Is Five Guys the Best Burger in Provo?

I don’t know, I’m haven’t decided yet. There are still a lot of burgers to eat. What a dumb title.

I did eat a Five Guys burger though. Pretty good. Was it as good as the Golden Burger from Burger Supreme? That’s really the question I’m here to answer/justify today.

The short of it is that it is not, but I’m biased because the lovely folks at Five Guys messed up my order. I ordered the bacon burger, there was no bacon on my burger. How can you expect to win when you not only forget part of the order, but arguably the second most important part of the burger. (Maybe it’s the bun, I don’t know you decide)

Honestly you can’t, if I’m expecting to have delicious strips of pork meat be included in my burger and they’re not there there is very little chance that my expectations are going to be met.

I’m harping on this bacon thing too much, there are some good things about the Five Guys burger. One of these things is that it’s by far the meatiest burger I’ve had so far this summer and that is what you should want in a burger, all the condiments are nice but you want to taste the meat and you want that meat to taste good. (Can’t wait for someone to take that out of context.) I’m not terribly well educated in the culinary world, but I feel like beef Five Guys uses must be good since it tasted so nice. It’s clearly infallible logic.

Also the burger was way messy. I love that in foods like burgers or really anything you eat with your hands. If I don’t need at least a couple of napkins after eating a burger at least part of me is a little disappointed. Now my Five Guys burger was super messy, because that’s how I ordered it, basically if there is a sauce Five Guys offers for burgers I got it. What can I say I’m a sauce dude.

In the end the Five Guys burger tastes like a burger you’d have at a summer barbecue with friends, and I mean that in a really good way. It’s very simple and straightforward and it knows exactly what it is. It is not as good as the Golden Burger though, so for now Burger Supreme holds onto the arbitrary belt of Jonny’s best burger in the general Provo area. (JBBGPA for short.)

Who can challenge this mighty burger with it’s grilled Texas toast protection?

I pretend like I’ve got things figured out when really I’m making it up as I go. Honest to goodness truth.
