Five Guys Burgers & Fries in Miami, Florida

Big fan, big fan! That’s right; I’ll admit my love for this place. I’ve been to Five Guys Burger and Fries all over Miami more times than I care to mention, and they consistently have great food.

The patties themselves kinda remind me of In-N-Out, fresh ground beef never frozen. You have about 15 or so toppings you can add; I usually get the bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions and mustard (just some combination that works for me).

You can get your fresh-cut fries in either Five Guys Style (regular salted) or Cajun (cajun seasoning, duh). I prefer the traditional fresh cuts, and just a heads up, the portions are pretty big.

The Cajun is great too, but the flavor can be overwhelming after a while.

I found the hot dog to be quite good. If there are some vegetarians out there, they have a grilled cheese on the menu.

Oh yeah, and they serve peanuts in bulk containers if you’re into that sort of thing. Me….I’m into burgers & fries.

All About the Burger excerpt

Five Guys Burgers and Fries was founded in 1986 by Janie and Jerry Murrell and their four sons. Eventually, a fifth son was born, and he replaced dad as the fifth guy.

The company was opening locations gradually until franchising began in 2003. That’s why Five Guys seemed like an overnight success story to some, since one minute they weren’t here and the next they were.

Another reason for the interest in Five Guys was the menu’s simplicity. So many burger joints’ menus were too bloated, so Five Guys took it back in an old-school direction with an uncomplicated menu of burgers, hot dogs, and fresh-cut fries.

Their great-tasting food explains why there are now more than 1,500 Five Guys Burgers and Fries locations worldwide.
