five guys burger sucks

Coals? What coals? It looked like a flat fry grill to me. And I can see with both eyes. Charbroiled are the only way to go!

five guys burger sucks

I completely agree. There is no Five Guys near our home, so when one opened in Anaheim, I made my daughter take me when I visited her a couple of months ago. The wait was long, there weren't enough places to sit, and they completely lost my order ... okay, I came for the food. The burger was greasy greasy greasy and the bun was spongy and had no taste. Likewise the fries. I was disappointed - we see all these raves about it on TV, on the Today show and everything, and it was just awful. I wanted a good burger. Choices? - I get more choices at Carl's Jr., the burgers are better, definitely the fries are better and they're everywhere. I feel so bad about this, I hate to write anything bad about anyone, they're people too, but this hype is wrong and it's misleading!

48" gas (dual-fuel) range: Wolf vs FiveStar vs Thermador vs Viking vs Dacor

I wanted to weigh in on a comment you made. I'm insisting on a 48" range BECAUSE of the smaller oven with the bigger oven, and because my husband liked the indoor grill we have had on the Thermador 48" previously. We are a two-person household, so I like having the smaller oven, I don't need to heat up a large oven when Steve and I just want food for ourselves, yet I still want a larger oven so when we DO have family, we can make a turkey or larger thing if we want to. The smaller oven is just the right size for sides, dressing, pies, and other adjuncts to a large holiday meal, without having to open the big door on the bird or roast. THAT's why the small/oven large/oven combination works well enough for so many people that it's pretty much a standard and it's harder to find the one large oven. If I was going to put in the two wall ovens most people do, I'd just have a cooktop, and save about 5 grand not having 3/ or 3 1/2 ovens.
