Five Guys Burgers & Fries to open Bangor location on Monday

Finally, the dreams of Queen City fast food lovers have come true: the hotly anticipated grand opening of Five Guys Burgers & Fries is set for Monday, March 18. The Bangor location, situated in the same lot as Walmart and the AT&T Wireless Store off Hogan Road at the Bangor Mall, will open its doors at 11 a.m. Monday, and is open until 10 p.m., seven days a week. GQ Magazine called the chain’s specialty the “best $5 burger a man can eat,” though they are also famed for their fries and hot dogs. Those menu items, along with veggie burgers and grilled cheese sandwiches, are the only things the chain offers – which might give you a hint as to just how good those burgers are.

The Bangor location will join the other Maine location, which is in Portland’s Old Port, though another location is planned for a mid-2013 opening at Portland’s Maine Mall. For more information, visit the Five Guys website.
