Five guys is a decent burger, but really doesn't have enough of a menu to really push people out of business.

I like Smashburger better.

Not with their prices....... . I mean its good but $20 for myself and daughter to eat a hamburger & hot dog.....

I really like five guys burgers but I don't go there very often. It is kinda spendy. I have never been to an in-n-out but they do have a lot of followers here so I doubt they are in much trouble.

I've seen video of five guys taking over an in and out. That was one busy chick with a talent for multitasking.

There is almost no Kool-Aid as strong as In N Out Kool-Aid.

Now way!!!! I mean seriously?  How fricking gay is that?

I would rather have a nice in and out with a chick than have 5 guys pile on me.  What the hell kind of question is this?

5 dudes or a nice in and out with a chick?


What has GD turned into?

In-N-Out isn't all that great in my opinion. They are OK. MY biggest beef with them is that they refuse to stock mayo. I have been to two different restaurants here and neither had or would put it on my burger. It's not like going to a restaurant and asking that they use 'Dillo Dust with my order. Mayo is a pretty damn common condiment. I won't go back. I haven't been to Five Guys.

If there's any place that five guys would be more preferable to a little in-n-out, it's California.

I think five guys has a better burger but I love animal style at in and out.  I wish we had them here.

None of the burger chain joints are great, NONE OF EM.



If Five Guys opens more feeding holes than In N Out so what.. (McDonalds has more than both and its not stopping either of them)
I tried five guys once... that was enough for me, it thought SUCKED, maybe it was just the location .. I don't know but it was like Wendy's if they took longer and didn't have a drive through.
In N Out, I like them more than other burger joints, but thats really not saying a lot anyway.
The only good places to get burgers are not chains (esp not burger chains), if you live somewhere that this is not the case, that sucks for you.



There was a bar down the street from a place I lived that had real burgers, I used to just pick one up from them every time I wanted a burger.

Five guys would take over Mcdonalds if their prices were reasonable
Link Posted: 4/8/2011 10:52:42 AM EDT
Five Guys is too expensive.  In-N-Out is half the price.

And this is why they have nothing to worry about.



You can get a #1 with drink for $6.

I was thinking about going to In N Out for lunch today but I notice that a 5 Guys just opened nearby. I wanna check it out but it would cost over $10 when I can spend $6 at In N Out. Hmmm....

You must have had some terrible whoopie, my friend.

The only thing that isn't better than In/Out is perhaps cockroach shit.  And that's even debatable.

Nah.  Whataburger has gone terrificly down hill in the last decade or so.
I won't eat there anymore.

Ok I decided to give them a shot.

Pros:
Bacon.
Lots of bacon.
Good bacon not that floppy, soggy fast food crap.
Did I say bacon?
More menu options than In N Out
More burger condiments than In N Out
Dare I say it is a better burger than In N Out?

Cons:
Expensive
Even busier than In N Out which is really saying something. Might have to do with it only being open for a month though.

I got the Little Bacon Cheeseburger which is the single instead of the double, a regular cajun fry, and a large drink and it ran me almost $11. Now the regular fry is friggin huge making it pointless to ever get a large(I ended up splitting one with the guy I went with) but I'd much rather save a buck and get a smaller fry. If they could get what I ordered down to $8 it would be worth it over In N Out. As it stands, it won't be replacing In N Out for me. I can see it splitting duty with Red Robin though.

As a born and bred In-n-Out loyalist, I have eaten at Five Guys numerous times and have never, ever left satisfied.  Huge burger =/= good burger.





Smashburger is so-so also.





In-n-Out isn't going anywhere.

 That's because mayo on a burger is absofuckinglutely disgusting.

I've never eaten at either place. I'd like to try In n out though.

In-n-Out doesn't put ketchup on your burger unless you explicitly ask.

Won't happen. While they make a good burger, Five Guys is way too expensive.

When I was in Iraq most everyone had pictures cut out of maxim of women in bikinis all over their locker and wall. My team leader only had one picture on his wall. It was from Maxim's article on best burger, and it was a DOUBLE DOUBLE.

I wish I could have found an In N Out when I was in southern CA (or if I had known about them back then) so I'd know what I was missing.



That said, I'll keep supporting Five Guys as they're likely one of the best burgers around plus they are a chain that started locally here in VA. Plus Cajun Fries.
Link Posted: 4/8/2011 1:13:39 PM EDT
Five Guys only exists because they have a very small core of fanbois that trick other people to go there. Once.



If you fuck everyone out of $11 once, you'll be set for life.
Link Posted: 4/8/2011 1:20:57 PM EDT
Never been to In N Out, don't have them here.  There is a Five Guys in town, and the burgers are pretty decent, about as good as Whataburger.  Five Guys "Cajun" fries are total shit.  They're just regular fries, doused in  some shitty seasoning powder.  Gross.  Five Guys is also pricey.

I love In-N-Out, worked at #10 in the SFV when I was a kid and got to see first hand the fresh product being used.



That being said, my wife and I went to The Habit a few weeks ago and it was excellent.  I suggest anyone in SoCal find one and try it.  They are not very expensive, but their burgers and fries are great!



btw, no one beats In-N-Out's shakes...
