Any east coasters have 5 Guys nearby?

Post by Desdamona » August 16, 2006 2:41 am

We stumbled across the new first Jacksonville location of this burger joint
this afternoon. Besides pretty good burgers, and GREAT fries, I discovered
Radio Margaritaville playing in the echo-y dining space. What really surprised
me was that Why Don't We Get Drunk... was the first tune I recognized. :lol: :lol: :lol:
And in the "Voted best burger for families -July ‘00 - Washington Families Magazine"eatery!


I was just wondering, has anyone else eaten at a place that plays RM?
And whether all the 5 Guys Burgers & Fries locations do this?

One of the original if not the original is from here in DC area(if I remeber correctly). Have not heard RM when I go in there...not always paying attention.
Just waiting for the burger :D

PEANUTS! :D (they serve bulk peanuts in the shell, where they are allowed that is.) I've been going there for years... they are just now expanding,, tremendously.

http://fiveguys.com/press.html

Five Guy's has been voted "Best Burgers" for the past five years in Washingtonian Magazine, were rated number one "Bang for the Buck" in Zagat Survey and The Washington Post calls them "the Willy Wonkas of burgercraft." In addition, since expanding outside of the DC Metro area, Five Guys has won the Annapolis Magazine's reader poll for Best Fries, Richmond City Magazine's reader's choice for Best Burger and the Fredericksburg Star's Simply the Best Award for Best Burger.
And I can play this here guitar,,
Gonna thank my lucky stars.

Thank you stars!!

The best burger I have ever eaten out in a restaurant and their cajun fries are the best. They are about to open 5 locations here in metro ATL.

Never heard of 5 Guys, but to answer your other question -- I ate at Cafe Caribu (sp?) in Fernandina Beach on my birthday last February, just after chatting with our BN'er Prtthd119 during her ciggy break, and they were playing RM. It was cool.

There's one at Waterworks Mall, 5 minutes from my house. Been there once, pretty good burger, like their fries. Didn't notice what the music was. Only 2 locations in Pittsburgh, Waterworks Mall and in Oakland near the Pitt campus.

There are 2 near me. One in Kannapolis/Concord area and one was just built at Lake Norman in Mooresville. I have yet to go there, but I will now. My friends say it is a really good place! It's gotta be good if they are playing RM, right! :D

Aw, man, now you've made me hungry and miss the DC area all at once! There were four or five that I knew of when I lived out there. Gooooooood stuff.

Maria's been to the new one here in Raleigh.
Says she loved it.

We've got a place in downtown Raleigh called Mo-Joe's burger joint that still is tops with me.
Our own little CIP.

Always open to a good burger join though.

We have one of those in J'ville too! I thought it was a local bidness
as well, but it must be bigger than that if we both have one.

And I have no immediate plans to move. Still waiting to splash the boat...

I wasn't really trying to promote 5 Guys, but everyone seems to be
speaking well of them, so I guess I'll have to make another visit some
time. All I can say is that they definitely do not serve Weight Watchers
or health-type food! :lol: :lol: :lol: Can you say "grease soaked brown bag", kiddies?
