Well, I finally made it to BurgerFi.
Since I've never had anything Wagyu or Kobe before, I decided to go with the 100% Wagyu Kobe Beef Dog - $4.97.
Best I could tell, it was a 1/4# skinless dog served on egg style bun.
I ordered it with A-1 Sauce, Grilled Onions and Tomatoes.
Also ordered a Regular Fresh Cut Fries - $2.97 and a Coors Lite Draft - $3.47.
The hot dog had a good unique flavor that set it apart from any other dog I've ever had.
The grilled onions were chopped and spent too much time in the steam table.
They were mushy.
The dog was served just warm, not hot enough.
The fries were very good and done well.
My bride wasn't that hungry but had room for a Hot Fudge Sundae.
She proclaimed it good but not outstanding.
The building is stark modern with mostly steel tables and chairs but nicely done.
The super large overhead fan was a major contributor to the food cooling off quickly.
I'm gonna go back to try the Hamburgers and the Onion Rings.
The rings are humongous and looked very good.
I asked another diner who had them and he said they were outstanding.
The operation runs similar to a Five Guys.
Young cooks hollering out stuff in an assembly line cooking station and loud music playing.
Food-wise, Burgerfi's dog is better but 5 Guys condiments are better. - A Tie.
You get more fries at 5 guys but taste-wise they're similar except 5 Guys are saltier.
Both cooked in Peanut Oil.
Burgerfi's portion is acceptable and price advantage goes to BurgerFi.
While I like the fries at both places - Slight edge to BurgerFi.
BurgerFi serves Beer & Wine. 5 Guys doesn't. - DEFINITE advantage to B-fi!
Much more variety in Burgerfi's Menu - Advantage B-fi.
Burgerfi's prices are lower. - Advantage B-fi!
So, at this point, without trying the B-fi burgers and O Rings yet, I have to give the Overall Advantage to BurgerFi.
They are directly across the street from each other on Val Vista Dr. between US 60 and Baseline Dr.! http://www.burgerfi.com/
