Five Guys Burgers & Fries will open tomorrow July 31st 2012 in Brea Downtown next to Subway in the Rite Aid Shopping area. If you haven’t had a 5 Guys Burger, you need to try them out and see if they match up to your other favorites like In-n-Out or The Habit.
Five Guys Burgers & Fries is set to open Tuesday, July 31 in Brea. This will be the second Five Guys to open in Orange County next week. On Monday, July 30, Five Guys is opening a new restaurant in Mission Viejo.
The Mission Viejo restaurant is at the Alicia Towne Plaza at 24391 Alicia Parkway. That opening comes after a long construction period that had many residents wondering if the East Coast burger chain would ever open.
The restaurant is run by franchisee Tom Horton, who operates a handful of Five Guys in Orange County.
The Brea Five Guys is owned by franchisee Phil Ratner, who opened the first Five Guys in Orange County two years ago. The Brea restaurant is at 403 W. Imperial Hwy, one block east of Brea Blvd.
Ratner and Horton own the rights to open dozens of Five Guys restaurants in Orange and Los Angeles counties.
The chain is expanding rapidly under franchisees. Ratner plans to open another Five Guys in Cypress, at Katella and Knott, later this year. Next year, he’ll open a Five Guys in Torrance at Hawthorne and Lomita.
Virginia-based Five Guys chain is often compared to In-N-Out Burger because it has a fanatical following in the East Coast. However, Five Guys is different than In-N-Out — from pricing to menu options. First off, Five Guys offers counter-service only — no drive-throughs for car-eating obsessed Southern California drivers.
Five Guys’ hand-pressed burgers can also be ordered with a wide range of toppings ranging from green peppers to A-1 sauce. The chain also sells hot dogs.
