Restaurant Review : Five Guys Burgers and Fries in Clifton

Delicious burgers, at a good price. That's what I'm talkin about!

I have only been to Five Guys Burgers and Fries once, but I am longing to go back soon! It isn't exactly right up the street, but not too far. We have to make it more of a date night kinda thing, since we have to drive a bit and therefore dine in since it wouldn't be prudent to try to take our food back home with us from Clifton to Western Hills. So soon and very soon, we will be back! We will make a cheap date night happen!

Their website says that they only use fresh ground beef, never frozen. And their burgers sure do taste like it. They taste fresh. Nice and juicy. Not like a frozen patty. Their menu isn't very vast, but who needs a vast menu when you've got some wonderful burgers? Sometimes it is good for a restaurant to concentrate on a specialty and make it perfection, rather than trying to do too many things. So I really appreciate that they strive to make delicious burgers. 

I ordered the cheeseburger, and as you can see it comes with two burger patties. That's one thick, juicy burger! I could do without the extra patty, but it was so good! Next time I will just order their Little Cheeseburger which is a single patty. They give you so many options for toppings, and they are all free!! Say what? So yes you can do the usual lettuce, tomato, mayo... but you can also add onions, mushrooms, peppers, steak sauce, and bbq sauce for free! I'll put mushrooms on anything!

Here's PJ's burger... with some bites taken out. He had already dug in before I could take a picture! I think he got bbq sauce on his. That's a big burger :)

Their fries remind me of Penn Station's fries... not exactly but similar. They tasted hand-cut and fresh, not like the fries you get from so many fast food restaurants. They were pretty good but not the best fries I've ever had. I'm more impressed by the burger.

This seriously was one of the best burgers I have had in awhile. I didn't know what to expect from a small fast food/diner chain restaurant. But it lived up to my expectations! Service was quick. The burgers were delicious, and I loved the ooey gooey cheese! I appreciate the topping options, and that they are free! I really want one to open up closer to my house, on the westside! I'd be there just about as often as I am at City BBQ  :)

i feel the exact same way about 5 guys! i love love love their burgers, but could do without the fries! & i love that all of their toppings are free... but, like you guys, the hubs & i have to drive a ways to get to one, so it's a cheap-date-night-treat! :D

I've been wanting to try this place. We have one about 15 minutes away in a really nice outdoor shopping mall called Southlake Town Square. It's always really busy so it has to be good. Sure looks good from your pics. I love bbq sauce on my burgers! The messier, the better!

@ Kristin - We are soooo on the same level, girl! I wish we lived closer so we all could do a cheap-double-date-night! :)

@ Rhondi - Ours is about 15 minutes away too but worth it sometimes! The time we went it wasn't very busy, surprisingly, since it is right by a college campus! But I hope the food is just as good when busy! And yes, messy=delicious! You are speakin my language :)
