Five Guys Burgers and Fries

We always get excited when a new restaurant opens. We love to try new things. I saw in the paper that the much anticipated burger joint was open so we planned it for the weekly rotation.

I always have great expectations and that might be part of the problem. The menu has burgers and fries. The burgers are fresh meet, medium thickness with grilled buns. They kind of remind me of when my mother used to cook burgers on her skillet on the stove. They weren't bad, just okay. The fries were the same. A little to thick for my liking, but were cooked until they were brown, which is good. I don't like undercooked fries.

I don't get it. This restaurant has been votes "Best Burger" all over the US and it is Zagat rated. I don't know what I am missing, but if given a choice, I would probably choose a Big Mac instead. Or maybe a Clown Burger. Still my choice for one of the best Mom & Pop greasy burgers around. And the absolute best french fries anywhere.

Sorry Five Guys, you just didn't pull it off for me.
