and greasy (in a naughty-food way)

Bizarre question. One is a diner with a few locations in a very small area. The other is a major fast food chain with over 1,000 locations nationwide. Apples and oranges.

Schoops all the way. I was excited to try 5 Guys and after we did, we thought it was a joke. We didn't like it and were extremely disappointed. I do have to admit, we don't eat a lot of red meat, but when we do, it's off to Schoop's!

I hear you: when we lived in Chicago, people talked about 5 guys like celestial angels formed the patties with their bare hands. Schoops is far, far better, and I don't know why people like those fries at 5-guys. they just taste like a sack of grease to me.

I find Five Guys to be way overrated, IMO. The fries are decent, but the meals themselves do not justify the cost--you practically need to take out a second mortgage to eat there!

Schoops doesn't exactly charge McDs prices.

And I love the crusty edge of a Schoops burger.

Schoops...no question.
I am a fan of the crusty edge too.
I am also a fan of supporting small local businesses when they are up to par.

The original Schoops location ISN'T the one in Chicago Heights, Illinois??? I thought it was. This question isn't rhetorical.

From the official Schoops website:

"Schoop's hamburgers have been a part of the Calumet Region of Indiana and Illinois since 1948. It's the area southeast of Chicago where gutsy workers make steel, refine oil and build things big"
