Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries

3401 N. Miami Ave., Ste 214 Miami, FL 33127 | Midtown/Wynwood/Design District | 305-571-8345

Location Description:

Like the West Coast's renowned family-owned In-N-Out Burger chain, East Coast eatery Five Guys (whose original family-owned restaurant opened in 1986, nearly 40 years after I-N-O) has retro 1950s d├ęcor and serves a limited specialized menu centering on hand-formed fresh - never frozen - burgers, and fries made from fresh potatoes. But there are differences, some good for Miamians: At Five Guys, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and bacon cheeseburgers come in two sizes: double or plenty ample single patty. Kosher hot dogs are also available. There's more choice of free toppings. Fries come two ways (regular or spicy Cajun). And there are free peanuts while you wait. Not such good differences: Five Guys doesn't have I-N-O's pink Big Mac-style "spread" or I-N-O's legendary "secret menu" of options. Perhaps because Five Guys is now franchised, cooking quality is not reliable, either. The famed fries can be mighty soggy. Still, both burgers and fries beat offerings at the McJunkfood King chains.
