Recently I went down to the southern part of our state. (Read that, more populated with a wider variety of restaurants, stores, etc!) Up here in Northern New Hampshire, where I live, we have a McDonalds restaurant and a Dunkin’ Donuts! But as far as any other chain restaurants, we simply do not have them.
Oh, I’ve seen Burger King, and I do love Kentucky Fried Chicken, and I have a real love affair going with Krispy Kreme Donuts. I also have eaten at a number of Chinese Restaurants as well as a down home country kitchen type of place where they serve food like Mama used to make!
Anyway, while I was down south waiting for Savannah’s arrival and then seeing her for the first few days, I had a chance to get a meal at a place I had never been to before. In fact, although I vaguely knew of this place, I thought that all the great talk was publicity hype.
I went to 5 Guys Burger & Fries!
When I went in I was greeted by a nice young woman who seemed to guess I was a newbie. She explained the menu, and after I ordered a single patty bacon cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato and ketchup, and a small french fry, with a diet coke, handed me a container of peanuts to munch, while I waited.
Well, it just smelled wonderful in there and I laughed, thinking about all the days I’d enjoyed burgers in my life. But nothing prepared me for my first 5 Guys Burger!
Or their equally wonderful french fries!
I had tears in my eyes as I ate this juicy burger and also ate the hand cut fries! Occasionally I stopped to sip my Coke, but oh, my burger was just the best!
I was sitting there, in sheer Heaven, when the cook came over. It was mid afternoon and not too busy, and he wanted to see how I liked my burger.
I found it hard to speak. Somehow I managed to tell him that I had not had such a great burger since my Dad and Uncle George used to grill burgers at Goodwill Park in Falmouth, Massachusetts when I was a kid.
He smiled, and proudly told me that all the meat is top grade, never frozen and delivered daily! He then pointed to sacks of potatoes all over the shop and told me that they make (cut) all their fries! He was very proud. He should be. All those things really do make a big difference and makes “5 Guys Burger and Fries” different from all the rest.
I was really sad when I came to the end of the burger, wiped my mouth, and tossed my paper products into the bin.
5 Guys Burger and Fries is located at 341 Amherst St. Nashua, NH 03063. Definitely a great place to stop when you feel like having the best burger in your life!
