My brother went to South Surrey a few weeks ago and mentioned that there was a 5 Guys location there. They tried the North Vancouver location and said it was really good for a semi-fast food burger.
When I got in there, I knew I wanted a bacon and cheese burger, which is a double beef patty with bacon and cheese. A “little” burger is a single patty burger. I seemed like a noob, because I was ordering for my friends, and it turns out you choose your own toppings hehe.. I just started ordering a bunch of burgers, when the cashier asked if I’d been there before. They have a lot of toppings on the list. I was happy that mushrooms was on the list. My friends and I ordered 2 bacon & cheese burgers, 1 little burger, large Cajun fries, and some drinks.
Our food came in about 5 minutes, all made to order in a brown paper bag. Our large fries came in a bucket like container, filled to the top, but there was a ton of fries scattered throughout the bag too. Our burgers were huge with the amount of toppings we put on, and obviously really messy. Our burgers were kind of squished and the bread was a little big mangled but that doesn’t affect the taste.
The burgers were made to order with fresh toppings. Mine came with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, grilled onions, and grilled mushrooms. I didn’t all of the toppings on and I could taste the meat still. It tasted fresh, and not frozen. It kind of reminds me of the patties at Wendy’s but bigger and better. We got the Cajun style fries which had a little bit of heat to it. They were thicker french fries, and not as crispy as I like, but they weren’t soggy.
The burger was really good and definitely one of the better fast food burgers, however, the price is pretty high. For a double burger meal with fries and a drink you are looking at least $14 for a combo.
Potential allergy alert: the fries are deep fried in peanut oil.
