I think it's pretty great the prices around here aren't too bad. So maybe it's just your area.
It's really one of few fast food places that makes a real burger. I like that.

Small fry is enough to feed 3 people. Large fry 4-5 people

Hmm, a burger thread that came back down In-N-Out vs., I didn't see that one coming.

To me, Five Guys is better than most places and that includes In-N-Out, but only by a hair. Grease is a non issue here. The first In-N-Out burger I had was from the one in Vegas. The bun was covered in grease from the employees gloves, and the burger oozed when I took the first bite. Was it delicious, hell yes.

The next time I go to Five Guys I am going to suck it up and order a burger all the way.

5Guys is by far the greasiest burger around here. The meal leaves a film of grease on my mouth when done. It is nasty. We have much better burger joints around with much better quality meat. But yeah, after burger, fries and a drink it's at least $12 a person. Not sure how you eat a meal there for $6-7.

No you can't. In-n-Out doesn't have any bacon.

alright, so went there Sat night and i liked it a lot. forgot they had peanuts and they were pretty damn good. tasted like they had a little spice to them, not just salt. i got the bacon cheesburger with everything except tomatoes. was a great burger. soft bun, good meat, not too greasy. all the ingredients seemed to be fresh and good quality.

the fries you could tell were fresh and just potatoes as they advertise. because they are large cut, they are plain if not eaten with ketchup, but i thought they were excellent.

gf thought her burger didn't have a lot of taste and only likes fries with ranch sauce, which they don't have, so from not on i won't be going here with her i guess.

will go back for sure. for one regular burger, one mini burger, one regular fry, and two drinks it was about $19. reasonable price i thought as you also get the peanuts and leave full.
