Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Peanuts in the Shell, The Five Guys Store, My Burger

My mother-in-law came back from a trip down South raving about Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Oh good I thought, another fast food joint. Just what this world needs. Uh, I was wrong. This world NEEDS Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

I thought it was solely a Southern chain until a Facebeook Friend checked in from the Manchester Location using 4square. After looking at, I knew I had to give this place a try. I took my two reviewers in training we set out on a mission to see if Five Guys was really as good as the hype.

It was a warm spring day towards the end of the lunch hour and the place was busy, but not mobbed. As we walked in, we were greeted by bags and bags of Five Guys Private label potatoes. On top, there was a box of peanuts still in the shell. I can’t remember how long its been since I’ve shelled peanuts. Things were off to a good start.

We didn’t wait too long before they took our order. Fish has a hot dog and Mim a grilled cheese. I order a cheeseburger with lettuce, pickles, ketchup and mustard. The cashier is friendly and helpful (even guiding me towards a small order of fries). On the plus side, they are a Coke operation (No Pepsi!), but my kids don’t drink soda or juice, so it was water for them. Also they offer Iced tea, but it isn’t the best brew. I was glad I’d stopped at Starbucks before coming.

Like I said, it was busy, but not crazy. I took the kids around the side of the counter to watch the bee hive of activity behind the scenes and we easily found a table. We waited a reasonable time for our order although I suspect my reviewers in training might disagree with me on that front.

So, how was the food? Oh, Oh MY! Just delicious. The burger was fresh and juicy. The bread was fresh and the toppings were plentiful without being overwhelming. The fries are good, but if you aren’t used to fresh potato fries, they might seem mushy. Think of the fries you get at the fair, that’s the kind of fries that Five Guys serves.

All in all, it was a great  experience. My reviewers in training like it too.

So, if you are looking for a good burger, fast, try Five Guys Burgers and Fries. They have two locations in New Hampshire, the Manchester location is Manchester

1111 South Willow Street, in the same shopping center as Michael’s and Starbucks. There is also a location at 341 Amherst Street in Nashua.

  1. I just had my first Five Guys Encounter last week – Columbia SC. It was awesome. The fries are big enough to share. I got the smaller burger and it was fantastic. I definitely will return. The staff was excellent, too.
