    Five Guys Burgers and Fries- West Des Moines

    Found this link to job openings at a new Five Guys in West Des Moines. Curious if anyone knows where it will be located. Always wanted one in Iowa.

    Says Fall 2011. Maybe a failed start? I've always wanted to try that place.

    Five Guys makes a good burger and they're spreading like wildfire. Good burgers, best fries of any burger joint, and free peanuts.

    I hope this doesn't cannibalize Zombie Burger (pun intended); that place is amazing.

    No more Sonics in the Cedar Rapids area (both closed)...wish we could get a joint like 5 Guys! A complete fantasy world would include an In-N-Out coming to CR...although it might shorten my lifespan! I have read that In-N-Out is thinking of Texas!

    I'm an outlier on this one. Been to 5 Guys more than a handful of times and just not impressed. The bun always falls apart and the meat tastes like a home cooked job. Fries are average. There are far better choices out there.

    Having In-N-Out in Iowa would be awesome but I don't see it happening in a long while.

    I have had 5 guys once while in Chicago and really enjoyed it. Having more options in the Des Moines are will be a great thing.

    For a basis of comparison, what do you consider a good burger place?

    Re: Five Guys Burgers and Fries- West Des Moines

    I would love this! I used to eat 5 guys all the time when I was in DC and would go over to some friends place in Georgetown. Last time I had it was after the Pinstripe somewhere in NJ. And now because of this gosh darn thread I am now craving 5 guys... Thanks, thanks alot....


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”
