We have more than enough excellent burgers in this town by now that you may well think it simply ain’t big enough for another, especially one that’s stormed over from the US in a blaze of queue-driven glory. But here are five reasons that you should abate your hate for Five Guys:
Despite first appearances, it’s pretty good value. Order a ‘little’ burger – it’s plenty. And a regular fries (£4) is more fries than two people need, so if you can find someone to share with your meal will come in under £8, which ain’t so bad.
Sure the burger’s a bit mushy and its toppings are a bit non-descript and it comes in foil as if it’s leftovers from a BBQ at your neighbours, but I liked it just fine, and I bet you will too.
