As of 11:30am Monday, Beavercreek residents can now stand in line to enjoy these much talked about burgers. The concept is kept very simple, with a menu that offers burgers, kosher hot dogs and fries. It’s a quick serve kind of place, you enter the line, order your food, get your own beverage and they call your number when your order is ready.
Five Guys offers several options for burgers. There’s the “regular” burger, which consists of two beef patties, and a “little” burger that has only one patty. Then you choose your toppings: mayo, relish, onion, lettuce, pickle, tomato, green pepper, jalapeno, grilled onion and grilled mushrooms. Sauces include BBQ, hot sauce and A-1. You can add American cheese or bacon to your burger for a slight upcharge.
As for the hot dogs, you can get yours with cheese and or bacon. They also offer a grilled cheese and a vegetable sandwich, but quite frankly, I’ve never tried those.
Fries, which are cooked in peanut oil are available in two sizes. And there you have the entire offerings of Five Guys. Keep it simple, do it right and voila success! They guys started out with one store in Virginina in 1986 and now have over 450 locations in 30 states. Chris Mastin, the Dayton-area franchisee, opened the first Miami Valley location on St Rt 725, next to Rue Dumaine, earlier this year. They’ll add a third location near UD soon.
Opps, I may have forgotten the most fun part- FREE peanuts to eat and throw the shells on the floor while you’re waiting for your order!
