On A Lighter Side

Ever since we moved from California, hubby and I haven't eaten at hamburger places very often-mainly because we couldn't find any that compared to In-N-Out and also because I wanted us to live a healthier lifestyle. On Sunday evening we met our sil at a furniture store to help him pick up some new pieces for their home. Our oldest grandson was there eating french fries and they smelled so good so yesterday when hubby and I were out running errands we had that taste for a hamburger and fries. We had heard about a fairly new restaurant in a nearby town and decided to give it a try. The name of this hamburger place is Five Guys Burgers and Fries; apparently they are all over the east coast and have a great reputation. It was very similar in appearance to In-N-Out but subtle differences in the food. I can honestly say this is the best burger place we've found in northern Colorado and meets our need for quality hamburgers. They even have peanuts for the customers to eat while you're waiting. We won't be going there on a regular basis, for health reasons, but it is nice to know when we are in the mood we have a great place to go.

Have a fun day!


  1. We have one near us here and I have yet to be to it! Everyone I know says they're the best. I will definitely try them soon!!! Enjoy your day!

  3. Enjoyed looking at your blog. Thanks for visiting mine today. Always nice to meet new bloggers.
    We have a 5 guy place a mile from us. They are popular with many people.
    Aren't those pinecones great.
    Our daughter lives in CA now with her family. They are planting a church there in Riverside.
    Have a great day!

  4. ooh we have one near us and it is super yummy! i've never had a burger there, i usually get the hotdog. and the fries with vinegar. ooh now i'm hungry!

  5. My fave place to go for a burger is Chiles! Their Smoky Bacon Big Mouth Burger is wonderful!! Other than that...we make our own and of course they're REALLY the best!!

    Glad you found a place you love!! Hamburgers and fries are just so All American!!

    Love you!

  6. I knew that is what you were going to say
    hubby loves it
    I have sworn of french fries
    so it is right next to Chipoltes
    so I get some chips and guacamole
    and meet him at the burger joint (o:

  7. Hello,
    I like that snowman on your sidebar.

    I'm happy I stopped by because this chain has opened fairly recently here and I've yet to try it. Thanks for the recommendation.
    It isn't a fast food place, and that is what I like. I like the burgers at Logan's Roadhouse but don't eat there more than once a year.

  8. There is nothing like a GREAT burger and fries when you are in "that" mood. Glad you found a tasty place. In and Out is hard to beat. I TRY and avoid it, haha, but my grandkids beg for it and it is the first place Melody heads when she is home visiting, haha Have a great day.

  9. I love In-N-Out too! We only go there once in awhile. I'm glad you found a good burger place...it's fun to have them when you are in the mood for them.

  10. Hi New Friend,

    I wanted to stop by and say hello to you dear blogging friend and thank you for leaving your beautiful comment on my site. Yes, I do love to pray and I love our Lord so very much. Even though I've just met you, I can tell that you have such a very kind and caring heart. I can surely feel that...and I love your place here. I've become a follower of yours tonight as well.

    I look forward to coming here and visiting you more often.

    Love & Blessings,

  11. Oh shoot, now I want a hamburger and fries, but ummmm Colorado is a bit far to go...lol. I do love a good hamburger. We have several places in a nearby town that has the old fashion "homemade" tasting burgers. YUM!

  12. Hi Noreen,
    I have never heard of either of those places. We rarely eat burgers either unless we make them at home
    with lean ground beef. We do get a whopper every once in awhile, cause it is grilled and has less fat.
    And they are yummy especially since we rarely do it, we always skip the fries anymore tho! We eat kettle chips fried in sunflower oil instead. At least we think they are healthier!! lol
    It is always nice to find a new
    place to dine with new choices.
    We get very excited about that,
    cause with Jim's heart problems there are only so many things on
    the menu that we can choose from,
    so every time we find a new place it is like WhoooooooHooooooooo!!
    You have a good day hon,
    Blessings, Nellie
    Oh yea, make sure you come by tonight got a surprise for you!!
