It’s weird how reading about stuff on the internet makes you want it. Everything’s really accessible too, so if you see something you want, it’s relatively easy to get it.
For example, I read about Five Guys’ fries on the Instagram, and it made me want it. Could’ve ignored it, I guess, but I pitched the idea to my friends, and a bunch of them were down, so we went to Five Guys. I think everyone needs friends like that. You can just message them on the day and decide to go to get Five Guys. I get that it’s not always going to be like that, but I just thought I’d be grateful for it today.
Also, Five Guys? It’s pretty good. It’s the 100 emoji personified. (I might not be using the term personified correctly, but do I care? Yeah. I googled it. It’s close enough.) I got the fries and a salted caramel milkshake. Both were class.
Also, the place is really well designed in my opinion. Their colours, red and white, go well together, not unlike the perfection of colour-juxtaposition that is the red velvet cake. There’s a variety of different seating types, including booths tucked into the walls and high chairs at windows so you could, if you were so-inclined, look out and watch the unfortunate people who aren’t having Five Guys at that moment. There are positive reviews on the walls in the form of quotes and magazine articles, and they sort of reinforce the idea that the food that you are currently having is good. Those reviews also make you think about each ingredient, such as the tomatoes or the beef, and they make you think about what you’re eating, so you kind of go, “Hmm, yeah, I can taste that. This stuff really is good, and it’s good for me.” The music isn’t what I expected, but it’s not so loud that you’re forced to pay attention to it, so it was okay. Finally, the last thing I noticed is that the place is really well lit. Can’t go in depth because I can’t really explain it, but it’s nice.
Basically, I’d recommend going to Five Guys with your friends. It’s bound to be a good time.
