Goodburger, Five Guys and Shake Shack

I dunno if anybody has asked this but which burger joint is better Five Guys, Goodburger or Shake Shack. I've had the Shake Shack burger it was pretty good. A friend mine lives for Five Guys and I just heard about Goodburger. Just wondering

    1. I've never been to Five Guys, but I'm a big fan of Shake Shack, and I've enjoyed my meals at Goodburger as well. Goodburger definitely has a much thicker patty, so I think it depends what you're going for.

        Once at Five Guys was quite enough for me. I don't understand the allure.

          Same here. Just don't get the Five Guys thing. Shake Shack is much better than goodburger.

            3rd that sentiment.
            I guess the masses think it is top shelf after eating so much McD's and friends.
            Not sure.

              I actually don't mind Five Guys and think it's great that they have malt vinegar to go with fries (kind of rare, especially for a "fast food" joint) but Shake Shack wins, easily.

      2. Thanx for the help I'll try GB soon

        1. Molly's on 3rd ave just below 23rd has a better burger than all three. They make a nice thick and juicy burger.

          1. I like Burger Joint's more than any of the three listed here, but otherwise my vote would be for Shake Shack
