Five Guys Burger

Note: This is not an actual picture of my food.  I was hungry
and at it all.

Yeah, I'm trying (somewhat unsuccessfully) to eat healthier, but yesterday I decided to break down and I took my wife to Five Guys Burgers in Vacaville for a lunch date (Note: my wife disagrees with the terminology "eating healthier" because she views portion control as different from eating healthier). It was some grubbin food.

The menu was a little different, because a "little cheeseburger" is full size, but there is only one burger patty.  A regular has two.  I like their thinking.

My wife ordered a "little cheeseburger" and I had a double patty bacon cheeseburger.  We split an order of large fries and a drink.  I've heard some great things about Five Guys, but read some not too flattering reviews of the place online.  After eating there myself, I'm not sure why I saw any negative reviews.  They are amazing!  The bacon was cooked to perfection, I received a heaping portion of grilled and regular onions, the fries were some of the best I've ever had.  Crunchy on the outside, still fluffy in the middle, and more salt than is normally put on fries.

The atmosphere of the restaurant a quaint, 1950's-esque diner.  Very much like a quieter, more expensive version of In-N-Out.

That brings me to my final point and the only negative: price.  For a burger joint like Five Guys, I think $20 is a little expensive for two burgers, a large order of fries and a drink.  Mouthwatering food, but pricey.  Not sure when I will be back because of cost, but I will definitely be back.
