The People’s Burger: Cajun fries from Five Guys


Five Guys Cajun fries. Not pictured: Greasy brown bag. (Marge Ely/For The Washington Post)

Are there better fries in the Washington area than those at Five Guys? We’re inclined to say yes, although readers overwhelmingly disagreed with us. Perhaps when it comes to cravings, it’s best not to overthink things: There are times when a translucent¬†brown bag of Cajun fries and a double-patty burger with everything on it from Five Guys is the only answer. Go big or go home,¬†right? (Psst, you’ve got Cajun seasoning all over your face.)

Five Guys, more than 50 locations throughout the region.
