For the third consecutive year, Five Guys Burgers and Fries has taken home the title of best burger.
Why? It could be many reasons.
Lets start with the fact that the hamburger patties are made from 100 percent beef and cooked to juicy well done. There are no freezers in the restaurant nothing is ever frozen.
Maybe its the 15 different toppings, all available at no additional cost, which means there are more than 225,000 ways to order a burger.
Burgers come with two patties, unless you specify little, which means you get a single patty.
This national chain now has more than 1,000 locations in 47 states and six Canadian provinces.
One note: Five Guys does use peanut oil in its fryers for french fries, but allergy sufferers should feel safe in ordering a burger. The grill is kept away from the fryer. Cooks will pack the burger in a separate bag if you let them know about your allergy.
