Five Guys Burgers, Dedham

Five guys, a Philly based burger chain, has been called the east coast In-N-Out by some people, and that was enough for R to want to go. Friday was a lovely warm spring night and mini golf seemed like a great way to enjoy the weather. After I crushed R, Chucky, and Alice (2 under par, and 2 holes in one!) a celebratory burger, fries and shake seemed in order.


We went to the Dedham location. It is nestled in a strip mall. We were disappointed to find that they do not serve shakes. Instant demerits for that - what kind of burger joint doesn’t have shakes? We both ordered a bacon cheese burger with Cajun fries. We were unimpressed. The burger was squished, the bun was a little soggy, and of course, the meat is overcooked, as you can’t order its doneness. The fries were on the limp side and the Cajun seasoning was underwhelming. I don’t understand the hype. Our two burgers and large fries came to $14 and at this price point, I should be able to say more than, eh, the burger is better than McDonald’s (but not the fries).


R is itching to go to Sonic, now that it has arrived in Massachusetts. Prepare to be underwhelmed some more.
