When I drive the 50 miles to Crabill's in Urbana, Ohio I just order four and eat all four. I'll sometimes get the cheeseburgers at Crabill's, and I always get onions, mustard and relish. My drink there is always the same: Stewart's rootbeer.
Unfortunately, they have finally decided to make catsup available to the heathens.
ok, NOW I am confused. Not to open recent wounds, but your willingness to eat White Castle burgers flies in the face of comments you posted about Five Guys. You said, "It's my understandnig that they cook all their burgers to well-done, and will not deviate from that." Later you continued: "Five Guys says it will not cook burgers any way other than well done. I won't eat a well done burger. Why, then, should I bother trying one?" you also said, "As to my willingness to say negative things about a hamburger place that refuses to cook a hamburger the only way I'll eat it, you bet I'll be negative." And finally, "I prefer mine raw, but when cooked I like them warm in the middle and a bit more red than pink."
now, I'm pretty sure, that Slyders are hamburgers. I'm also pretty sure they are fully cooked. The patties even have holes in them to ensure they are cooked all the way through. And, I'm pretty sure you cannot order them any other way than the well done way they are made in the store.
So, clearly, if you do, infact, eat burgers that are well done (as is the case with White Castle), then the fact that Five Guys burgers are well done, cannot be the reason you refuse to try them.
I'm going out on a limb here. I could be wrong, but I think the reason you don't like Five Guys is because they were a regular part of the hamburger forum for a long time because they had a review on this site. Meanwhile, your favorite chain, Waffle House, was religated to the FFF as soon as the forum was created. You saw this as some sort of injustice and have not cared for Five Guys since. And neither their food, nor the fact they are chain is what bothers you, but what bothered you, was that you saw Five Guys treated differently than Waffle House, and so, you've decided you hate Five Guys.
Again, I'm really hanging out on a limb with that theory, and fully expect that if I'm wrong, you'll give me a tongue lashing for it (and maybe even get one if I'm right). But, since you do eat well done burgers, I really can't see why, since you've never been to a Five Guys, you would say negative things about Five Guys. You do eat burgers that are not cooked to order. You do eat burgers that are not red in the middle.
help me out, Michael. I want to know why. I'm not trying to be a d!@k.
I do know, that you stated the nearest Five Guys is 150 miles, so, it's not like I think you should drive 150 miles to try them.
PS Love the heathens comment. very funny
