Five Guys Burgers and Fries (UK)

Recently Five Guys was voted, in the UK, as the countries best fast food restaurant. To be honest, I cannot say that I have heard of them. So I thought to myself – “Hmmmm, I’ll be the judge of that” seeing as how I am a fat lardy and therefore partial to a patty or two.

I was working at Birmingham New Street and, lo and behold there is one there so I’ll have one as an end of week treat. Trouble was I didn’t see out the week in Brum. Nevermind on the way back from Oop North I called in at one of the Leeds outlets.

The décor, menus, and  signage are all simple. No faff. Just red for the words and simple wood for the tables and chairs. You order at the till and wait for your number to be called to collect the food. Drinks were at a Coke fountain that had 100+ flavours. There were nine flavours of Diet Coke alone. I had Vanilla.

Food ready – number called – bag collected – seat taken.

I ordered a Bacon Cheeseburger, simple with just onions and pickle. (There are many other toppings to choose from if you prefer something else).

Five Guys Style fries, which were ‘skin on’ and salty. They were from Lincolnshire as the signs proclaimed – always a bonus.

The burger consisted of two succulent, tasty, cooked to perfection, patties ( dunno what weight they were as it isn’t mentioned, but my guess would be quarter pounders), Gooey cheese, well-done bacon, pickle, onion, on an unremarkable, save for it being slightly sweet, sesame seed bun. So far so normal.

I love a burger. McDonald’s, Burger King, Ed’s, TGI Friday, you name it. I can categorically state here and now that… FIVE GUYS – BEST BURGER EVER

They do Hot Dogs as well so will have to try them out also. The only downside, other than location, is the price. It’s quite steep as the meal was over £16.

BBQ Pulled Pork

Rebels Smokehouse in the fair city of Beverley – just off the A164 at the end of Wilbert Lane – is a fantastic place to get you some belly love.

All their food is great. They are an American style BBQ pit with loads of burgers and chicken and whatnot. My personal favourite is the Monster Pulled Pork Platter. You get a generous portion of porcine goodness (and I quote “Smoked in our wood burning stove for over 14 hours, hand pulled to remove fat and smothered in our famous smokey barbecue sauce”) chips, and a loverly side of  Mr. Taggart’s favourite, BBQ Beans, topped with more pulled pork.

It’s always tasty and succulent and fresh and loverly and, and and – Oh dear, I am now salivating and need to go to Beverly.

They also do a mahoosive hot dogs smothered in pulled pork. As well as…

GUACAMOLE BURGER
A very messy Double Bacon Cheeseburger smothered in lashing of Salsa, Guacamole, Sour Cream and Cheese sauce held together with a Crackling jalapeño skewer.

ALABAMA SLAMMER CALZONE
A calzone packed full of our famous 16h Low n’ Slow BBQ Pulled Pork accompanied by our gooey Mac n cheese. This is heaven in a calzone!

RIBS, they do ribs. Glorious meaty ribs.

‪‎MeetMeatEat‬ for 4. Whole Smoked chicken, whole rack of BBQ smoked Ribs, Pulled Pork, Corn dogs, Sliders, and wings with a choice of 8 sides.
Also available for 2 with half of the above.

BIGFOOT Burrito!!! Just over a foot of Burrito stuffed with our famous 16h Low ‘n slow smoked Pulled pork.

I know this is like an advert for Rebels, but, by sweet baby jebus and the orphans, if you like meaty meals get yourself to Rebels.

Or there is…

Guinness Dublin Porter

I am, and have been for quite some time, a Guinness Stout drinker which is now brewed exclusively in Dublin, Ireland.

I have and will drink most alcoholic beverages. I’m currently enjoying the clean crisp taste of Grolsch Lager. Most Lagers are brewed in the UK under licence. Therefore a french beer, such as Kronenberg, is actually brewed here. Same with the likes of Fosters, Grolsch, or Budweiser. This is not such a bad thing as they use the imported hops and barley of the original.

Unfortunately, Guinness is best enjoyed from draft. Some of the versions in cans are too fizzy and weak tasting. There is even a version you need a vibrating plate to get it to act like draft.

Luckily there is a porter that the good folks at Guinness brew which, when bottled is excellent. Yes it’s a little fizzy, but that’s the way a porter should be. Sweeter than regular Stout, less bitter, less astringent, some say it’s got a chocolaty taste?

I’m a big fan of this beverage. Many, many bottles have been consumed and I would attest to loving the Porter style beer.

Will have to try their West Indies Porter
