God damn I just realized that I'm hungry.  And now nothing will do but a burger or some carbonara.

Next: gorgonzola-stuffed burger with roast garlic, bacon, fried egg, and shaved red onion on sourdough.

Food pictures!  Boom chook-a-low-low

It's not worth standing in line just for the "chips". There's nothing special about their fries so don't waste your time standing in line unless you're also getting a burger. As someone else mentioned, 5 guys fries are better.

Is it really worth the line though?

Wish Five Guys would come back to the park :(

Has anyone tried Kraze burger in Bethesda? So good. Gives five guys a run for its money IMO

motley fool had an interview with the founder of five guys- I can see why their food is so good- he seems mildly insane (or at least very anal)- they don't have a milk shake because he isn't positive that the kids (his word) can make it properly on a consistent basis, same with coffee

I thought the story behind Five Guys is that it was founded by five brothers...

dad and his four sons, the oldest ones didn't want to go to college, the dad (a U. Michigan grad) spent his time there partying, so he agreed it was useless, so they rolled their college funds into a business

Ho-lee-freak that sounds awesome

Is there somewhere specific you get that or do you just make it at home?

I'm actually amazed that every last bit of that sounds delicious to me.  I'm usually not more than ~3 ingredient guy, tops.  You had me at Gorgonzola stuffed burger.  I could take or leave the garlic and the egg.

I've never had an egg on a burger but it sounds angio-gasmic.

i was pretty bummed when 5 guys left the park. a double cheeseburger with all the fixin's and some fries would get me through an entire game. shake shack is overrated. the only thing i like about their burgers and fries is the potato bun and that's definitely NOT worth standing in line for.
