Best Burger In Town..

Five Guys

Having lived in Washington, D.C. a few years, you can only imagine how stoked we were to see the familiar “FIVE GUYS” sign going up just down the road at the Market Heights shopping center.  Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries originated in 1986 in Arlington, VA. Their juicy, filling burgers (a regular burger is not one..but TWO greasy patties), are right on the money!  Here are some interesting facts about the restaurant itself I found from a Tampa, Florida reviewer when a Five Guys popped up in her neighborhood:

 -Free in-the-shell peanuts in a big box at the entrance (people with peanut allergies beware; fries are also cooked in peanut oil).

– Spectacular fries, served in no-frills, no-logo, brown-paper bags that get tantalizingly besmirched with grease.

– A white board that tells you the provenance of the day’s potatoes, plus big sacks of spuds are spread around the dining room as decor.

For the whole story:

For the best burger in the Ft. Hood area, I’d say it’s Five Guys hands down….BUT because I am a Texan…I have to give props to my native burger you can easily find at any local Whataburger. If you happen to live in Texas for any amount of time without trying at least one Whataburger…SHAME ON YOU!  They are soooo good (especially if you are of the mustard variety)  and have been a family favorite for quite some time!!!
