Five Guys

For months I've been seeing Five Guys pop up everywhere.  I looooove a good burger and fries so in my mind I was already there when I found one near my daughter's school in downtown Brooklyn.  I kept telling her I was gonna come and pick her up from school and we would go to Five Guys.  Well I actually didn't get a chance to try Five Guys until her last parent/teacher conference a few weeks ago. 

When we went it was somewhere around eight or nine at night because the parent/teacher conferences lasted so long.  There was a line even at that hour so I figured this must be a pretty good spot.  We both ordered the regular burger and regular fries, which we didn't know came in a "little" size until after we had ordered.  I guess our excitement got the best of us and we didn't completely read the menu.

Both the burger and fries were huge but oh so delicious.  I did notice however that there were peanuts and peanut shells everywhere as they sell them in bulk .  So the chances of me ever returning to Five Guys with my entire family because of this since my son has a tree nut allergies. But the meal was great and the price was right, it was a good time for us.

Johnny Rockets

I don't know who loves an all day shopping trip more, me or my kids.  For them not only do they get to shop for something new,  but they get breakfast, lunch or dinner depending on what time of day it is.  For weeks I had been telling them about a Johnny Rockets opening in  the East River Shopping Plaza, so I finally decided to let them check it out.
