The parking lot at Five Guys Burgers and Fries always seems to be full. Ever since 2008 when they opened their doors locally, across from Tunxis Community College, this joint has been jumping. Big burgers and fabulous fries seem to be just what local diners wanted. The burgers are made from 100 percent fresh ground beef, with no fillers or preservatives, and can be ordered with a variety of toppings, including grilled or fresh onions, mushrooms, and peppers, with added cheese, bacon, tomato, lettuce or pickles. Overfilled cups of fries, served Five Guys Style or Cajun are cooked in peanut oil. Sacks of potatoes lined up along the front counter window remind you that you are getting your food fresh, and always made to order. If you are craving something other than a burger, try one of their Kosher style all beef hotdogs, with bacon or cheese, or a veggie or grilled cheese sandwich. While Five Guys has earned best burger ratings and awards across the country and is expanding quickly since it's first location in Virginia back in 1986, it's just nice knowing they are right here in Farmington.
