Five Guys’ burgers are pretty fine, but what makes the place is the fries. Their fries are natural cut, with skins, from fresh potatoes. Fried right in front of the customers, their scent wafts and tantalizes everyone within a block radius. And when they are finished cooking the fries, Five Guys doesn’t just give them to you, they stuff the bags with them: a large order easily serves four.
