New best burger in the triangle

ben f | Jan 18, 2005 07:43 AM

Stupidly, my wife and I went to southpoint Saturday night. The crowds were truly horrendous.

Making up for it however was the newly opened Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries, in the food court. I don't think I've ever had food in a food court that I really liked, but these were honestly some of the best burgers I've ever had. They have an extremely limited menu (burgers, smaller burgers, hot dogs, and grilled cheese, and fries) and I think that's the trick.

It was extremely busy when we went. after placing our order we were given a pager which buzzed when our food was ready (a nice touch that I hope occurs even when they're not busy).

I wasn't a huge fan of the fries, they're your basic faux Thrashers fries... But the burger was masterful. Two small patties rather than one large one to keep from overcooking, with plenty of burger grease soaked into the bun, fried onions and bacon that was actually crispy...
