New Five Guys Powers Through First Real Lunch Service
Clearly Five Guys has learned a few lessons since their debacle of a grand opening on 55th btw. 5+6th a few years ago. Their newest location (on 3rd btw. 43+44th) had their first lunch rush today and passed with flying colors. Despite a line that stretched all the way back to the door for almost 2 hours, the wait times capped at about 25 minutes, with only about a 7 minute wait time between the time you ordered, and the time you got your food.
The unique set up certainly helped, and you get to watch your burger being assembled while you wait (the well oiled machine is quite a site to behold.) It’s refreshing to see a place that clearly thought about how they were going to handle the crush of Midtown Lunchers on opening day… and it’s a good thing because I doubt the line is going to die down anytime soon.
