Five Guys comes to the Lincoln Mall


Lincoln Mall has recently acquired a new restaurant, the famous Five Guys. The chain restaurant began in Arlington, Virginia and is now renowned as one of the best fast-food restaurants in the nation. The restaurant has received many awards for its delicious food, including earning “Number One Burger” for seven years from Washingtonian Magazine as well as awards from twenty-one other cities from Houston, Texas to Jacksonville, Florida. Even President Obama has been known to stop by Five Guys during a work day for lunch.

The menu of Five Guys is famous for its appetizing burgers, hot dogs, and French fries. Customers can also order “little” versions of the restaurant’s burgers to sample the fare without having a full burger. There are also many options when ordering a hot dog, as the restaurant offers a kosher style hot dog, a cheese dog, a bacon dog, and a bacon cheese dog.

For those looking to spice up their meal, Cajun fries are available alongside regular fries. Five Guys also offers healthier choices for those interested, including a veggie sandwich, a cheese veggie sandwich, and a grilled cheese. A number of free toppings are available to put on any order, including the standards like ketchup and mustard, but also lesser found options like grilled mushrooms or onions and green peppers.

Due to the novelty of the restaurant and its national popularity, many who visit Five Guys find it to be exceptionally busy. However, the restaurant does not fail to meet expectations, as it is efficient and quick and the food lives up to the hype. I would encourage anyone looking for good food at a new, inexpensive restaurant to try Five Guys.
