Five Guys is now in Largo!!! I've been waiting for this day for a while now. I used to work in Old-Town Alexandra and we would go to the Five Guys there all the time. Luckily, Magic Johnson is investing in PG County and we have the Largo Town Center. When I saw that Five Guys was moving in, I was sooooo excited. The people I work with even pulled an early April fools joke last week, telling me that Five Guys was open before it had actually opened. I had already eaten lunch, and I still almost grabbed my Jacket and ran out to get one of their burgers.
So what is so good about Five Guys burgers you ask? THE BEEF. I know this is not a good picture, but it is like the butcher is in the back room. FRESH, FRESH, FRESH.
The new location in Largo is a lot like the one in Alexandria. The dining area is pretty small. There are about 7 or 8 tables. The rest of the floor is reserved for all the people waiting for their number to get called out. You basically have two options. A regular burger or the mini burger. On either you can get bacon if you like. The regular burger is two beef patties and it is pretty damn huge. It's extremely hard to get your mouth all the way around it, and trust me, I have a big mouth. A mini would probably be enough for me, but it just seems wrong not to order the regular.
Choose all the toppings you want for free. They have all the standards: mayo, mustard, ketchup, onions, fried onions, mushrooms, etc, etc. Oh, Five Guys has fries too. You can get regular or cajun style. The fries are a lot like Boardwalk fries down at the shore. Be careful. The small order of fries is usually enough for everyone at the table.
Five Guys is the ultimate lunch spot. McDonalds should be shaking in their boots, cause Five Guys makes their beef look like Joan Rivers after a chemical peel.
