Hidden gems – Five Guys Burgers & Fries

When Fall comes the one thing on my mind is comfort food.  A good old fashioned American cheeseburger and fries.  It fills me up, warms my heart and gives me that extra layer of padding to get through the cold, dark days of Winter ahead.  Believe it or not it’s hard to find a really satisfying burger these days.  I was spoiled by my time on the West Coast downing In & Out burgers.  Still when I discovered Lorton, VA based Five Guys Burgers & Fries here on the East Coast I felt a glimmer of hope.  They have the same comfy, clean dining rooms as I’m used to, fast service and a genuinely tasty burger.  In fact, they were voted Washington, D.C.’s #1 burger for the past 9 years, so they must be doing something right!  If you’re visiting the Capitol with your family this year, stop in for a fresh and affordable meal.
