    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?
