The cook’s last job must have been at “Five Guys”.
AMEN to that. I’m glad to see that I am not the only one who doesn’t genuflect to them!
We have a fledgeling burger chain which started in Newark DE called Jake’s Hamburgers. They must have flunked Burger 101 at Five Guys — dry, thin, overcooked but even SMALLER once cooked. I had a Jake’s at the new store near home, threw it out half-eaten and walked out. Their onion rings are pretty good, but the burgers – ugh.
I drove down the street to the Charcoal Pit (another local place) and got an 8-oz’er medium rare — yeah, they’ll cook them on real charcoal your way.
