Breaking food news: Five Guys opening this Saturday

Just got off the phone with Ted Miller, franchise owner of the new Five Guys Burgers and Fries at the corner of Minnesota Avenue and 10th Street, and he says, barring any unforeseen craziness, they will open this Saturday at 11 a.m.

They’ve also rented out the parking lot of the now-closed Asia Sushi Bar and Chinese Bistro across the street for the next two months, anticipating the need for overflow parking.

I get asked about four times a day when this place is going to open, so I know there is high interest in their launch. And now we know!

Enjoy your burgers and paper bags of fries!
