Five Guys Burgers and Fries continues its rapid westward expansion, moving from outlying suburbs to denser Los Angeles neighborhoods, with new locations planned for Miracle Mile and Westwood.
Though it serves much cheaper burgers at a much lower price point, the Miracle Mile Five Guys at 5500 Wilshire Boulevard should give The Counter, located a few blocks west at the corner of Curson Avenue, some competition.
The Westwood location at 1061 Broxton Avenue will challenge the bustling In-N-Out located a block-and-a-half northwest on Gayle Ave. The Westwood Five Guys will also be conveniently located a stone's throw from Diddy Riese, for a post-burger ice cream cookie sandwich.
