This is a review of Five Guys Burger and Fries in Des Peres, MO.
I am a latecomer to the Five Guys mystique and love. My typical diet is low carb, so things like hamburger buns and fries are off the list. Still, there are times where I switch up and the latest time was last week. The wife and I felt like a good lunch, so we decided to try Five Guys. My wife had experienced them earlier in the month when she was out of town and said great things about the food.
If you’ve never been to Five Guys you are in for a treat. Your order is taken next to a sign that tells you where the potatoes were grown that are being turned into french fries. Peanuts are available to eat while you wait and everyone is extremely friendly.
There isn’t much to choose from on the menu since they specialize in burgers and fries. You can select from standard condiments but a few stood out including Grilled Onions, Grilled Mushrooms, Jalapeno Peppers, Green Peppers and A.1.® Steak Sauce.
How is the taste? Phenomenal. Seriously. It is probably the best fast food burger I have ever had. Ok, it is probably one of the top three burgers I’ve ever eaten. The fries are skin on and cooked to perfection.
What we like about Five Guys in Des Peres, MO:
Food – The food is delicious. The burgers and fries are perfect and the condiments are perfectly balanced.
Service – Friendly, accurate and engaging both times we visited.
Value – Some find it pricey, but I find it a great value for the meal. On the plus side they toss extra fries in your bag.
What we don’t like about Five Guys in Des Peres, MO:
Peanuts – This isn’t so much a dislike, but something people need to know about. They use peanut oil for the fries and offer peanuts to eat while you wait, which means anyone with a peanut allergy should stay away.
Burgers and fries are what Five Guys does to perfection. You won’t find a better burger with a great assortment of condiments anywhere else.
