Five Guys George Street
The cult-favourite US burger chain has opened its first Sydney CBD store.
June 06, 2022
Burger fiends of Sydney scored a new go-to joint back in 2021, when US-born brand Five Guys opened its first Australian store in Penrith. But if you're keen on giving the chain's combination of meat and buns a try in the inner city, get ready to add a trip to George Street to your menu — with Five Guys launching its first Sydney CBD outpost, and second Aussie spot overall, on Monday, June 6.
Back in March, the brand revealed that it'd be opening at 383 George Street sometime midyear, if this news sounds familiar. Now, however, that has finally happened. Setting up shop within Spiden House, the new store spans just under 323 square metres, seats 85 burger lovers, and blends the building's heritage-listed features with Five Guys' red-and-white colour scheme.
And, it slings burgs, fries, hotdogs, sandwiches and shakes — aka Five Guys' usual range — obviously. If you're wondering why the brand has built up such a following, the fact that its made-to-order burgers skew in the classic direction is one good reason. These burgs come with two hand-formed patties on toasted buns, with your choice of free toppings (including pickles, grilled mushrooms and jalapeños). Five Guys also does bacon cheeseburgers that add two strips of bacon and two slices of Kraft American cheese as well.
Prefer hotdogs, sandwiches (in veggie, cheese or BLT varieties), hand-cut fries (with or without Cajun spices) and vanilla milkshakes? They're all on the menu as well. Don't go thinking that the latter are boring, though — you can add bacon, bananas, peanut butter, salted caramel and even Oreo pieces to your design-your-own beverage.
As anyone with allergies should note, though, Five Guys only cooks its fries in peanut oil.
