When Five Guys opened in Ithaca, it was as if Jean Georges had decided to open up shop in Ithaca or Bobby Flay had decided to bestow his food on us. Hailing from Boston and thus unaware of the new chain, I decided to stop by to check it out. Upon seeing the line, I left and returned a few days later. And repeated the same steps until finally, one Monday night at about 9 p.m., the line seemed reasonable. That was, until I ordered my food, and proceeded to wait about 25 minutes for it to be ready. When my number finally was called, I was pleasantly surprised that the burger was good and the fries were better. However, the burger was just that — good.
