5 Guys Fries

Has 5 Guys shrunk the portion of French Fries? Went yesterday and was served about half of what I used to get. Granted it's been about 3 months since I was there last, but this seems to be a significant portion reduction. When I asked about it I was told that this was a single portion. Not in my experience, it was about 2/3 of a portion at best. Just curious if I've missed iinfo relating to a decrease in portion.

    Maybe they were just extra greasy and limp that day and sunk down into the cup.

      Me and two friends could split an order of fries there until some point last year when the size they would dump in the bag seemed to get smaller.

        In December, three of us (and not a dieter in the group) split a single small order of fries and had a few left over.

        Maybe you just got there on a stingy day?

          It's about time. Their "small" order of fries is so huge, it takes at least two people to eat them, and the only time I go to 5G, I'm by myself. Sometimes when I could go to 5G, I eat elsewhere because I hate throwing food away.

          I hope you're right, and that this reduction in size is chainwide.

            The first time I went to 5 Guys, I made the mistake of ordering a large fry.

            I've only been there a couple of times, but it seems the spillage at the bottom of the bag is about enough for me.
