Cititour Review:
It's not every day that a burger gets the Presidential treatment.   But for Five Guys it's a sign that you've made it to the top when the White House press corp arrives.   In fact, after President Obama visited Five Guys in D-C, sales reportedly doubled for the so-called "Obama Burger," a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, mustard and jalapenos. 

But even before the President's visit, Brooklynites were well aware of the greatness of Five Guys burgers.   Maybe because they're cooked up fresh.  Maybe because the meat is juicy despite being served well done.  And maybe because it doesn't taste like fast food, it just tastes good.    Then there are the fries stacked high.  They're cooked in pure peanut oil and always seem to arrive nice and crunchy.   Different types of potatoes are served daily depending upon the farm that supplies them.  But goodness doesn't come cheap.  A cheeseburger, fries and soda can run upwards of 12 dollars.  

Five Guys also seems to have what other fast-food joints lack, personality.  From its staff to the customers that frequent it.  Take the biker guys and gals who arrived during our most recent visit with tattoos everywhere.  They didn't seem like the type of crew that would hang with a President, but with burgers this good, maybe even the President wouldn't be able to resist!
