Five Guys Burgers and Fries

The Virginia-based franchise Five Guys Burgers and Fries is planning on opening a location in Portland. According to an article in the Portland Daily Sun, the burger shop will be located at 425 Fore Street.

Legendary franchise “Five Guys Burgers And Fries” is planning to open its first Maine location at 425 Fore St., site of the former “Moon” nightclub, and is getting a social media reaction similar to when Trader Joe’s announced the opening of a Marginal Way location.

“It’s kind of the Trader Joe’s of burgers,” said one fan.

  1. Having lived near Five Guys locations before, I can tell you their food is highly overrated and despicably unhealthy. Getting excited about this is not something people should be proud about.

  2. What a fabulous franchise… We have two here in Sarasota, and they have lines to get in, but the lines move very quickly. They have a assembly line and really know how to make burgers as well as keeping the line moving. How can you beat a double hamburger for $4.79 and a big bag of excellent fries for $2.79….
    Good Luck Five Guys in Portland Maine…..

  3. As a California native, I’m apathetic about this news since I’m loyal to In n’ Out. I’m sure they’ll do fine in that particular location, but *shrugs*.

  4. Excuse me, but why would anyone be excited about another place that sells greasy burgers and fries? I don’t get it, it’s almost as difficult to make hamburgers at home as it is to make a bologna sandwich. After having had to sit through a lunch at a Five Guys in Mass with business associates, I can guarantee it will be my first and last.
