Five Guys burgers coming to Amherst this summer

Five Guys burgers and fries have a wide following on the East Coast, but they haven't made it closer than Rochester. That's supposed to change in July or August, with a location at Maple and Transit roads,'s Ben Tsujimoto reports.

"Co-owner Steve Christensen will submit his plans to the town of Amherst later this week, the final move after an extended search.  Two more locations will open in the 716 before the end of the calendar year."

Five Guys isn't a full-service restaurant, so it's hard to compare to the Red Robins of the world. But its approach has won them a legion of fans, and not just on Facebook. Its stores are notoriously devoid of microwaves and freezers, underscoring its claim to selling only freshly prepared food.

Plus, there's free peanuts.
