Burger boys in NJ-ripped off 5 guys - Tue, 02/12/08 12:50 PM
There is a place in Fairview NJ that has ripped off 5 guys. Check out this site-offthebroiler.wordpress.com/2007/08/05/burger-battle-in-north-jersey. It is amazing how uncreative a guy could be. They could have opened this place and created a whole new look. The food sounded good(if it copied 5 guys it can't be bad)--I don't know if the place closed because they went with legal action from 5 guys-maybe somebody could tell me.--I just that that it was interesting.--so simalar

Come on...haven't you ever been to McDowell's? It's in Queens.



Your first sentence might also read "There WAS a place in Fairview..." The blog post you referred to is about five months old.

Travelin' Man-
Isn't that the place with the golden arcs instead of golden arches?

Ouch. Scathing. Really.

I realize that spelling, spacing, grammar, and punctuation all have no place in your world, but reporting fact is usually considered good form. You mentioned something as news - and it clearly is not. Would it have truly been more difficult to mention this in the past tense rather than the present?

@ davefl and buffetbuster - You are both correct. In fact, IIRC, the owner has two pretty hot daughters!

Thanks, Dad.



@ porkbeaks - I saw that photo when I was looking for the one for McDowell's, but I did not read the article. Thanks!

Personal attacks are verboten during the election season. Please use more maturity in your posts. And, show respect for a great pop culture reference.

This topic of the Five Guys trade dress infringement was covered here on Roadfood in the second half of this thread from last summer:

http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=19910

At the time, some other news outlet reported that the owner of the Burger Boys tried to get a Five Guys franchise, but couldn't. So, the owner ripped off the concept. He should have consulted a lawyer before investing any money.
