If you look through our blog or follow us on instagram it's no secret we like In N Out, but this is not what this post is about. Yes In N Out is great, way better than Five Guys so suck it Andrew, but what's even better is sharing a meal with your friends. Going out to lunch or dinner, maybe if you're up early enough for breakfast, with a good friend never disappoints. What could be better? Go hit up one of your friends to grab a bite. Catch up on life if it's been awhile or just share some crazy experience you had the day before. Either way it's a recipe for a good time.
Have you ever heard of The Counter? Better question; Have you ever eaten at the counter? If you have then pat yourself on the back and relish in the memory of that delicious burger you ate. That is if you ate a burger, they offer more than just burgers. For those of you that don't know about The Counter or know about it and have yet to enjoy their offerings, listen up because this next part's for you. The Counter is a restaurant that offers options. They give you a traditional menu that you can order off of, but the true options come on the 'Build Your Own Burger' menu. It is exactly what you think it is, you build your own burger. You get to choose your burger, your cheese, your toppings, your sauce(s), and your bun. Sounds amazing right? Well it is.
The Counter includes everyone. They will leave no man or woman's stomach aching in with hunger pains. They offer beef, chicken, turkey, veggie and whatever the market selection is (which can be anything from pork to seafood). There is no excuse to not come and enjoy The Counter. Creatation is encourage and you may even name your creation if you feel it's deserving. Pineapple Express if you were wondering. That's what the name of my burger up top with the grilled pineapple is called. I went with a 1/3 lb. beef patty top with grilled pineapple, grilled onions, a lettuce blend and soy ginger glaze on a hamburger bun. Smart.
The only warning I give to you is choose wisely. Think your selections through. Don't just start checking boxes. Really take the time and make sure that each and every one of your choices will compliment the next. Remember, at one point, this is going to be eaten by you so make it good. With that being said, don't be afraid to experiment. I know I just kinda told you to play it safe, but that's boring. I'm not saying go crazy and get weird with it, but definitely try some things you would never think to try. Don't be afraid to ask you waiter or waitress, they are there to help you on your journey and will steer you in the right direction.
Get over there fast my friends. Go enjoy a taste of greatness.
I went and got some food with my friend Timmy.
He got Cha, but I was feeling American so I got a burger.
In N Out, never disappointing.
Last night Timmy and I embarked on a journey involving burgers, fries and drinks at a little place called Five Guys. If you have never heard of Five Guys let me drop a few lines for ya. In 1986, the first Five Guys opens in Arlington, Virginia. They have won multiple awards for their food, give you complete control on what goes on your burger and is known as the East coast In-N-Out. They offer hamburgers, cheese burgers, hotdogs, veggie burgers, fries, and of course peanuts. They also have bacon so you can add that to your menu picks as well. They offer endless peanuts for their customers to eat while you are waiting for you food. They literally have boxes sitting around; straight stacks on stacks. They also have peanut shells all over the restaurant. They are every where you go. It's almost like a game to try to find where they aren't present.
If you have never had Five Guys you should change that as soon as possible, also known as ASAP. Timmy has never had Five Guys, so that's exactly what we did. We changed that ASAP. Five Guys offers a solid cheese burger/hamburger, some delicious fries and a wonderful array of fountain drinks. If you want to enjoy an american cheese burger you have come to the right place. It's not the best though let that be known. They are also a little on the pricey side. If you want a burger, fries, and a drink you're looking at spending more than ten dollars. I have no problem going there and dropping that because it's a great meal. If the food is great, the price doesn't matter to me.
With all that said, is Five Guys better than In-N-Out?
The answer is No. Get outta here with that crazy talk.
In-N-Out is, and will always be better than Five Guys. Go ahead and try to argue with me. You really can't. There is no argument. Better food, better prices and better locations. But what about all the awards they’ve won? Who cares. Put up your awards, we’ll be eating better food at In-N-Out. Nothing with compare to an In-N-Out cheeseburger. It will trump anything out there and will always leave you wanting more. I could have In-N-Out for lunch and go back for dinner. I don't want to do that at Five Guys. Don't get me wrong I enjoy my meal at Five Guys, but I don't want to eat it all over again like I do at In-N-Out. I am California through and through and that means In-N-Out 'til I die.
In-N-Out > Five Guys.
