  • WRAPPED FOR YOUR PROTECTION: Five Guys expanding burger & fries

I tend to avoid chain restaurants where I can, partly because of the nature of my job but also because I like the adventure in finding something new. Wendy’s, Quizno’s, Domino’s — they have nothing for me and I nothing for them. Even when really hungry I just keep on driving. * So on the surface another burger chain doesn’t seem like the sort of place you’d find me.

But Five Guys isn’t just another burger place. It’s a chain, yes, but it’s a chain that’s got its product down to a science. And it’s willing to throw people at the project to make it work.

Been meaning for a while to drop into the location in North Little Rock, but I always found some other place that tugged more at my curiosity. As if my subconscious were tapped, a Five Guys gets built over in my neck of the woods. And by some strange alignment of the planets, I had free time and a couple of bucks in my pocket the other day. I literally drove by on a spur of the moment.

It was almost as if someone were expecting me.
