For those that love American fast food, this is the news you have been waiting for. Five Guys is coming to Australia for the first time and opening their first store in Penrith NSW. There doesn’t seem to be an official date yet when they will open but it does say they will open mid-2021 which could be any day now! We are so excited.
Update: They will be opening 20 September 2021!
For those that have never heard of Five Guys, they have been around since 1986 and started as a small family business. They have had huge success since and have opened over 1,500 locations around the world. They are well known for their burgers, hotdogs, fries and milkshakes and they claim to not own any freezers… which we assume means everything is made fresh.
You will be able to find the new Five Guys once it opens in Penrith NSW in the Penrith Panthers Precinct (which also already includes Krispy Kreme – what a combo!) and next door to McDonalds and KFC.
We had a look into their American reviews and people seem to love that their menu is customisable on how you like your food and you can get unlimited add-ons (hopefully this continues in their Australian store).
What will be on the menu?
Five Guys have not yet released what will be on their Australian menu, but if their American one is anything to go off, here are some of the burgers we can expect:
- Bacon Burger
- Bacon Cheeseburger
- Little Hamburger
- Little Cheeseburger
- Little Bacon Burger
- Little Bacon Cheeseburger
Then it seems you can add whatever you want to your burger including simple things like lettuce and tomato or all the way up to peppers and grilled mushrooms.
We are really looking forward to visiting once they open! Let us know if you have tried Five Guys before in another country?
