Burgers and Fries are possibly the simplest recipe for success in the fast food industry. However, after my third visit to the Delafield Five Guys Burgers and Fries I am now convinced that the Five Guys in Delafield may have found a way to screw up a simple concept. How hard can it be to sweep the floor, wipe the tables, or clean the bathroom before a lunch rush? Why is it that every time I visit this location as I pass through town to visit friends and relatives that I walk into what only can be described as a Mess Hall?
Listen, I understand that its hard to train and motivate teenagers in the fast food business but their job is to cook and clean. On every occassion there seems to be a shift manager on duty working faster than everyone around them. However, there is never any sign of “management” going on. The food always arrives overdue and sloppier than your average Five Guys. Even after sitting at the table for 20 minutes no employee has ever been seen in the dining area picking up trash or sweeping the floors.
If you ask me if Five Guys Burgers and Fries is worth your time I would say yes only if you have low standards, your hungover, and or your already over your limit.
