GMG Readers Poll- What Would You Like To See Fill The Space Vacated By Five Guys?

If those of you who have Facebook or Twitter or Google+ could share this I’d love to see a really large number of votes to get a true picture of what most people want, Thanks. (You can share it by clicking the little icons below the post)

Holy Canoli Batman there were a lot of responses to this.  Some which I think are completely ridiculous due to the space available where Five Guys was located up at Gloucester Crossing.

Anyway here are your options, vote away!

Great Pics From Our Fishing Trip Yesterday

Greg Varsey Writes-
Hi Joey,

It’s Greg Vasey from Five Guys, we met when you came to our opening last
Fall. I took my managers out for a charter fishing trip yesterday morning
(just a little thank-you for their hard work) and I got some great shots of
Gloucester Harbor. I figured I’d send these three along.

Thanks Greg

Five Guys Burger, Fries and Regular Drink total $10.17


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
