Five guys

i took this pic in san diego while i was there in july, somewhere close to the beach. i just liked this wall painting from john lennon and presumed this was some men's clothing store. only this week i found out its actually a burgerplace, and that there is one relatively close to our apartment; we often drive by it, but i just never saw it. this evening we went there as we were lazy and i was curious, it was supposed to be "really good". well, it is more expensive than mc donald's. but you can choose your toppings (although i dont always like having to do that). it was just that they did mine wrong and i got pickles instead of bacon (i do think thats quite a difference), and they thought we wanted to share 2 drinks and not 1 drink and 1 fries. thats a large number of mistakes in one order.... ah well, in a way it was ok, as we ordered a large fries but now got a small one; that was already too much for the 2 of us.
i was googling around a bit about this mural above. what does john lennon have to do with burgers and fries? nothing, it appears. even worse, the mural was there before five guys was. instead of five guys, it used to say imagine. and, tourists apparently often take pictures of this painting (including me).

Some things should not be done this way. Doesn't make sense at all, hands of from John Lennon.

and yes, many people are angry that five guys just painted over parts of this mural!

Did you get your free peanuts to munch on while waiting for your order? And did you go to the one next to Square One Mall? The almost neighboring Buffalo Wild Wings has good burgers too, and delicious (boneless) chicken wings. More expensive than McD too, but much better and they have beer ;) Hard on ears and eyes though, 'cause sports bar with tv's as wallpaper.

i thought the burger was good!

Much better than McDonalds? that's impossible..

noooo, we only saw the peanuts when leaving... i was looking for them as i had heard about it, but well, i guess we were already pretty full without!
we didnt go to that one, didnt know there was one there as well, it was at station landing, wellington, where they have this fancy apartment complex (more expensive than here, and i think the location is less nice)
