Fatburger Gives Way to Five Guys


Times critic Sam Sifton has weighed in on Five Guys and declared it pretty great. Were not sure why that had to happen (couldnt he just have doodled a note and tacked it to the bulletin board like the rest of us?), but were linking to it anyway, because the chain doesnt get nearly enough food-blogger love amid all the fetishizing of LaFrieda burgers and severely overwrought and overpriced glamburgers. And heres a bit of news: The Fatburger at 286 Washington Street in Jersey City has closed, and a sign in the window reveals it will be taken over by you guessed it Five Guys. Cali expats, your closest Fatburger is now the one in Massapequa Park, Long Island.
