5 guys? Is it really that good?

I had been waiting to try Five Guys for a while. I finally went in (No drive thru’s) to the new location yesterday. They asked me if I’d been before and walked me through the basics.
No combos, everything is separate. Order your burger and condiments desired and you’re sides. This particular location had free peanuts to munch on while you wait for your food.
I’ll have to say it wasn’t what I expected. I’d heard all the hype. The burger wasn’t bad. It wasn’t good or great, but still not that bad. The fries, SUCKED.
(Cheap burger) I don’t think so. 2 (Small) burgers, 1 order of fries and 2 medium drinks. Cost $18.00.. Holy cow, that’s four cheeseburger value meals at In N Out. Then they have the nerve to put out a tip jar.

Overall : Not impressed.
