Attention downtown burger fiends: Five Guys is now open at Yonge and Dundas

Ever since Five Guys announced its expansion into Toronto, the city’s burger fiends (and there are many of them) have been champing at the bit for a taste of the Virginia-based chain’s signature smashed patties. On Sunday, the Yonge and Dundas location opened its doors, and it’s been mostly packed ever since, despite locations in Don Mills and Mississauga which have been open for some time now. Five Guys has already dominated the “better burger” market in the States (it has over 1,000 locations), but with a new burger joint opening every other week or so in Toronto, it’ll have its work cut out for it.
