Five Guys, Burgers & Fries
Just my luck... a new restaurant opens in our neighborhood shopping center (replacing a McD's that closed last year). It is called '5 Guys, Burgers & Fries'. I just found out last night that it is one of those places that have buckets of peanuts & peanut shells all over the floor. And the worst part is that they have outside seating & now thee are peanut shells all over the sidewalk too!
I have calls into the restaurant manager, the Starbucks next door (where I will never go again, just due to proximity) & to the shopping center management. (My husband points out that I should call the health department because the peanuts & shells outdoors will attract rodents, but I haven't done that yet...)
Anyway, I am passing this on because it looks like this restaurant is primarily local but that there are now franchise 'opportunities' so it may spread to other areas.
Bummer, eh? I was so hoping for a nice place to take the kids once in a while instead of McD's.
