What I Ate: July 30, 2010 (Five Guys Burgers and Fries)

Dinner: We headed over to the nearest Five Guys Burgers and Fries after my friend Braden had tipped us off that they had good burgers there. I had a Bacon Cheeseburger which I thought was actually one of the better burgers in town. The fries were on the good to great side (soft and fluffy with the great one nice and crispy on the outside), but I think I still prefer Mighty Fine's fries and Casino El Camino still makes a superior burger. Of course, the style of burger is different - so comparing against other thin patty burgers, I'd have to say the Five Guys is the best I've had in Austin but, unfortunately, not quite as good as In-N-Out. For me, the bun was a little thick (although wonderfully soft) and presented a little too much sweetness. The beef flavor was not as pronounced as I had hoped (a little more salt on the patty would help) but the choices for toppings makes this a great burger for people who love lots of toppings. We'll be coming back here for sure - it's the closest burger place to where I live that isn't a Whataburger - thank goodness it's pretty good.

Lunch: Liang ban mian one last time. I like this dish, but I think after three days in a row it's going to be a long time before I eat it again.
