Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
The buzz about Five Guys' famous burgers is palpable - touted by many a city paper as the best burgers ever flipped into existence, the thinnish, griddle-cooked patties have a lot to live up to. Mostly, they do that. Mostly. The daily-ground beef is lightly packed and grilled to a savory, caramelized crunch, then stacked into twos and loaded into a supple, sesame-seed bun. The meat's OK, but the toppings are where it's at: Choose to load your greasy gut bomb with fresh jalapenos, grilled onions, mushrooms, bacon, steak sauce, or whatever your heart (attack) desires. Big bags of spuds displayed in the front of house are cut into skin-on fries daily, though they could use more time crisping in the peanut oil and more salt. The milkshakes are also decent, and so are the prices.

Get the sweet tea for a true taste of the South.
1 order of fries is enough for 2..
Not the best lunch. Very large portion of fries. They show a small cup, but most overflow in the greasy bag.
