Five Guys Gloucester Burgers $9.23 Double Cheeseburger and Cajun Fries

I’d been to Five Guys in Naples a couple of times but never paid attention to the price as we were on vacation and when we’re on vacation I tend not to obsess over saving money.

Here is the burger I got yesterday morning at 11:00AM  I was the 21st ticket of the day.  The first video will be posted at 8:00AM

The total for a two patty bacon cheeseburger with bbq sauce and sauteed onions along with an order of cajun fries came to $9.23- note that I didn’t get a drink.
Now here’s the thing, the burger was very good.  Way better than McDonalds or Wendy’s or Burger King, but it was also considerably more money.  It took about 7-8 minutes to get the complete order.
I think there are better burger options in town- be it Passports, Alchemy, Dog Bar, Elliots, Topside Grille,  and some people would throw Halibut Point in there.  You can get a better burger with fries at any of these other joints for about the same if not slightly less money.   That’s not a slight to the Five Guys Burger because they are tasty and prepared well.  It’s just when you factor in the pricing there are better burger values for the quality you get.  That’s  a testament to the strong restaurant offerings in Gloucester.  I’m sure there are other restaurants in Gloucester that have burgers equally as good.  If any Gloucester restaurateur that I didn’t mention would like to send in a picture of one of their burgers, I’d be happy to post it for comparison’s sake.

The bottom line is that you should try it for yourself though because it is a different kind of experience and the burgers are very very good.  I rate them better than Fudruckers by a mile actually but I’ve never been a Fudruckers Fan.  If the pricing was just a bit less I’d probably make it a regular stop but I have a hard time justifying over $10 for a fast food lunch.  I’d prefer to get any number of specials around town for under $10 for a restaurant style meal.
For comparisons sake here is a Passports Bacon Blue Burger with sauteed onions and BBQ Sauce and Hand Cut Fries for $8.95

  • My husband and I have had 5 guys burgers and fries three days in a row now ! They are so good and tasty. I don’t care about the price, but more about having quality meat and a great tasting burger. Reminds me of In N’ Out Burgers on the west coast, who run a close match to 5 guys.

  • I think Halibut Point burgers are the best in town. However, everyone should give Five Guys a chance as it has taken soooo long to get Gloucester Crossing up and running, and every business in there deserves a chance. I hope it lasts for us…….
