five guys burger sucks

I don't think most forums care if the OP ever reads it, this post is about more than the OP now. :) I agree, anyone who can't fill up from a giant 5G burger and fries has way more important issues to deal with. My husband eats quite a lot, usually gets double burgers at most places, but gets the little burger at 5G then we share a small fry and are stuffed. The other night he went big and got the double and was miserable full, saying he'll never get the fatty again. And he's not a small guy. If you can eat two of those, please go make daily appointments at the gym and cardiologist. Thanks.

Yeah, you have no idea how pissy people in my state get that we have no In n Out. I've never gotten to try one, but for now, I can make my burger outings at Five Guys super cheap, less than fast food. $3 for fries is HUGE, should feed 2-3 fat people. I'll stick with them until someone with a brain brings In N Out to Oregon.

Are you letting each kid get their own GIGANTIC fries? A SMALL fry is enough for 2-3 people. How are you spending $40? Each person gets a soda with free refills? Share a soda or skip it. I have no idea how you'd spend so much since a 1/4 burger is $4.89 with bacon and cheese, and a 1/2 pound Chris Farley FATTY burger is $6.19 with bacon and toppings that cost up to $1.00 each ... Place by my house charges $1 each for mushrooms, bbq sauce, jalapenos, etc. I wouldn't call a place expensive just because you go in and order the entire store. If your family is eating a fry each that's something else to look at. My husband is a BIG eater, and I'm no skinny minnie, and we spend $12.67 for 2 people. Sounds like you should look at your choices. It would be nice for 5 guys to do a kids burger though, that was smaller than 1/4 pound.

You can always make things cheaper at home... that's the point of going out, it's going to cost more for the convenience. Your home kitchen is not hiring people or paying rent. The point was that people were calling it expensive, and $12.67 for TWO people to eat is CHEAP... People shouldn't be eating 1/2 pound burgers, that's why our country is fat. Five Guys little burger is plenty for normal people, and at $4.89 WITH BACON CHEESE AND ANY TOPPINGS, it is CHEAPER THAN FAST FOOD, but it's not fast food.

Very few people would call the double burger 'small'. The little burger is a normal sized burger, my husband and I go and spend $12.67... The small fry is more than enough to share between 2/3 people. A double cheese burger is $6.19, with whatever you want added to it, that's CHEAP...

I challenge you to go to a restaurant where you can add bbq sauce, cheese, jalapeno, grilled mushrooms and onion, and spend less than $6.34... A DOUBLE burger and 2 orders of cajun fries would be about $9 at a fast food restaurant, and this is NOT fast food, they don't freeze the meat. I happen to love their burgers, and 2/3 times I didn't like the fries, but they use different potatoes all the time, I think it's cool.

But a rip off? No sir, you don't need a double burger. And share a small fry. Cheap. Cheap. Cheap and good.
