Five Guys is coming! Five Guys is coming! Five Guys is coming!
Five Guys Burger & Fries is a DC-export, a fast-food-ish burger joint where the meat is fresh and fatty, the french fries are crisp and mindblowing, and there are bushel barrels of free peanuts to kill the wait between placing your order and being handed over your burger. It's bar-none the best non-California chain burger we've had, and if recent Five Guys openings in New York are to be believed, the lines will be out the door.
Locations are opening in Oak Park and Lincoln Park. In related news, we get happier about the burger situation here every freaking day.
