5 Guys Burgers & Fries



The burger place that I’ve heard so much about, 5 Guys Burgers and Fries, just opened a location in Westport, Connecticut at 534 Post Road East. So was it worth it? Did it live up to the hype?

The answer to both those questions…most definitely!!!

5 Guys is not your typical frozen patty burger place. Everything at 5 Guys is fresh. When you walk in there are sacks of potatoes everywhere. Even the peanut shells on the floor might throw you off a little bit. But why not have a little snack why you wait?

A cheeseburger at 5 Guys goes for $5.29 and a bacon cheeseburger is $5.99. Not too bad when you consider that toppings are included. Grilled onions, mushrooms, mayo, ketchup, hot sauce, and jalapenos are some of the toppings you can choose from. Apparently there are thousands of different burger combinations. I can honestly say it was one of the best burgers I have had the experience to wrap my taste buds around. Juicy, cheesy, and it was especially good the way I had it, with bacon, cheese, and shrooms.

The fries were delicious. Fresh and fried in peanut oil so allergy people beware! Getting a large was a mistake since they were so plentiful that they flowed out of the bag. The leftover fries looked like an order by themselves!

My friends and I found the soda selection especially cool. Now ok, it’s just soda but to see Mr. Pibb and Mellow Yellow among others was kind of a big deal.

If you’re a burger fan you should make a trip to your nearest 5 Guys if you haven’t already. Westport’s location is open seven days a week from 11am-10pm; they can be reached at (203)557-4250.

  1. I love this place! I'm such a burger junkie. From Duchess to Wendy's, 5 Guys and Overton's. But 5 Guys is in my top 3 Great Burger Places. Consistently great burgers, always perfect fries. You just can't go wrong….I'm realizing digging through this blog at this time of night was a huge mistake. I could totally go for a burger, heavy on the caramelized onions.

    Haha. If you like spicy, try one with jalapenos and hot sauce. Very dangerous. Never tried a hot dog at 5 Guys yet. It's a burger place but I'm still curious.

    A new burger place in town is Beach Burger. I will refrain from revealing too much now since that review will be published on CTBites first, then on here after.
