After much anticipation, the new Five Guys Burgers and Fries located at the corner of Ralston Avenue and El Camino Real will open to the public on Wednesday, Feb. 6.
The national chain, which has its origins in Virginia, is occupying 2,500 square feet of space in the Belmont Village Center, and will use the outdoor patio as well as interior seating.
The Los Angeles Times recently rated Five Guys Burgers and Fries as one of the nation's top better burger brands.
According to , the addition of Five Guys represents solid economic development efforts made by the city’s team to work cooperatively with the property owner/broker in gauging interest in and facilitating the location of this business to Belmont.
Five Guys doesn't freeze any of its food and will not operate a drive-thru window. In keeping with its stores' interior theme, the Belmont restaurant will feature a red-and-white interior, and customers will order and pick up food at the counter. The food is cooked in an open kitchen, and the simple menu features burgers, hot dogs, a few sandwiches and hand-cut fries.
With a huge assortment of unlimited toppings, customers can theoretically order their burgers 250,000 ways.
