    Not seen that but generally from what I've read about Five Guys I don't think I'm going to bother going anytime soon

    I've just been to Five Guys in Covent Garden , it was busy had to wait about 20 mins to get burger but they do take your order then you collect the burger when its ready meaning you have time to go and enjoy the free refills at the coke freestyle machine which is self service 100+ ( I had vanilla and cherry coke together followed by sprite raspberry and peach) combo of flavours and free monkey nuts to snack on. The idea is you pay for your basic burger ie , cheese, bacon or plain for a price. The toppings are then included with price regardless of how many you have think as about 20 options including the sauces. The burger was good and the fries are nice but the price was bit off putting but it is London. 8.50 for double bacon cheese burger, 5 for a large fries but there was enough to share between two of us compared with the states the burgers and portions seem smaller but might just be my imagination . I would go there again and my tip would be to make use of the downstairs seating area as it was empty while everyone was looking or waiting for seats upstairs.

    The medium fries portion at Five Guys is absolutely huge; I didn't expect so many.

    Was an OK burger (also had a bacon cheeseburger when I went, no wait at all as I got in before the post-work stress) but I wouldn't spend 14 odd it was there again when there's better burgers in London ie Patty and Bun. The drinks machine was cool.

    Why not? They can't identify you to the police, can they?

    Sounds good Although there bashing of The Old Trueman Brewery is a bit bad I've seen quite a lot of non-red smothered chicken... nom nom to my Turner and Roast Pulled Pork lunch I've just had
