Everyone I have ever known (excluding a few vegetarians) loves a good, old-fashioned cheeseburger. The cheeseburger is the perfect meal in my opinion, but there is little-to-no room for error when it comes to this staple of millions of Americans’ diets.

In recent years, Five Guys Burger and Fries has risen above the rest when it comes to their take on the cheeseburger. In fact, in 2012, a poll of 7,600 fast-food consumers had Five Guys ranked No. 1 in food quality and taste, service, cleanliness, and atmosphere. No one can dispute the quality of their product, but the one thing that many consumers are reluctant about is the price.

Five Guys’ regular cheeseburger contains two slices of Kraft American cheese melted between two freshly grilled patties on a soft, toasted bun. In addition to this, customers may add as many of the fifteen toppings that Five Guys offers to their burger This will run you just under $9 with tax factored in. Minimum wage workers would have to work at least two hours just to have a meal at Five Guys, so it is evident why many people have reservations about forking over their cash to purchase this premium product between two buns.

Let us get back to the question at hand: “Is it worth it?” In my opinion, yes, however, that may not be true for an average consumer. I would say it all comes down to the person. If you are the type of person that just thinks that “food is food,” and that eating is solely for sustenance, I would not recommend Five Guys for you.  If you are willing to spend a little more for a superior, and far more enjoyable meal, Five Guys is the place where you should be ordering your burgers from now on.
