Five Guys wins best burger competition

by Leslie Turk

The burger joint going up on Ambassador Caffery Parkway at Settlers Trace once again topped a new survey of burger chains.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries won out in Market Force Information's survey of 7,600 consumers, leading the list in every region it operates. Lafayette is getting its first Five Guys location later this year on Ambassador Caffery Parkway at Settlers Trace, next to Starbucks.

The Los Angeles Times reports that In-N-Out was second, followed by Fuddruckers, A&W and Smashburger.

Dairy Queen ranked last in the group of 16 chains considered. Burger King, Hardee's, McDonald's and Jack in the Box rounded out the bottom five.
Five Guys ranked best in categories including food quality and taste, service, cleanliness and atmosphere. The only category in which it failed to rank No. 1 was best overall value; In-N-Out won that category.
