Five Guys Burgers and Fries is a new fast food restaurant on Yonge Street in Downtown Toronto, not far from the Eaton's Centre.
Today I tried their burgers (and their fries)... But I am sadly disappointed. Their burgers are really only par. And while the fries were excellent they really were not worth the price.
My conclusion is that if you want a good burger go to a pub or to Hero burger. Hero has really good burgers. But I must admit I still prefer pub burgers much more. True, it takes longer to get your burger, but the quality is way better.
The whole thing about Five Guys Burgers and Fries is that it is supposed to be authentic California style burgers - or at least it is as close to that as they can possibly get without being in California... However all this proves to me is that California burgers really aren't that good and don't deserve this reputation of quality.
It simply was not that good of a burger. Not when compared to Hero burger or to a typical pub burger.
It was certainly better than McDonalds or Burger King or any other, you know, - cheap - fast food place, but really not as good as some people like to say it is. Its reputation is overblown.
Final review? 3 stars out of 5. Nothing special.
