Five Guys gets a lot of hype, and rightly so! The burgers there are amazing, and the fries are an equal show stopper. Our Maine holiday time was coming to an end, so we had to head over to Five guys for one last big, juicy American burger.
When you order at Five Guys, there are endless burger toppings, and they are all included in the price. Green peppers, pickles, tomatoes, grilled onions, mushrooms, jalapenos – you name it, they have it. They’re happy to smother your burger with any sauce under the sun, and if you’re not a burger fan (what?!) you could always opt for a hotdog, sandwich, or veggie burger. And of course you will have to order fries. Lots and lots of fries!
There are bags upon bags of peanuts in the dinning area, ready for diners to nibble on and to remind customers that all of Five Guys’ fries are cooked in 100% peanut oil. Yummy yum!Once you’ve placed your order, you are then faced with the difficult task of waiting for your food. The kitchen is an open setting, so you can watch as they flip your burger, stack it high with toppings, douse it with sauce, and then wrap it up! I went for the bacon burger with tomato, lettuce, onions, pickles, and BBQ sauce. And then smothered on extra gobs of ketchup. I’m a condiment gal. B went for a burger with everything. Bacon, cheese, more bacon, and tons of veggies. And of course fries.
The entire meal was finger-lickin’ good, and a great little goodbye to Portland Maine!
