Australia's first Five Guys location is in Penrith, next door to the Panthers Leagues Club. If you’re not yet acquainted with this U.S-based burger chain, Five Guys is known for two things: burgers and fries. But these burgers are unlike anything you’ll find at a typical fast-food joint. Five Guys operate on a “no freezer” promise—their brioche buns are freshly grilled, the ground beef patties are shaped by hand and their hand-cut chips are fried on demand, skin-on and straight to your table.
On the menu are all the Five Guys icons. The customisable hamburgers, cheeseburger, bacon burger, and bacon cheeseburger; the boardwalk-style fries hand-cut daily, all-beef hot dogs with the added option of melted American-style cheese; and creamy, customisable shakes that you can jazz up with mix-ins like crispy bacon, real bananas, fresh strawberries, or cold-brewed coffee made daily in-store.
For those who love a bit of DIY, Five Guys offers a massive 15 different toppings that’ll help take your burger to the next level. We’re talking everything from grilled mushrooms, green peppers and pickles, to all your favourite condiments and sauces. The list goes on and on. Stick with the classic or max out and add all 15. Using some pretty tricky maths (something called combinatorics) a big-time Five Guys fan figured that this makes over 250,000 ways to customise your burger. All the more reason to visit again and again and again.
