Five Guys Famous Burgers & Fries has opened a franchise in Wayne’s (really KoP’s) Gateway Shopping Center. We typically stay away from chains, but a “Best of Philly” fries win has us intrigued. We just hope the “well done” only rule for burgers is just a rumor.
Update: Went to Five Guys, and yes it is true that you can’t order a burger anything but well done (although mine came with a little pink in the middle). Burgers are still pretty darn good though, and two quarter pound patties cost less than $5. Fries, on the other hand, are solid but outrageously expensive — $4 bucks for a “large” which is about enough for one hearty appetite. This is easily the restaurant’s money maker — they are probably taking home 90% profit on these babies. Service is pretty bad too, but overall this is a good place to pick up a burger if you’re in the mood.
