We came home one evening looking for a good burger place and drove by Five Guys Burger and Fries off 130th Ave SE in McKenzie Towne. The place was packed for an odd time of evening to drop in, so it was a good sign.
Once inside, the line up was long and they had boxes of peanuts where you can eat and take! It’s a pretty good idea as the food did come out rather slowly – but they’re actually making it for you when you order! We had their Cheeseburger and it turns out to be a double patty – large burger and messy! It was quite delicious and greasy!
I also felt like ordering some fries, so we settled on a small Cajan Fries which was seasoned with probably cajan seasoning. It wasn’t bad and they gave lots of fries! They even poured an extra scooop of fries on the top of the bag when our order was ready! It was hot and awesome!
Overall, our experience here was actually surprisingly better than expected! We’ve tried other Five Guys locations and I think this one a better!

I finally got to try Fries & Dolls as they came to Deerfoot Meadows in Calgary. I’ve always wanted to try them and I finally had the opportunity to. It’s wonderful and worth the wait! The wait was around 20-25 minutes from line up to satisfying my belly.
Because of their creativity, they have names for each of the types of fries and sweet potato fries they carry on their truck. The names of the sizes ranged from B Cup to D Cup which I think is a brilliant idea! On top of that, the fries are named after the dolls.
We ordered Marianne and Ginger which was Sweet Potato Fries – with Cajan spice. It was sweet and spicy which was a great combination! We had it with their chipotle sauce which was really a nice sauce for dipping.
A great added bonus with Fries & Dolls, they are environmentally conscience as well, as they use biodegradable cups for their fries and forks. It’s great seeing the movement slowly kicking in gear!
I enjoyed the experience, and best of all, I enjoyed the fries! I would definitely be returning when they’re in my area when I have time! 🙂
