All summer long, I have been eyeing the empty store front in the strip mall close to work.Â “Coming Soon Five Guys” the sign on the window said.Â It seemed like an eternity…about every two weeks I’d drive to that location to get my coney dog fix across the street and that sign just kept mocking me…until last week!
That’s right, Five Guys Burgers & Fries opened in Troy, MI and I can’t be more excited.
Five Guys is a chain that started in the DC Metro area. With just a few modest stores, the five brothers (Five Guys) convinced their dad to start franchising.Â In less than 5 years, the chain has grown to include 450 stores in 30 states, working their way out west one store at a time.
There is actually a Five Guys closer to my house, but it’s in a location that just isn’t convenient and if I was to get Better Half to actually go out to eat somewhere with Lil’ Baird tagging along, well burger joints just don’t typically come to mind.Â So I waited…
I got to tell you -Â the burgerÂ was WAY worth the wait.Â But what about the BACON?Â Well let’s find out…forÂ the “Fast Food Friday” test, we ordered the bacon cheeseburger.
