I finally ate at Five Guys Burgers and Fries on Lake Conroe today. If you wanted to, you can eat there for around $6-7.
Here is one possible scenario:
Hot Dog: $3.19
Regular Fries: $2.89
Total: $6.08 plus tax.
Their fries are pretty generous and can be shared.
Their famous hamburger is $4.69
and their little hamburger is $3.39.
So, overall it is about the same price as a fast food joint, but better quality. I like that you can sit outside by the lake and you can add whatever toppings you would like to your burger for no additional charge (besides cheese and bacon).
They are open from 11am -10pm seven days a week so this is a good later night eatery, too.
I guess it just seems cheap because our local hamburger joints are Fuddruckers and Johnny Rockets, and the hamburgers at Fuddruckers start at $5.09.
ps. They also have all you can peanuts while you wait the seven minutes for your burger to be ready.
I vote this place kid friendly, especially because you can go out and feed the fish right outside on the Marina.
