Is Five Guys Burgers and Fries Worth the Price?
Five Guys Burgers and Fries will be making its Yakima debut very soon. I'm excited for it as I'm sure many are, but I think Yakima will be in for a shock when they see the prices are somewhere between casual dining and fast food. The question many will ask is "Is it worth the price?"
Quick answer: I think so, on occasion.
As great as the food is, you have to keep in mind that you shouldn't compare Five Guys to most fast-food restaurants. You get your food fast, but it separates itself from many other places on several levels.
First of all, there are no combo meals. If you want a burger, fries and a drink you're paying separately for each item.
Also, there is no kids menu. They do have items like a "little cheeseburger" on the menu, but even the little cheeseburger costs more than $5.
Finally, needless to say, there is no value menu. You won't find burgers for $1. I took my family to the Issaquah location this past weekend and, for a family of five, I paid around $50.
You will find super delicious food that keeps you satisfied, though, so every once in a while Five Guys Burgers and Fries is definitely worth checking out.
