There are a few things I just really love in a restaurant, and Five Guys seems to suit my taste in a lot of ways. First of all, you can see the kitchen perfectly and the (awesome) health inspection reports are clearly displayed. This makes me feel so much more comfortable eating the food...when I know exactly how it has been handled. Second, the service is extremely reliable. Yes I know it is only counter service, but I've never once had anyone be rude or impatient with me here...even when I'm constantly changing my mind about the toppings I want on my little cheeseburger. Third, I love that you pick your toppings exactly, that way there are no surprises. Sure, in fancy sit-down restaurants I'll let the chef do his/her magic on my place. When I'm tired as hell or hungover and looking for a greasy fix, I want to know exactly what's going in my food. Fourth, and I know I may be alone on this, I like that you order your burger separate from the fries. I am not a big fries fan, and it seems like every burger has obligatory fries sitting right beside it. I think it's nice to be able to order them separately, or in my case, not usually order them at all.The only reason this place doesn't reach 5 stars in my book is the amount of grease. It may be a little over the top for some people. Although satisfying, I do worry about the massive harm I'm causing to my arteries before taking that first, delicious bite
I have to say I've had a log of burgers in L.A. and Stout tops my list. The burger is cooked perfectly and cooked perfectly every time. I've tried every burger on the menu and have yet to be displeased. They are modestly sized, which is a good thing. You never feel too full. One order of fries is usually enough to feed two. Definitely ask about the items not on the menu, particularly the truffle burger and fried zucchini. The beer selection is pretty good and they recommend different beers to accompany different entrees. Something for everyone here. It can get crowded around dinner time, especially on weekends, so plan accordingly.
Omg I went here one morning around 330am (after the club of course!) And it was sooooo crowded! some people were fighting, this lady at the table next to me was super drunk and she was throwing up in her food and passing out in the restroom... It was gross but memorable at the same time. Hollywood always leaves u with something to talk about! Go juicy burger! Woot! My fav spot to go after the club bcuz the entertainment keeps on going...lol! Grunge but good! Biggest burgers I've ever seen!
Great burgers. Excellent sauces and ingredients. You can have custom burgers - choose your meat and toppings and sauces, or choose from a good selection of the combo they already have. All burgers come in regular size (8oz) or "Mini" (4oz). I had Mini Seoul Burger with Bison/Buffalo cooked medium and it was delicious. I also really enjoyed their garlic fries and onion rings.
Gourmet burgers in Highland Park...creative combinations of toppings, cute names, high quality meats, everything is fresh and made to order. Get the tosos - potato cheese balls of goodness. Oh, and house made pickle platter - several kinds of cucumber pickles, plus carrots, maybe beets, really different. Owner really cares about his restaurant and customers. Delicious!
Located in a very unassuming shopping center this new school burger joint shows they have what it takes to produce high quality gourmet burgers and not charge an arm and a leg. True burger not only serves traditional style burgers they are also putting a spin on things with their unique offerings. Stop by and you won't leave disappointed.
I want to love this place. It is a burger place within walking distance. However, we are always a little disappointed and for the price would usually go elsewhere. The fries are good, the shakes are nice. The burgers are too big (thick) and sometimes under cooked even if we ask for medium well.
I go for their vegetarian jalapeno-bean burger. Last time around it was my close to my birthday when I was at LA live and they were sweet enough to tack-on a couple of free smoothies for me and my friends. This place gets crowded on the weekends (understandably) but the wait is worthwhile :)
This place is amazing!classic style! The food is very delicious! I build my own burger with full french fries combo. I also tried the fish plate and it's really good. A little pricy but it's worth it. I recommend this place. Oh and the owner is a very nice friendly guy.
I love coming here because I can customize what sauces and onions etc. go in my burger. What completes the package are the cajun fries. The service and cleanliness are always good here. If you like peanuts too then they have boxes for free while you wait for your order.
