It's a franchise, and like many early-stage franchises they have very uneven quality (probably poor adherence to standards or training). I've heard or read great reviews... tried one out here and it was a very forgettable experience.

It's a good enough burger, but overpriced. And when you round out your meal with fries and a drink, you're approaching the price of a good buffet. It's not worth the price.

Yes, back in January there was a thread about Five Guys. Mike Brown will love the Five Guys that's relatively near his new house. I will probably bump into him there one of these days... either that or the In-N-Out across the street from the Trader Joes/Mall.

Ridiculous. I've had both. In N Out takes it every time. Not to mention it's way cheaper.

For the Five Guy guys.....what toppings and spreads do you get on it?

What's great about In-n-Out is that your burger still looks like a burger when you're almost done.

Lettuce, Tomatoes, A.1 Steak Sauce, Onions, and sometimes Jalapeno Peppers. The only thing Five Guys has an advantage is the size of the patty, which is 1.5x the size of In N Out's at 4x the price. Otherwise it's way too greasy even for a burger and the bun is nothing next to In N Out's.

The fries taste like cardboard too. How do I know? I was in a rush one time and accidentally ripped off a piece of the cup. I thought it was the skin or something since it tasted the same!

In N Out > 5 Guys
All day, every day, and twice on Sundays. Dollar for dollar the best tasting burger/fry combo.
While I do like 5 Guys and their cajun fries, the times I've eaten there, their patties were inconsistent (some had seasoning, others didn't)

Wouldn't even bother with burgers at Tommy's. Just go straight to the tamales ladled with that chili.
