My friend and I were looking for a place to grab lunch. I was in the mood for a burger and he suggested we go to 5 Guys. I had never been there before, so I had to ask my friend what it was. He said it was a really good burger place, and that I would love 5 Guys.
After hearing him rave about 5 Guys I was excited to try it. We walked in about noon and there was a few people in line but it went pretty fast. I placed my order for a bacon cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and an order of fries. I saw on the menu there was a bacon cheeseburger listed, and a little bacon cheeseburger. I was hunger so I assumed I wouldn’t want a little one. I didn’t really know the difference, I just assumed the little one would be smaller.
He rang me up, and said the total will be $11.78. I was taken back by that. 12 bucks for a burger, fries, and a soda? This better be the best burger and fries I’ve ever had. Regardless I paid the man and sat down.
The kitchen was open to see so I was able to watch them make my meal which was nice. This way I could make sure no one was tampering with my food. I saw the guy on the grill place two burger patties on my sandwich. I guess thats what the difference between a little and regular burger is. You got a double cheeseburger instead of a single. They then put the fries in my fry container and placed it all in a bag. After that they scooped another handful of fries on top in my bag. That was a lot of grease I was thinking to myself.
My order number was called and then I went to go pick it up. When I got it I could see the grease soaking through the bag. I felt like I was picking up a bag full of led it was so heavy. I sat down and started pulling my burger out. It was wrapped in foil which was very hot and soaked with grease. My hands felt disgusting after touching that. I opened up the foil to see my burger sloppily put together falling off the bun. It was as if the whole sandwich was dropped in a bucket of grease then served to me.
I picked up the pieces and started eat it. I must admit it did taste very good. The bacon and burger patties were very crisp, and the fries were crispy and crunchy. I was pretty impressed with the taste. I was able to muster most of the food down, and was very full. My hands were covered in grease and salt so I made sure to wash them after I ate. Even the napkins I had weren’t enough to get all the grease off.
After leaving I didn’t feel too hot. About 30 minutes later I felt very sick to my stomach. I knew it had to be all the grease I just ingested. I didn’t feel like even moving for 4 or 5 hours after eating there. To be honest I wasn’t even really interested in eating dinner later that night either. That food was just too heavy. It was like eating a ball of grease.
Though the food was good I don’t think I’ll be back at 5 Guys anytime soon. I just felt so awful after eating there. I just wanted to throw up. Not to mention it costs an arm and a leg to eat there. Maybe next time I would be better off grabbing a burger at McDonalds.
