Five Guys & Marquette's Most Famous Fat Alum

So, I headed over to Bayshore today for my first experience at Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Excellent fries, fried in peanut oil. Nice and crisp - delicious. The burger, which if you order a cheeseburger, apparently means you get a double cheeseburger, was good, not great. The cheese wasn't fully melted. There nothing worse than unmelted cheap American cheese on a burger. It was also very expensive. $10.74 for a double cheeseburger, fries and a Coke is quite dear.

The highlight, though, was spotting MU's very own Rick Majerus at Five Guys. He was sitting one table over with an attractive middle aged woman. I had no clue it was Majerus until he started walking out. I noticed him dig a hand into the box of peanuts they have set up for people in line. I thought it funny that a larger man was getting some more caloric intake before leaving heart attack land, when I noticed the famous Majerus walk. Absolutely unmistakeable. I'm not sure that I have a point, but I thought the contributors to the Buffet would appreciate this apparent "coincidence."

Good luck and good health at SLU Rick, we miss you on the ESPN broadcasts.

Interesting, the fries at the one in Oak Park are always soggy/undercooked.

I agree, it's not bad but a bit on the pricy side of things for what you get.

The peanuts are a plus.

By the way - I'm going to my first Brewers game of the season tomorrow (Tuesday)...will anyone be there?

I'll be there. But working of course.

I will be there, give me a call. I'll be in the club level, but in the poor people club level seats in the outfield without the service.
