Do you ever crave burgers and fries? I know that I definitely do. Sometimes I am in the mood for a burger with lettuce, tomato, mayo, and ketchup, and other times I just want a burger with lettuce, tomato, and pickles. No matter what you want out of a burger Five Guys Daphne will have something for you. Five Guys has been serving up burgers and fries since 1986 and it's one of my favorite quick and easy places to grab a burger and fries when that craving strikes. 

At Five Guys, the food is so fresh, they don't even have freezers on the premises. From fresh beef to fresh-cut fries, Five Guys takes American's favorite fast-food meal seriously. 

5 Things that make Five Guys Stand Out from the Crowd

1. A simple menu
Have you ever heard the acronym K.I.S.S.? This acronym stands for Keep It Simple Stupid and is something that was preached to me throughout college when I worked at the school newspaper. People love simple, it makes things easy and is probably a big reason Five Guys is so successful. Five Guys menu is incredibly simple, it has burgers and fries (of course), along with hot dogs and a couple other options depending on the restaurant. 

2. Top that burger

At Five Guys there are 15 toppings you can add in any combination you want, for free. Your options are mayo, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, ketchup, mustard, relish, onions, jalapenos, green peppers, bar-b-que sauce, hot sauce, and A1 sauce. By their own count, Five Guys says that there are 250,000 possible ways you can order your burger. Pile on as many toppings as you want, because they're all free.

3. Everything is fresh
Fast food restaurants and even some sit-down restaurants have pre-made food that they simply warm up and serve it to their customers - gross right? That is not the case at all at Five Guys - in fact, it has been said that the owners of the company actually refuse to install freezers and will only allow coolers in the restaurants. 

4. The fries
I don't know about you, but I am a fries kind of girl, and I absolutely love the ones from Five Guys. The Five Guys fries are twice-fried in peanut oil and made just the way I like them. Crispy on the outside and mashed potato soft on the inside. The best part is, they're made to order. The portion of fries is great too, at Five Guys Daphne they take a paper cup that is about 12 ounces and fill it full of fries. They then place that paper cup into a lunch bag-sized paper bag and add another scoop of fries on top of that, and that my friends is a small. 

5. There's only one way to cook the burger
If you're looking for a medium-rare hamburger, you should probably visit a steakhouse and not your local fast-food burger joint. All of Five Guys burgers are cooked well done and taste delicious.
