Five Guys Burgers and Fries... Oh MY!

I made my first trip to the new Five Guys Burgers & Fries location out in Webster, NY this morning for an early lunch. Erin had been there before and I was curious to try it based on everything that I had heard.

Well... it was good. I ordered the beast you see to the left... a bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions and mushrooms. I also got a regular order of fries to go with it.

The burger was really tasty... not horribly greasy, and definitely a mouth stretcher. It was easily 5 inches thick when I unwrapped it from the foil. I had to open wide and squash it down just to take a good bite of it.

I think next time I'll stick with the "little" version as it only comes with one beef patty instead of two. I might skip the fries as well and only because there were just WAY too many of them. They came in a cup which I thought was a nice portion, but as soon as I pulled that and the burger out of the bag I discovered that the bag had an inch thick layer of fries on the bottom. Suffice it to say there was a lot of food and frankly after finishing the burger the fries just seemed like too much to eat.

If you like burgers it's definitely worth a look, but if you're going to get the fries it might be best to bring someone to share with.
