The Washington Post called them the “Willa Wonkas of Burgercraft” in a review, and they have been Zagat-rated for nine years. With monstrous burgers and ridiculously large portions of fries, Five Guys Burgers and Fries recently opened a new location at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wis. The national chain now has six Milwaukee-area locations, and in 2010 is looking to open up 200 more chains across the US.
The Mayfair location opened in the storefront formerly occupied by The Sharper Image and a Laacke & Joys seasonal location (for longtime Milwaukee residents you might also remember it was once home to Mr. Bulky’s candy store), across from Panera Bread on the shopping center’s first floor. The restaurant has an indoor mall entrance and an outside sidewalk entrance.
