So, I know my family has been waiting for months for Five Guys to finally open in the Town Center. On January 10, they did. The fast-casual restaurant, known for its juicy burgers and fresh-cut fries, is a bit more cheerful in this location, than say in its White Plains sister, though the offerings are all the same.
We stopped in yesterday with the kids and you could barely get a table! The burgers and fries were as terrific as ever, and the staff could not have been more welcoming. They have someone to greet you at the door and say a special good-bye as you leave. I love it. But in my opinion, there are two small downsides to Five Guys: 1.) you have to wait on two lines. As if we even had time to wait on one, right? You head to the register, where you order and pay. Then you wait on a whole other line for food. In the Cortlandt Manor location, expect a lot of congestion — people are crazy about this place — so the waits can be long. Downside Number Two: No shakes. Call me crazy, but when I want a burger, I often want a shake to go with it. No such luck here.
But as for the burgers, well, they’re hard to beat!

And I loved these new agey soda machines…
Isn’t it cool?
