Quick ride-5 Guys Hamburgers

The never ending search for morsels of epicurean delight to satisfy a need for gourmet nirvana leads us to Orange, California, and 5 Guys Hamburgers. 
The ride starts with a phone call from one of our Week Day Riders, John (Cuyo) this morning Wednesday, at about 10 AM with directions and info on meeting Bob (Concho) at a new hamburger place called 5 Guys Hamburgers.  Ever interested in culinary challenges and new vistas in fine dining and epicurean delights as I am, there was no choice but to get ready and head over to Katella Ave and Tustin Rd. in Orange.  On arriving I meet Concho and his American Legion rider friend John, both waiting by the front door to the place as they had not opened as yet.

They open the doors at 11 AM and in we go.  I order a hamburger and a drink for about $6.80 (approx) and we sit down.  There is now a line out the door of people waiting to place an order, and there is no drive thru service.
The three Week Day Riders plus John enjoy a hamburger and drinks plus a load of free peanuts that are provided for diners, John gets fries.  The regular hamburger comes with TWO patties @ $4.49 and you can add lots of different toppings by request.

  Cuyo's one complaint is that they do not cook to order as he wanted it medium rare and every one gets it well done.

40 minutes later and the line is still out the door.
That's it for lunch today.
