Expanding waist lines
Airdrie has a new hot spot Five Guys Burgers and Fries just opened a US based burger joint moves north. Typical American portion size absolutely huge, I ordered a cheese burger with fries with all the add ons you want! If your in a rush this place is not for you, it will take 10 min as they cook everything fresh to order. If your looking for a clean neat burger this place is not for you, burger is massive and sloppy. If your looking for an occasional indulgence that leaves you messy and full this place is for you!
When you arrive your greeted with staff behind the counter announcing customers something like "2 in the door" I'm sure its something else but you get the picture. Walk to the counter and place your order, look beside you on the stack of potatoes and grab some salted peanuts in the shell fill your own drink and wait till they call your number.
After they prepare you burger its placed into a paper bag on the bottom, than go the fries after your fries go in a heaping scoop of fries are place loosely on top of everything. The burger is huge and messy, the fries are hot and fresh so over all you get a very good meal.
For a whopping 900 calories for the burger it self add all the fries and you have a huge calorie hit and should be an occasional indulgence or Airdire may see some expanding waists in the future.
