Five Guys Burger & Fries

March 22, 2015

I decided to document my trip to Five Guys while I was on spring break visiting my boyfriend. Here is me looking super excited at my burger. As some of you may have read in my 7 random facts about me post, I'm obsessed with cheeseburgers. I would probably eat one everyday if eating meat everyday was ok, lol. Sidenote: I do eat veggie burgers from time to time. My favorite cheap grocery store had a 4 pack of these amazing southwestern burgers for $2.50 and stopped selling them! I am so sad about that :(

This isn't the first time I've been here, I'm just trying to do more ~lifestyle~ posts here on the blog! Let me know if this is cool with y'all. The first time I went to one was when I started college in Pittsburgh and finally left my small bubble of a hometown that really didn't have any major chains. Ironically, one just opened back home!

If you haven't had a chance to eat at a Five Guys before they are known for having their daily potatoes from different locations, usually in Idaho. Their fries are pretty good, but are a little greasy. It is kind of a Five Guys thing to get a brown bag with your french fries overflowing the cup ending up at the bottom of the bag. I always get a single cheeseburger with some of my favorite fixings--lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickle! And of course I have to have mayo and catsup. They do have other options such as hot dogs, grilled cheese and veggie sandwiches, if burgers aren't your thing. What are your favorite combinations on burgers??

My favorite part of this place is probably the endless possibilities drink machine. I'm sure you guys have seen these at places before where you can add so many different flavors to your favorite drinks. I didn't go to crazy and got grape Fanta and then switched to plain old lemonade, so basic yet so good!

Let me know if y'all want to see more "lifestyle" posts. I have an outfit post coming up next :)


  1. I love Five Guys! I personally think it's way better than In-and-Out lol. I only get the small fries and raspberry sprite lol. I think you should do more lifestyle post! ♡

    1. I want to try in-and-out so bad!!! California awaits me, lol.

  2. I love burgers, sad there's not that great places here where I live to get some. To my shame I just go to mcdonalds, ha. Every city should have a good burger place!

    1. everyone loves burgers! ok, well almost everyone. and I go to Mc Donalds more than I should sometimes, lol.

  3. Reading this post reminds me that I need to try Five guys out asap!! There is one so close to where I live yet I still have never gotten around to trying!

  4. Hello fellow burger lover! Ah, I would absolutely love to eat burgers everyday, if only they came calorie and heart attack free. For now I stick to once a week ;)... Five Guys is kind of new/rare in England (where I live) but I tried it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I loved the fries in a brown paper bag thing - quirky novelty. But dare I say I went for a hot dog instead of a burger (am I completely stupid), I'd already had 2 cheeseburgers that week so I was trying to be 'good'. Anyway, I'm sure I'll be back again soon. :)

    Great post.

  5. We love five guys, it has to be one of our fav burger spots!
