Five Guys Named America’s Favorite Burger
America has spoken, and they've named a new king in the burger chain category. And guess what! We've got one of the chains right here in deep east Texas!
According to The Harris Poll, Five Guys Burgers and Fries topped two-time reigning leader In-N-Out Burger for the best burger category. The top ten list in the burger category looked like this:
1. Five Guys
2. In-N-Out (Not to be confused with Lufkin's phone repair place)
3. Shake Shack
8. Sonic America's Drive-In
10. Steak 'N Shake
We actually have five of the ten right here in our backyard! I realize that burgers from a chain aren't always as good as burgers from some of the local, unique burger joints, but they'll do fine in a pinch. Either way, now when our out-of-town friends talk about how much they love their In-N-Out burgers, we don't have to be too envious since we've got America's #1 anyway!
Actually, according to the Harris Poll that was conducted, we have several of the top-ranking food places.
Chick-Fil-A was the top "Chicken Restaurant", Starbucks was the top "Coffee and Quick Service Restaurant", Moe's Southwest grill was top "Fast Casual Mexican Restaurant", Papa John's was the top "Pizza Chain", and Subway was named top "Sandwich Shop".

As for me...well I think I'm going to head over to 4505 S Medford Dr. in Lufkin for a Five Guys burger. I mean, after all, it's OFFICIALLY America's favorite burger.
