Five Guys Cockeysville was a happening place last Thursday when my crew of people got together to give their final verdict on Five Guys Burgers vs Koopers Chowhound Burger Wagon burgers.
Through Twitter, a group of us set the date, and we sat outside to enjoy the 70+ degree weather.
The verdict? Unanimous. Five Guys Burgers won.
As Derek Massey of Mid-Atlantic Settlement Services commented on my post about Five Guys over Kooper’s:
“We’re talking about the Rolls Royce of burgers here. 2 handmade, never frozen patties with cheese between them? Rolls so fresh it’s like they just popped out of the oven? Free peanuts? The burger experience to which all others are compared….”
Molly White of Molly White Marketing also joined us. Even her one year old daughter seemed to agree.
“BaltimoreTom“, an infamous twitter personality, and his son joined us, as did Mario Armstrong, media personality and technology advocate, best known as the “tech guy” from CNN.
SushiGirl1223 from twitter also joined us, noting that Derek had been there also the day before. Why? Well, he loves Five Guys burgers. But also, it helped him to become “Mayor” of the Cockeysville Five Guys location on FourSquare.
Rounding out the group was our local foodie expert, Jessica Lemmo, The Baltimore Restaurant Examiner. As Jessica said, “Love my 5 Guys all the way with everything!”
Now, to be fair, it is a restaurant location versus a truck that cooks at individual stops. My next challenge will be to these same folks to eat at Kooper’s Tavern in Fell’s Point to taste test their burgers on site for it to be a true comparison.
However, if you are looking for a good burger in Northern Baltimore County, make sure to stop by Five Guys Burgers and Fries Cockeysville. You’ll be glad you did!
Five Guys Burgers and Fries Cockeysville is located at 10015 York Road, Cockeysville, MD 21030.
Nice write-up, Marney. As usual it was great seeing you, Lisa and Molly. And it was a true pleasure to meet Tom, Mario and Jessica (she was *officially* there, right?).
I really don’t want to like Five Guys. I’m trying to eat better and exercise, and if I had my way I’d adore salmon and avocado. But alas, my DNA pulls me to these delicious burgers. Whenever I go I expect that will be the time it will jump the shark for me, but it never does. I keep hearing from west-coasters that In-N-Out Burgers are better – I’d love to compare, but I believe I’m geographically challenged in that regard.
Next up I say we hit Basta Pasta in Timonium?
