Burgers
« on: February 24, 2009, 07:01:35 PM »
Carl's Jr. has been my favorite since 1996. I don't know anything about Five Guys.

(This is in reference to the poll at Dan's website.)
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Carl's Jr. Would have been my favorite prior to a couple of months ago, when we finally got a Five Guys here in Utah. It's place SE has been raving about for years, and now that I've had the chance to try it, it completely lives up to the hype. Delicious.

Looks like there is one 3 miles away from here. What do you recommend?

Five Guys is one of these In'n'Out-style joints where there's only four options: a burger, with or without cheese, with or without bacon. Then you add a bunch of free toppings at your pleasure. Surprisingly, the burgers themselves are so good that you don't actually NEED cheese or bacon, unlike some other places I could name. And the fries are great.

I went by the Salt City Burger Factor (at least i think its called that). It was ok. They grind up bacon and cook it into the beef. Its kinda like an up-scale Fuddruckers.

Wait, Fell, you would willingly refuse bacon!?

I said the burgers didn't need bacon; obviously I still get it anyway. The only thing better than bacon is senseless, hedonistic bacon.

So Dan and I (joined by the ever-cherished Lovebasket) went there today, and I was quite impressed. Not as inexpensive as In'n'Out or EZ Takeout, but I liked it a lot more. And they have Cajun fries! I've missed those so much since Barry's closed down. Anyway, I highly recommend them.

Perhaps it means Shaggy needs to take a break to recover?
