It’s still really hard for me to pass up a Five Guys.  Even though they seem to be popping up all over the place, I still can’t get enough of them.  I just really like their greasy fares.

Late last week, a co-worker and I were heading back to Grand Rapids from Jenison.  Now, it’s not really on the way, but there is a Five Guys in Grandville that opened up within the last few months.  It’s not on the way…but it’s not too far out of the way either.

I convinced my co-worker to let me stop for dinner.  He didn’t have a problem with it, so I headed towards the 44th Street exit on I-196.

The (so-far) only Grand Rapids location of Five Guys is on 44th Street in Grandville in front of the (somewhat) new Cabella’s.  It’s in a small plaza out near the road that hosts a couple of different restaurants including a Potbelly Sandwich Shop.

I promised my co-worker I would walk back out if the place was packed.  I could see from the large windows that face the parking lot that they were busy, but I didn’t see a line at the order counter, so I went in.  

I was lucky enough to be able to step right up to the counter to order and since I’m no stranger to these delicious, delicious burgers, I knew what I wanted without hesitation.

I ordered my usual.  A bacon cheeseburger with jalapenos and BBQ sauce plus an order of regular fries.  The bill came out to a little over $11 and I grabbed my receipt with the order number to wait in line for my food.

Now, while I was able to step right up to a register, there was a little of a backlog at the order pickup.  I was 13 numbers away when I started paying attention, so it did take a little over ten minutes to be handed my bag of food so we could get back to the office.

It’s hard for me to wait to eat when I can smell Five Guys signature smell wafting from the brown paper bag.  I was good and only ate a few of the many extra fries they toss in the bag until I was safely back at a desk.

I don’t know why, but I always go right for the fries.  The fries I had on this night were some of the best I have ever had from a Five Guys.  They had a very crispy outside and that soft chewy interior.  Recently it seems I’ve been getting fries that are a little limp from Five Guys, but this one hit it right on the mark.  Perfect crispy fries.

Once finishing off about half of the fries, I figured I better dig in to the burger or I would fill up on fried potatoes.

The sandwich was delicious as always.  I love the cheap white bread that barely holds together once it’s stuffed full of fresh beef, raw jalapenos, crispy bacon, and perfectly melted cheese.

Man, I love Five Guys.  Seriously….I know it’s basically fast food.  I know it’s a little on the expensive side, but damn it’s good.  I will gladly pay a little extra for some serious good grub.
