Five Guys Times Square

Happy Independence Day!

We started off the day just like last year, a movie - this year was Ted, last year Transformers - followed by lunch at Five Guys.

The new Five Guys in Times Square opened recently, complete with 3 Coca Cola Freestyle machines (multi-flavor touchscreen soda fountains).  A thought the soda from these machines was not as good as regular soda, because it didn't have as much syrup.

There is a fair amount of seating at the new location, although it was also easy to find seats today since a lot of people are probably away for the 4th.

Five Guys was the perfect lunch for July 4th.  After all, what is more "American" than a lunch of cheeseburgers and (cajun) fries?

I got the little cheeseburger (1 patty) "all the way" (no mayo) plus onions and green peppers, while A got the regular cheeseburger (2 patties) all the way (no mayo) plus hot sauce and jalapeños. "All the way" means lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, ketchup and mustard (once you take out the mayo).  One of my favorite things about Five Guys is all the free toppings for the burger. It's what makes their burgers so great.  Another thing is the fries, which, in addition to the cup, "overflow" in the bag to provide another serving of fries.  They're also really tasty. I just wish they had a smaller size because it's tough for me to eat a whole order of their fries for lunch on my own (at work).

We're so glad that Five Guys is now even closer to our apartment! Our favorite burgers are probably still the Shackburgers at Shake Shack but at least now at Five Guys we can get good burgers with no lines!
