Five Guys is located in the Mount Pleasant Towne Center on Highway 17. Its location is a bit off the beaten path. If you blink, you’ll miss it, but hopefully you won’t.
Décor-wise, the restaurant isn’t very special. It’s a red and white theme, with tiled walls and hardwood floors. Framed articles line the walls and mounds of bags of potatoes steer you toward the cash register.
On our recent visit we ordered two Little Cheeseburgers (we’ve had the bacon as an add on before, you should pass on it…), fries, and a soda to split. Total dinner tab, $13.76. But wait there’s more. To pass the time you can munch on free fresh shelled peanuts – What’s not to love?
Your meal is picked up by the number on your receipt. You can then go to the condiment bar to get ketchup, vinegar, etc. Easy to use, and like the rest of the restaurant – right down to the restrooms, spotlessly clean. Everything about Five Guys is simple. Maybe that’s the magic.
The management is to be commended on their staff. It’s very diverse and the team is also very friendly. Most importantly, they all seemed to be very happy to be there. They made us feel very welcomed - all this for $13.76. It was a 5 napkin dinner.
Phil Mickelson may have recently converted to a vegetarian, but it’s not for lack of a great burger. Maybe he can have the veggie sandwich??
