Five Guys Burgers and Fries a top pick


Recently established on the corner of Middlefield and Broadway in downtown Redwood City, Five Guys Burgers and Fries offers a simple menu with an East Coast kick.

With cheap prices, it’s a great place to get a bite right after a movie. It also has a relatively spacious seating area and outdoor seating options, so there’s no need to wait for a place to sit.

Similar to In-N-Out, the Five Guys menu has the limited option of burgers and fries. Despite the restricted selection of meals, there are 72 different toppings that one can mix and match for an almost new tasting burger every time. The prices tend to stay on the cheaper side no matter what toppings are chosen.

I ordered a mini cheeseburger with all the toppings, hot sauce, and Cajun fries. The mini cheeseburger contains just one patty instead of two. All the toppings complimented each other nicely, with an extra flavor of hot sauce to top it off.

Unlike other burger joints, the Five Guys menu has an option between Cajun fries and regular fries.

Carlmont high school student Reggie Chatman said, “The first time I went I didn’t get the Cajun fries, it was a huge mistake.”

With great customer service and food, Five Guys is the perfect place to go to with family or friends.
