Five Guys

A couple years ago, I went to Five Guys with some people from work. 

Washingtonians, Virgnians and Marylanders (I really just wanted to use all those words in a sentence...) go on and on about Five Guys.  Like the way Californians go on about in-and-out.  Its serious.  I was psyched. I was ready for it.

It was BAD.  Terrible. Awful. Possibly, the WORST burger I had ever had.
Nobody understood...Had I gone to the wrong restaurant?

So, after a couple years of having a strong dislike of Five Guys, I was in DC this week and decided to give it a second chance.  This year is about second chances.  (Sorry, no third chances.)

I did the smart thing.  I asked the girl at the counter what she liked.
Little Bacon Cheeseburger. Done.
It was sounding good already.
Toppings?...Mayo, Lettuce, Tomatoes, mushrooms, pickles.

The verdict: It was good.  Real good. I was hungry. I ate so quick, I actually gave myself a tummy ache. 

The fries, though, not good. Sorry Five Guys, you just can't win 'em all!
