Beaverton, OR – Five Guys Review

20111012-FreestyleMachine-MainIt’s funny that the second time I’d end up at Five Guys that it would be the same location that I first visited, three or four years ago.   It’s when Five Guys was still rather novel, and especially to Portland, as it was the first location  – in the SW burb of Beaverton.  I apparently was not moved enough to review it the first visit, at least I don’t see it in my archives.  I do remember a couple of things about it, 1) I thought it was spendy, and 2) you get a boatload of fries.  Oh, and free peanuts.

Nothing much has changed at the Beaverton Five Guys, except there were only three guys there.  I went with the “Little” Burger;  upon inquiring as to its weight, I confused the counter help.  Who. Couldn’t.  Help.

It’s an adequate burger and still a boatload of fries.  And still spendy.  1 burger, 1 small fries, 2 drinks, nigh onto $15.   The late Mrs Burgerdogboy and I had a better burger down the road at the Fresh Grill back in the day.  Five Guys is slow, too, no matter how busy or empty they are.

But Five Guys is a better burger than many –  certainly than McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, and In N Out.  I think Steak N Shake is a better value, and prefer the taste of Fatburger patties.

I do like that Five Guys has the Coke Freestyle machine, allowing you to make crazy ass mixtures of soda.  But a word of advice, skip the Coke Zero Lime.
