Five Guys: Burgers and Mega Busters


There's this restaurant chain some of you may know of called Five Guys. If you've never heard of it, Five Guys is essentially a place where you can get some delicious hamburgers and fries. I've moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina recently and just visited their restaurant for the first time. Adorning their walls are various awards and snippets from magazines praising their food, and near the front door is a board where they've hung up various  thank-you notes they've received for being so yummy. I noticed something odd upon my first glance, however. Here's what the board looks like: 


See something familiar? Here, let's have a closer look:



Apparently, Mega Man likes their double cheeseburgers.

Have any of you seen weird, game-related stuff in unexpected places?

I love Five Guys, and that Mega Man thing is awesome.

They're everywhere here in Milwaukee. Their cajun fries are awesome.

There's apparently a Five Guys just outside of Scranton... kinda knew it was there, but never felt the urge to go.


Video game references? None off the top of my head, but there was a Target: Terror arcade machine in the pizzeria I went to yesterday. I was tempted to play it, but opted not to. Next time, maybe.

We have quite a few in Maryland. They're Double Bacon Burgers taste so good with Cherry Coke.

Plenty here in PA, although no game references. There's a local burrito joint called Roburrito's with a Dr. Mario machine, though, so... that's cool.

I saw an 8-bit MegaMan face plastered to someone's window while touring the MIT campus. Though that was probably less surprising.


I actually see a lot of fake Pokémon and Mario stuff where I live in all the different schools, elementary or high school.

They just recently opened a Five Guys here.  I haven't been in there yet but I thought it would be funny if when you walk in it's 5 guys standing behind a counter saying "Welcome" in sync.  Also, I'm dumb.

Their fries are pretty good, but the burgers are crappy.

I love five guys, I guess I was a little suprised when I started getting invites in my school email to watch Starcraft 2 finals for my campus

Don't get their grilled cheese. That sandwich is the ultimate troll punishing you for going there and not wanting beef.

I'm lucky (or unlucky) enough to have a Five Guys and an In-N-Out 10 minutes from where I live. While you get more bang for your buck at Five Guys, I think In-N-Out tastes a lot better.

ANYWAYS, to your question, I was in the middle of the computer lab printing a paper when I needed some help, so I called over someone from the help desk and he was wearing one of those N-7 shirts. As I was leaving I told him this was my favorite computer lab on the citedel and he cracked up.

That's hilarious.

Also, I think In-n-Out is grossly overrated. It tastes like homemade burgers and those are rarely exceptional. Some people say its healthier and while I believe it compared to other chains, its still fried food.
Thoughts?

I had Five Guys for the first time a week ago.  Not impressed.  I suppose if your favorite flavor is salt then you might enjoy their french fries.  The burgers are sort of the typical fast food grease patties, though I'll admit the options for what you can put on the burger is kind of cool. 
Frankly you're better off learning how to grill your own burgers and making something amazing - but that's just stating the obvious.

You win.

After thinking about Five Guys, I can't remember anything video game related being somewhere it shouldn't.

Five Guys have awesome food. Only problem being that the closest one is about a 45 minute drive away for me.

I haven't, but boy I wish I had. A new Five Guys opened 4 days ago in my neck of the woods, so I'll keep an eye out for neat paraphernalia like this.

Oh, man, I would be ALL OVER that machine. I wish more random restaurants had arcade games. :(

I haven't actually tried their burgers yet. I keep getting their hot dog (I've never seen anyone make a hot dog like they do).

That's awesome! Even better that the person got the joke (it would probably have been awkward if they didn't!). 
I saw a European guy on a train while in Japan with an N7 shirt. I was sure to give him a thumbs up and tell him he had a cool shirt before I left.  
 
I really, really want to get that hoody off the BioWare store.
