I like ghetto food. I like "man" food. I like Ma 'n Pop restaurants with the Blue Plate Special food. I like sandwich food. I like spicy, flavorful, hearty food.
Wanna know what I don't like? Fancy food. Okay, well I don't HATE it, but I don't crave it like some people. Who wants to go to a "fancy" restaurant and pay RIDICULUS prices to only get a fluffy piece of ARTISTIC CRAP on their plate? COME ON! I came to eat because I am HUNGRY and you serve me this mess?
Megan likes "fancy" food, but I have also helped to introduce her a wider range of GHETTO food and she is slowly embracing it, embracing it so much that, not too long ago, SHE took me HERE!
WELCOME TO FIVE GUYS BURGERS AND FRIES! I first heard about this through our wedding photographer (and family we blog stalk . . .) the Sansoms. This is the MAN'S place to eat. You walk in and immediately to your right is a garbage with peanuts on top. I wish I had this in my apartment. It tells me, "WELCOME."
The menu is simple, burgers and fries. And they ain't no fluffy burgers either; you need to come hungry. Also, nothing is said by the employees in anything less than a minor shout. Your food is served in paper bags and wrapped in foil. All the makings of a great food experience.
(For those of you who know Carmacks KNOW my longing.) It had the bar stools, small family-run environment, and great food that I needed. The steak fries and fry sauce were AMAZING!
If you are looking for a great night out with good company, come on down to Provo and we will hit up Sammy's. Trust me, we know how to have a good time.
