Five Guys does not mess around with frills.
The honored national burger chain doesn't waste time, attention or money on decor, an ever-expanding menu or even fancy sacks to carry your burger and fries.
And it works. For the fourth consecutive year, Five Guys has earned top burger honors.
The walls simply point out the franchise's accomplishments with quotes from newspapers across the country. It must be tough picking which accolades to publish. The menu: burgers, fries, hot dogs and a couple of sandwich options. All 15 toppings are free. And when you pick up your burger (it's a double unless you choose the "little" option) and mountain of fries (even the new "little" option is big enough for two), it all comes in a brown paper bag.
No frills means all the focus goes into the food. It's a winning formula - again.
