FIVE GUYS is the absolute best fast food restaurant in terms of food quality. Go there if you haven't. Maybe the best burger I've tasted period.

I've found Five Guys to be very inconsistent. Their burgers are ok, but their fries leave a lot to be desired. I'd eat there again, but I wouldn't really go out of my way to do so- especially for the price.

True. You throw some classic McDonalds fries in that brown bag and then you might have something. Five Guys fries to stringy and soggy generally..

We have a local place with only a couple locations, that's similar to Five Guys in price and style, called BYOBurger (Build Your Own Burger). You walk in, and grab a clip board with a form on it that allows for thousands of burger/topping/bun combinations. Then you just hand it to the cashier and pay.

I really, really dig the place. Their burgers are great, and their onion rings are sensational!

Here's their order form:

Another Hardee's opened near me- they rarely last in my neck of the woods and it drives me nuts. I think Hardee's is really good! when we'd take road trips down south we always hit one up :)

KenJennings, that burger place sounds awesome!!

hardee's rules - lots of snobs don't like it and no one's ever there after 10 AM but it's better than 99% of fast food burgers in my area.

An old school Hardee's fan here. Gotta give them credit, they always had a chili dog or two waiting every time I showed up. Not to many chili dogs any place else. I also would frequent Dairy Queen like a maniac for that reason too. Love me some chili dogs!! Somehow I always would end up with a banana pudding blizzard also.... Yummo :)

I buy a crate of Nathan's 1/4 lb Polish Dogs from the sams club snack bar every year. It's about a hundred bucks, but it's 30lbs of real top-notch, high quality hot dogs. Lasts me almost a whole year, including my annual Christmas chili dog party. I highly recommend the investment if you have the freezer space.

I haven't had BK in decades.  That shit made me sick back in the 70s, so I've literally been their about 5 times since I was young.  I don't care for McDonalds, unless there is no other place to eat (I concur about their fries. They are the best, as long as they are hot.  Something happens to them after they cool off).  I think Five Guys is over rated.  If I have to eat fast food, I prefer Wendy's.

When I was in high school in the 80s, I worked at Taco Bell.  I don't know how much has changed in the last 25 years, but when I worked there, everything was fresh.  The beans were even cooked in a pressure cooker.  We grated fresh cheese and lettuce each morning.  Onions and tomatoes were also cut fresh each morning.  But a LOT can change in 25 years. ;)

Last time I went to Hardees I didn't care for it at all. Shame because my hometown had the first one to open.

I guess I'll be alone with the Five Guys praise then. I've had it four times since it landed in town and each time it was phenomenal. I haven't been to Carl's Jr in years.

I was hesitant to try Five Guys at all because of how many people recommended it, as I might have already mentioned people did that with In N Out and honestly it just tasted like crap once I finally went. I remember my brother joking with me when he couldn't convince me to go with him, "What's your problem with Five Guys? Are you homophobic?" :D

I used to eat at Hardee's regularly - I lived in the godforsaken outpost then known as Alpharetta and it was just about the only game in town - in the 90's and their burgers were really good.  They had a "Frisco Melt" that was 2 burgers, bacon, and cheese on toasted sourdough.

No, you're not alone. Choosing from what's available in my neck of the woods, Five Guys is the only fast food burger I'll eat, and despite some of the earlier comments in this thread, I love their fries.

I liked In-N-Out when I had it in Cali some years ago, but I haven't had it available to me since.
