Five Guys Burgers & Fries

Today, I was craving a Starbucks Caramel Brulee Latte. Unfortunately, it was only available during the Christmas season. Oh well, I still needed a Latte. Since the closest Starbucks is across the parking lot from Five Guys, and I have never been. I had to try it.

When I first saw the signs for a Five Guys "Coming Soon" to Bramalea City Centre back in October or so, I was pretty excited. From what I saw, it looked like a diner type restaurant, perfect for my family. With the new renovations in and around Bramalea City Centre, they have added some new restaurants too, but none of which I have felt very comfortable taking my 3 and 4 year old. :(

For the longest time, Sonny's has been THE place to get a yummy burger in Brampton. It's like an institution in Brampton. It also helps that  Sonny's is walking distance from my house. In the summer, Sonny's is usually where my family and I go during our after dinner walks.

Ok, enough about Sonny's, there's a new burger kid in town. Five Guys has 10 locations in Ontario, 2 more opening soon. (At least, that what their website says.) The Brampton location opened their doors in November, but this was my first visit, and it definitely won't be my last. The main thing Five Guys has over Sonny's is an indoor dining area. However, Five Guys only has burgers, hot dogs and fries. Yup, that's it. Honestly, it works. If that's what you're good at, then why mess with a good thing, right?

Five Guys in a well known American burger chain.
Very well known for their burger and fries. All over the shop
there are reviews of how awesome they are.
I do have to admit, their burgers and fries were pretty good. I wouldn't say they're the "best". I prefer the char-grilled flavour of Sonny's burgers and the option to have fries/onion ring combos or poutine, but Five Guys use fresh burgers not frozen ones and they have hand cut fries. Next time, I will ask for my bun to be toasted, if possible, and order the Cajun Style fries. They sound yummy! :)

I ordered a Bacon Cheeseburger, Hot Dog, Five Guys fries and a drink. There was so much food. The burger was huge and Logan's Hot Dog was a good size too. There were lots and lots of fries. I'm glad I only ordered a regular, rather then the large.


Oh, Five Guys also has a box of peanuts, all you can eat. I'm not sure what that is all about, but Logan couldn't stop eating them. :)

If you are in around the Bramalea City Centre area, take quick trip to Five Guys. You won't be sorry or leave hungry.

Have you been to a Five Guys location? What did you think?

Happy Eating!!  :)

P.S. I did get my latte after. :)


  1. I've never heard of them ... I'll keep an eye out, though.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. I went to one in Kingston when I was visiting my friend! I live in Bowmanville, the closest one to us is in Oshawa but I haven't been yet!
