Five Guys Burgers & Fries coming to Stamford !!

  • 5

Five Guys Burgers & Fries, will open their newest location at High Ridge near the Merritt as early as next Summer (2012)

Supposedly its going in between the A&P and Global which is going to make traffic in that area even worse than it already is.

  1. I think 'sucks' is a little strong, but in general I agree its not worthy of all the hype. I like the fries there and its definitely better than the only other option in the area which is BK. I'd still like to see In & Out move east.

      There's a branch of Garden Catering (or is that the original?) a little further down in a small strip center at the corner of High Ridge and Vine. It's nothing earth-shattering, but it's better than BK, you can even get a burger there at 8AM if you want, and along with fries and the seasoning they offer, they also have "potato cones", which are like little bits of mashed potato with a thin batter-y coating and are very addictive.

        Big 2nd to that wish for In and Out! Glad to hear I am not the only one who doesn't understand the attraction of 5 guys. The burgers are so average.

          In which case Stamford will eat it up, especially if it's on High Ridge. I mean, why is Crumbs still alive?
