Five Guys Restaurant Opens to Crowd in Bangor
The menu is simple – burgers and fries – but it drew a big crowd in Bangor Monday.Five Guys Burgers and Fries Restaurant opened its doors at 11 a.m., just in time for lunch.The line of customers stayed out the door for most of the day. This is only the second location in Maine for the popular chain restaurant. The other one is in Portland. Customers, like John Reed, say the food is worth waiting for. “The meat was fresh, the mushrooms and onions was delicious. And the homemade french fries – I can’t make ‘em that good myself!”President Miles Prentice says, “We’ve long awaited this. It’s been fantastic. We had a young man who parked a chair outside – was here at 8 o’clock waiting for the store to open so he could be the first in line. And he’s from Colorado.”The menu also includes hot dogs and a few sandwiches. Five Guys is on Stillwater Avenue, near the Wal-Mart Supercenter, and hired about 40 people to work in the new business. It’s open every day.
