Burger Wars Episode LXXXVIII: The Five Guys Effect [BurgeReview]

What do you tip a Wood Guy?
Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Robbery”)

The other day while on a shopping rush in White City we bump into Five Guys. American Invasion fast food burger joint, the place still living up to the hype, these days 12 stores, and still packed but not big queues as the ones in the opening days on Covent Garden.

My burger a bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, jalapeño, lettuce, and tomatoes

Five Guys Burger
The verdict, a good greasy burger, great if you compare with fast food joints. This greasy spoon traditional joint flavours is definitely not my thing, Don’t get me wrong form time to time is ok, but I still prefer a more refined and upscale burger.

The damage, 8.75 quid for the bacon cheeseburger add all toppings you want.

The conclusion, I was amazed to see the Byron branch completely empty while the Five Guys was full with a healthy table turnaround. Londoners definitely are still dazzle by the five guys offer or maybe the 100+ flavours free refill soda machine. Good flavour, my main concern is the patties were overdone as they cook all of them well done, no juiciness factor, sorry for the die hard Five Guys fans but for me is not more than a 6 in my scale, I appreciate the extra fries they give you although they were a bit soggy.
