Yum, yum, yum!

So, has the suspense been killing you? Hope not, I would really hate to think I had that much hold on my readers ;o)

When we last met, I was going on and on about our first night in Atlantic City. After we checked in and before we went swimming, we checked out the BEST restaurant around for a quick hamburger and fries. I must say it again, THE BEST!!

Warning....viewing the next few photos may cause your arteries clog and mysterious weight to attach to your behind!



If you haven't cheated and looked at the photos yet, I'm talking about 5 Guys.

We are the type that always like to try new things when we are on vacation. You can find the golden arches or little red-headed girl everywhere, but sometimes you are in the mood to try the local cuisine. We actually stumbled on this place while trying to turn around and get over to a gas station. At this time of night we were just hungry and were not in the mood to get all fancied up for a sit-down.


Inside the 5 Guys restaurant of Atlantic City.

Walking in, the place was very clean and organized. The menu board was simple, but not the decision. There were a lot of combinations and choices, but we just couldn't decide. We had to ask for recommendations. The guys (and gal) behind the counter really gave some super suggestions. Now for the wait.


Here's the crew...these guys ROCKED!

While you wait, there are boxes of shelled peanuts for the customers to snack on to get things started off right. We really only had to wait about 5 minutes or so while our order was made. Brown-bagged and ready to go, our order was up! Imagine our delight when we opened up our foil-wrapped sandwiches...


Please, don't drool on your keyboard!
Here's the burger Matt had--what a monster!


And the fresh-cut fries! She literally gave us a grocery sack full of them!

The fries...wow! These were just like the heart-attack fries you get at the fairs and carnivals. I don't know if she made too many or if she thought we needed them but I noticed the woman working just scooping the fries into a brown sack. It seems when she finished filling the cups that she didn't need the rest she dropped, so just our luck :o)


Taylor was a happy camper!

Two thumbs up! We even chatted up with the crew a bit before we headed back to our rooms. 5 Guys...we will be back!!

Have a favorite local restaurant? I'd love to hear from ya! Who knows, we may stop by sometime!

Until next time...

We have a Five Guys!! Well, in the nearest "big" town, there is one...haha! Everyone loves the fries, you are exactly right, they're so much like fair fries, YUMMY! Plus you get a gazillion, so what's not to love, right?

Cara said...

They just opened one here by me. We went a few weeks ago. OMG...those fries piled on top of the paper bag in the middle of the table were a MOUNTAIN...and delicious. I probably won't be back anytime soon because I can feel my thihgs betting bigger just talking about it though...but yummy!!!

Although it is a bit early for lunch, that is making my mouth water! Yum!

Ruby Tuesdays has great big yummy burgers and a great salad bar.

We also like Olive Garden, Hometown Buffet and Golden Corral (although the last two are buffets).

Congrats on your SITS Day!

Hi there! *waving* I'm visiting from SITS. Great blog! I like your background music too. It looks like I'm going to have to try 5 Guys - I've heard so many good things about their burgers.

Rook No. 17 said...

Oh, great! It's 7:17 a.m. and I'm already drooling over a burger. Today's not looking good for the diet. Must travel to 5 Guys! Must have burger the size of my head...

Emmy said...

Last time we were in Utah we ate at Five Guys.. and yeah we will be eating there every time we go to Utah now, SO GOOD!

Christina said...

Mmm... fries DO sound good right now. Especially fresh ones made from real potatoes (who knows what McD's fries are *really* created from?).

Glad you guys had fun!

Happy SITS day!

Zeemaid said...

Happy FB SITS day to you!

Holy Cow!!! (pardon the pun!) is that really what a 5-guys burger looks like?!? My husband says they're the best too, but I've never been. No wonder he likes 'em so much! (giggle)

Oh wow! I've never been to Five Guys but some of my friends have. It sounds like people either LOVE it or really don't care for it. I'll have to try it out!

Shannon said...

Looks awesome. I'll definitely have to check it out next time I'm in AC. I love a good homemade burger joint.
