Here’s what you can expect to pay:
$6.99 bacon cheeseburger
$3.89 little hamburger
$3.69 hot dog
$2.99 regular size fries
$2.19 regular drink
So, it’s pricier - and tastier, by reputation - than your average fast food place.
However, you can add as many of these toppings as you want without paying extra: jalapenos, grilled jalapenos, green peppers, A1 sauce, BBQ sauce, hot sauce, mayo, relish, onion, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, grilled onions/mushrooms/green peppers.
It appears from this map that South Dakota, Iowa, Hawaii and Alaska are the only states without a Five Guys at the moment. Some readers have mentioned Sioux City, Iowa used to have one.
Few of us have eaten at a Five Guys, but Argus Leader employees are not at all unhappy about having a restaurant between the office and the parking lot. The used car dealership that occupies that space didn’t even serve cookies.
I wonder though if Five Guys be too pricy for some.
When David Montgomery interviewed here, he asked about $5 lunch options within walking distance. I don’t know if this fits the bill.
(To be updated with Montgomery’s response.)
Montgomery on whether it passes his $5 lunch test: “No, it doesn’t. Looks like it’s about the downtown SF standard of $7-$8 lunches, if you skip drinks.”
