Eat This Now: Burgers from Five Guys

Buttered buns from the griddle, fresh ground beef, and hand-cut potatoes all make Five Guys Burgers and Fries the place to drop in for a "fast" food meal in Lakewood.

Since the '80s Five Guys Burgers and Fries has been burger flippin' its way to our hearts and, in the last few years, it has spread like wild fire opening several locations in the South Sound. If you've haven eaten at Five Guys, this isn't shocking news. One greasy sackful of burgers and fries will make you a believer.

The chain burger joint serves juicy burgers from hand-formed patties that have never been frozen. Sure, the patties nestle between old-fashioned sesame seed buns, but the real treat is how your burger comes dressed. It's not all an assigned setting based on burger type. You get to choose your own toppings from the condiments such as mayo, ketchup, mustard, A1 and hot sauce to the veggies, which includes traditional toppers lettuce, tomato, onion - even fresh sliced jalapenos or green peppers and the grilled sorts such as onions and mushrooms. This means the possibilities are endless, you're not confined to just the basics.

The burgers ($6+) are cooked well-done, but not dry. Then, they are paired with your favorite toppings and a side of fries, seasoned to perfection after taking a swim in peanut oil.

It's just a good ole American fave fast food without the fast food flavor. You can even order online, though I have yet to give it a go.

FIVE GUYS BURGERS AND FRIES, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, 5605 Lakewood Towne Center Blvd., Lakewood, 253.582.4897
