Five Guys Opens Next Week

By: Mr. Wilson on May 3, 2010
According to the men working outside Five Guys -- Downtown at 13th and P -- last week, Lincoln's newest burger joint will open next Monday. If early buzz is any indication, it will be packed. If you want to be the first in line I recommend setting up camp soon.


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

Travel Channel just did a segment on them last night. All fresh ingredients every day. They don’t own a freezer or a microwave. Said something about double cooking their taters that I didn’t quite get. Looked like they do a short fry to cook them, then a second fry later to crisp them up. I thought frying them again made them soggy, but maybe not.

Cool article BorK!

Great article. That’s my kind of franchise company. I am looking forward to trying it, but we won’t be able to make it a family destination due to a peanut allergy. Bummer!

I just can’t get over the way in which they’ve completely co-opted the In-N-Out identity. And their packaging seems to suggest they won a bet on creating the most amount of trash per customer.

In all seriousness, for me the significance of 5 Guys coming to town are more the fries than the burgers. The fries at 5 Guys are awesome. There are a number of places here in town that make really good burgers, but how many fast casual places make freshly-made fries? Not many I would reckon.

Huge burger snob here and I hit up Omaha often just to eat burgers and play pinball.  Lots of places use fresh high quality beef, but five guys just does everything really well and that is rare around here.

Misty’s, parkway lanes, howards pantry, the Tam, and from what I hear the green Gateu do it up right.  Stauffers does not have a huge burger, but it is so well made.  They took my #1 years back when I did a BCB adventure.

Five guys is close to the quality and mission of in - n - out burger.  We are lucky to have them here and I am sure it will slay.

Every now and then we just need to grab a burger and Runza or Culvers filled the bill.  From now on, only five guys will.

The price of your plane ticket should bring your meal to just over $289. Enjoy.
