Five Guys Burgers and Fries, which started out in Arlington, Va. more than 20 years ago, is opening another restaurant in Houston today.
The latest is at 1150 Fry Road, another one of 50 stores its parent company, TCH Restaurant Group, has planned for Houston. This one will be open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day.
As we told you back last January, there is a definite etiquette to burger building in the Five Bros. chain.
You walk in and order your food. There are only eight menu items: hamburger, hotdog (always Hebrew National), grilled cheese, veggie sandwich, French Fries in regular size and large size (which feeds four) in regular or Cajun-spiced versions and a beverage. All the burgers are cooked well-done.
You can get the burger in "regular," which is two 3.3-ounce patties ($4.69) or "little" ($2.99), which is one patty. Then you select one or all of the 17 toppings (pickles, onions, mushrooms, etc.).
