Can’t get a dinner reservation for Valentine’s Day? Then grab your lucky date by the hand and run, don’t walk, to Five Guys Burgers at 5550 Wilshire. Sources tell I Love Los Angeles, But… that the burger joint will have its long-awaited grand opening on February 14.
(By “sources,” I mean I noticed a sign in the window while I was walking by today).
This will be the second Los Angeles location for the fast-growing chain, in addition to one in Culver City. Five Guys has a following on the East Coast like In-and-Out has here, so it will be interesting to see what happens as Five Guys invades its turf.
While In-and-Out basks in its simplicity, apparently Five Guys does not — its website touts that “there are over 250,000 possible ways to order a burger at Five Guys.” No word if “animal style” is one of them.
In any case, I’m sure the lines will be out the door next Tuesday to see what all the fuss is about.
