Five Guys Five Guys is known for its freshly made mouth-watering burgers and brown bags filled with delicious french fries. This burger joint has been my favorite fast food place since I’ve tried it. Many people have recognized their tasty burgers. In fact, Five Guys has been named the Burger Restaurant Brand of the Year in the Harris Poll’s EquiTrend study. Starting in Arlington, VA in 1986, Five Guys has expanded to almost 1,500 locations spanning the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe and the Middle East. Not only do they have friendly and quick service, variety of fresh toppings to put on your burger and hot dogs and you also get the American burger quality that you pay for.An important factor that sets apart Five Guys from its competitors like In-N-Out and Whataburger is the service they provide. Five Guys hires employees with great customer service, treating their customers with a respectful and helpful attitude. In-N-Out tends to be overcrowded most times which leads to long waits for food and cranky employees. Hence the poor service they usually provide to their customers. Although Whataburger has quick service they usually lack friendly service. With many of their staff being young, they lack customer service skills, leading to unhappy customers. Helpful and quick service from skillful employees is what separates Five Guys from other fast food places. Additionally, everyone prefers a different type of burger, from choosing how it’s cooked to the toppings on the burger. Five Guys makes it easy to customize their burgers with 15 of their fresh toppings. Offering unique toppings such as grilled mushrooms, jalapenos, and A1 sauce, which are not usually served in other fast food restaurants. Five Guys also allows customers to create a shake with their desired toppings such as bacon, malted milk, and coffee. Having this option gives customers the ability to personalize their meal for a more enjoyable experience. The downside to this is some new customers get overwhelmed by all the topping combinations. However, Five Guys also provides the option to order the standard burger, which consists of lettuce, tomatoes, onions, ketchup, and mustard. Finally, Five Guys quality of food is not comparable to any other fast food place. According to their website, all Five Guys locations only have coolers, no freezers. Truly tasting the difference between their fresh ground beef and the frozen patties from their competitors. They also only use peanut oil for their famous delicious french fries. Five Guys only prepares their burgers and fries once ordered ensuring their customers receive the freshest food possible. The only disadvantage of this method is that it usually takes a longer period of time to prepare. Nonetheless, it’s worth the wait for the hot meal while enjoying free peanuts available to all customers. In conclusion, Five Guys is an excellent option for those in need of a savory and appetizing meal. Although it may take longer to prepare, the quality of their food is worth it in the end. For those who like a tasty and affordable burger, then Five Guys is a great alternative to other fast food places. Five Guys burger and fries makes satisfied customers come back for more. With only 5 locations in San Antonio, Five Guys will hopefully be expanding to more areas of this city for easier access to great service, variety of toppings, and the best quality.
