It's way better than fast food places like McD's or Burger King or whatever. The cajun fries are good. And at least where I live, they are accessible. Shake Shack (another overpriced burger option) is way better but isn't accessible. That's really about it though.

Yeah, I think the cajun fries at 5 guys are pretty legit. Their burgers are pretty average though, nothing particularly "special" about them. I agree that the whole peanut shell thing is fucking disgusting and is part of the reason I haven't been to one in probably 2 or 3 years.

Well, for some of us, that is kind of the appeal of Five Guys. Their burger tastes like a proper burger that you would cook yourself.

The same can't be said for burgers from McDonalds & Burger King. They serve up processed dumpster food that is designed in a lab.

Is it like macaroni and cheese type sauce? I love the regular hot chicken and even the 2x spicy but I haven't tried that one.
it looks like the same poweder from kraft mac n cheese, but... pungent? anyway the cheese seems to make the spicy easier to go down, still mouth burning, if you like the regular black, give this a try, you'll probably like it too.

I had high hopes for these. The picture looks great and the actual product looked pretty similar once I got it made. The breading was good, sauce was pretty standard buffalo. The chicken closely resembled wet toilet paper in appearance and texture. Disgusting. Worse yet, I got the "value size" so half of them are still in the freezer. Half a point higher than the cheese sticks because the sauce was decent. 2.5/10

I've eaten plenty of these out of the microwave. I suspected it would be better from the oven and it was. I would seriously go to a diner and order these. The crust is just amazing for a frozen dinner and the filling is very good as well. If they weren't 900 calories I would eat them all the time. The only downside is that they take an hour to cook in the oven. 9/10

Those are delicious and I always burn my damn tongue eating them.

Yup, those are pretty serious value for the money. They're cheap, tasty, and filling. What more could you ask for?

Also, damn, that's a lot of loose lumber you've got to work with there. And weirdly sized 2x4s.

You guys bitching about Sonic are just stupid. All fast food joints have shit you can order and shit you don't order. The main reason to go to Sonic is Cherry Limeade

Sonics, Route 44, yeah. They should start selling lottery tickets, spare parts and fuel. They're already selling truck-stop food.

The messy pile is the trim I pulled out of the upstairs, to be replaced with a different color of 1x4 pine trim. The 2x4s on top of it are just scraps left from framing. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it but it seems like a shame to just burn all those 1x4s for being the wrong color so there will probably be something built out of oddly colored 1x4s around here somewhere one of these days.

I couldn't throw them out, either. Obviously there will be some point in my life where I could use them. Right?
