  • Five Guys Burgers

    Anyone tried 'em yet?

    Burger chain that originated in the DC area. Like In N' Out, a very basic menu but they do have hot dogs. Obama supposedly loves the burgers. Saw a sign for one in Airdrie when I was down in Calgary and wondered if it was the same chain. Apparently it is and they have a location in Sherwood Park and one opening soon in St. Albert.

          Tried them in Medicine Hat last summer and was really impressed. Can't wait to see if they hold up here.

              Weird that Edmonton is the fast food, commercial business, launching pad and we're the last to get a franchise. St. Albert before Edmonton? I didn't think people in St. Albert ate anything as common as a burger. I've had them in states before and they are great. Share the fries!.

                ^Perhaps not so odd, it seems that Torontonians have to drive out to Mississauga or Vaughn to get their Five Guys fix.

                  I also find it odd that Sherwood Park has a Fulton Market Burger (the first outside of Ontario, if I remember right).
                  They're going to park their car over there. You're going to park your car over here. Get it?

                    I hope they do well in St Al. The McDonalds on the west side of the Trail on that corner is probably one of the worst I have been in as far as service goes.

                      5 guys has a sort of "rural" feel to it, so St Alberts a pretty good location for them I think.

                        I don't find it odd. Sherwood Park has one of the largest disposable income per capita in Canada. I've always been surprised at the lack of retail and restaurants the are in the sherwood park area, but that has changed a lot in the last 5 years.

                          I went to a Five Guys in Alexandria, VA (didn't really notice the "rural" feel to it that moahunter mentioned) a couple of years ago while visiting my brother. Pretty damn delicious burger -- unhealthy as hell, of course...

                            ^maybe its just the Calgary one? It is done up like a barn, with wood tables, sacks of potatoes, etc. I haven't been to any others, so not sure.
