First Friday Lunch Review: Five Guys Burgers & Fries

July 12, 2010 by

Even though it took place on the second Friday of this month, last Friday’s lunch was the start of a new tradition at the Silicon Prairie News office in Omaha: First Friday Lunch.

Joining up with the BrightMix team (Kevin Zink, Tony Noecker, and summer intern Rick Knudtson), the Omaha Silicon Prairie News team (Dusty Davidson, Jeff Slobotski, summer intern Andrea Ciurej and myself), grabbed a classic American lunch at Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

And now for the purpose of this post, our reviews (out of four stars):

Tony: 3 – The burgers are fantastic, but the fries need work.

Kevin: 4 – I accidentally tried to drink my fries and I was pleasantly surprised.

Jeff: 3 – Speechless, but the grease leaves something to be desired.

Dusty: 4 – The second patty put it over the top.

Andrea: 4 – Five star American lunch for Five Guys. Peanuts are a bonus.

Rick: 4 – Burger was great but what put it over the top was the Vault.

Danny (me): 4 – The grilled cheese was a beef killer.

Overall: 3.7/4

Tune in to this blog, Little Office on the Prairie, each month for more First Friday Lunch reviews. And if you have a Five Guys’ review or your own or a suggestion for our next outing, please leave it in a comment below.

Cleaning up after a delicious lunch (in reference to Kevin’s review, notice the fries are served in cups).
