Celiac's Review of Five Guys Burgers

After reading allanh  go on about this place, I was bummed that there wasn't one near me. A few months pass and the situation is rectified. Every other Friday morning I have a babysitter come over and watch the kids while I run around the valley crazed trying to get a bunch of errands done. So I stopped here for lunch today.

Overall score: 2 out of 10.

Why so bad?

I ordered the little bacon cheese burger, small fry and a bottle of water. They get points for not blinking when I said no bun. The Fries were, in fact, awesome! And gluten free, a big bonus. However, the burger is completely responsible for the low score. It could have tasted good. I'm not sure. 'Cause I did not get a Bacon Cheese Burger. What I got was one of the most unappetizing and unappealing things I've eaten in a long time. What I received was a bunch of little piles of stuff (grilled onions, crumbled bacon, grilled mushrooms, pickles) with a cheese burger placed on top. On top of that a couple of slices of tomato. And on top of that was a large pile of chopped lettuce. All wrapped up in a SINGLE layer of foil. I wish to goodness I had a smartphone so I could have taken a picture of the mess they served me. It was awful. And then I had to go back to the counter to get a knife and fork to eat the damn thing. And the single layer of foil kept ripping so my food was actually touching the table. Eww!

I'm sorry, but when I go out for a burger, I want something I can pick up and eat with my hands. These guys might have an awesome product, but their delivery for the gluten intolerant needs some serious work. It might be worth it to go back for the fries and maybe a hot dog, but I'm not sure. In the mean time, I'll just stick with In -n- Out or Carl's Jr for a burger. Both of them serve a burger than can be eaten properly. And they are pretty damn good too.
