    They just opened near me in Edinburgh, Scotland. We only have McDonalds and Burger King so I was really happy with my burger. The price seemed alot though, for a little burger it was £5.50/$8.30.

    I had the kids with me and felt pressured when selecting my condiments, so I just went for the standard ketchup, mustard, onions, and pickles. Does anyone have a recomendation for the next time I go?

    My wife got fries but I thought they sucked.

    Howard related because he likes a thick cheesy piece of meat in his mouth.

    five guys is fucking bomb if ur lookin for a burger fix
    i usually get standard topping lettuce tomato onion pickles
    carmalied onions and hot sauce and bbq sauce are good 2
    the fries can be great fresh hot and crispy but they will get soggy rl fast sitting in that brown bag

    If Shake Shack ever comes your way give it a shot. Awesome burgers with high quality meat. They started with one joint in Manhattan and have expanded, even overseas. Great shakes too.

    Do they have all the free peanuts you can eat in Five Guys Scotland too?

    They had a big bag of peanuts on top of a bunch of bags of potatos, but I never knew they were free. Is the $8.30 price for a little burger the norm in the states?

    The 5 Guys here is OK but the one in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago is always awesome. Seems like they have more variation from site to site than other burger places.

    there is also a standard group of toppings. something like "all dressed". I tried that once.. didn't like it.
    I only went there a few times. My coworker would drive there just to get the spicy fries.

    I don't mind paying extra as the quality of the pattie was night and day, compared to McDonalds. I always have water in my car so i never get drinks or fries for myself.

    That's an even worse idea for a thread.

    Don't they have shooting ranges, heroin or prostitutes in Scotland?
