When asking culinary minds around town about their favorite burgers, many answered Five Guys. It's refreshing to know chefs can get down on a quick and easy burger just like the rest of us.

Where do you go for burgers? (Other than your own restaurant)

"I'm not gonna lie, I really enjoy Five Guys burgers. (at least until later that night!)" - Vinson Petrillo, Zero Cafe

"Five Guys is like Bojangles with their biscuits — harder to beat than one might think." - Josh Walker, Xiao Bao Biscuit

"Husk, Edmund's Oast, Five Guys. I won’t say which is my favorite." - Mike Lata, FIG and The Ordinary

"Granted there are lots of great burgers in town. Pound-for-pound, I love Five Guys burgers. It's no In-N-Out, but it's solid." - Andy Henderson, Edmund's Oast

"Locally-owned and operated: Artisan Meat Share (AMS), and if you dig on the swine, Husk is a damn fine burger as well. Q.S.R./National Level — Five Guys." - Nate Whiting, 492

"Artisan Meat Share makes a great burger. Five Guys. Boulevard Diner in Mt. P makes a good pimento bacon burger." -  Joe Dimaio, Stars

"I like Five Guys, 39 Rue De Jean, and Triangle Char Bar, but let's not forget about White Castle." - Bradley Grozis, Wild Olive
