Eat, Sydney / 22 September 2021

Experience the best of the beloved US burger chain with Five Guys landing in Penrith.

Sydney, we know you love a good burger. If you’re looking for some of our favorite spots, we’ve put together a guide to help you find the best burgers in Sydney. And in exciting news, Penrith has just scored an epic new burger joint that has achieved cult-like status over in the United States.

Say hello to Five Guys, the beloved burger chain that has taken the US, Europe, Middle East and Asia by storm (with over 1,654 stores operating across the globe). In big foodie news, the crew from Five Guys have teamed up with Seagrass Boutique Hospitality Group (responsible for local favourites such as The Meat & Wine Co., Hunter & Barrel, 6HEAD and Ribs & Burgers).

This exclusive franchise agreement will see Five Guys open in Australia and New Zealand for the first time ever, with places to open a string of new Five Guys stores around countries in the coming months. Five Guys has come a long way, from humble beginnings as a small burger joint in Virginia back in 1986 to an international burger chain (earning a cult following and voted many times to be the world’s #1 burger restaurant).

So, what can you expect from these new Five Guys stores? The chain is famous for its hand-cut fries and handcrafted range of delicious burgers, hotdogs and oh-so-delicious milkshakes. There are no freezers at Five Guys, meaning every dish is made using fresh ingredients, prepared in-store by their team of burger artists.

Expect everything from bacon cheese hotdogs to classic hamburgers and cheeseburgers as well as the classic Five Guys style fries (made using fresh-cut potatoes cooked in pure, 100% peanut oil). Make sure to leave room for a Five Guys shake, with these handspun vanilla milkshakes (made with or without whipped cream) featuring as many free mix-ins as you (featuring everything from bacon to Oreo cookies, peanut butter, salted caramel and so much more).

Five Guys and Seagrass BHG are hoping to open 20 stores nationwide and are currently on the hunt for the perfect sites in Sydney.
