Brevard North Carolina Real Estate Blog: Where to eat in Asheville, NC

Where to eat in Asheville, NC

Sometimes, nothing will satisfy like a big juicy hamburger hot off the grill, spilling over with all your favorite toppings. That is certainly the case with my new favorite hamburger place -  Five Guys Burger and Fries.

These days, when you can find a fast food hamburger on every corner, you have to wonder how a place like Five Guys can survive. They survive quite well and with good reason -  The menu is simple and the food is fresh, full of flavor, and every burger is made to order...just for you. Truth is, Five Guys could teach Burger King a thing or two about how to "have it your way". According to the company website, there are 250,000 possible ways to order your burger. There are the basics like lettuce, tomato, mayo, ketchup, and mustard. From there you can add cooked onions, sauteed mushrooms, jalapenos, bbq sauce, A-1 sauce, green peppers, pickles, relish, or all of the above. Have one topping..or have it all, price is the same. Their burgers are made fresh, never frozen, and heck...even their hamburger buns are made fresh at selected bakeries. I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to burgers so I ordered the Little Burger (which isn't so little and weighs in a 1/4 lb) with lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, pickles, and relish. Robert went out on a limb with the Big Burger added BBQ sauce to his. The toppings were plentiful and the burgers hot and juicy and required lots of extra napkins.

When you order, do not...I repeat... do not skip the fries. Especially the cajun fries. A regular spoon awardorder is plenty enough to share. And like the burgers, these fries are made fresh. According to their website, the company went thoroughly nearly 69,000,000 pounds of potatoes in 2009. When we stopped in at the Asheville, NC location this weekend, there was even a sign on the wall that let us know where the potatoes came from that particular day.

While you wait, there is a help yourself pile of roasted in the shell peanuts to munch on.

Five Guys started in Arlington, VA and is now in 625 locations in 40 states and 4 Canadian provinces. But trust me when I tell you that this is not your run of the mill fast food burger and I'm real glad they are in nearby Asheville, NC.

The next time you're looking for places to eat in the Brevard, Hendersonville, or Asheville area of western North Carolina stop in at Five Guys Burger and Fries over on 1838 Hendersonville Rd in Asheville. They're in the Gerber Village shopping center.
