  1. Feeling the heat from smashburger?

    They are testing them here at the Stafford Marketplace Five Guys in Stafford VA too, I got one with PB, Bacon and caramel. Amazing milkshake,

    $4.49 for a milkshake? GTFO.
    You can go to Braum’s, which has their own ice cream shop and get a fresh made milkshake with real premium ice cream and dozens of choices of ice cream for $2 which is one of the best milkshakes you will ever get in your life. How on God’s earth is this worth more than double?

    • TJ says:

      Thanks for the tip.. oh wait I probably can’t as I’ve never heard of the place you’re talking about and it’s probably not within 1000 miles of me…

      • Jonathan Wayne says:

        Is In N Out near to you either, probably not, so what’s your point? People talk about In N Out and Chick Fil A all the time and they aren’t in most of the states in this country, El Pollo Loco, Raising Caine’s and a whole lot of other places. Braum’s in located in the largest state of the union, so chances are more than a few people have heard of it and eaten there.

    • Wayne Jonathan says:

      Thanks for the scoop, scholar. I live about a twenty-four hour drive from the closest Braum’s, though. Do you think the gasoline required to get there would make their $2 milkshake cost more? Let me know. I’m not good at making my own decisions.

    • Sascha says:

      You really do come up with the most random places. Looks like Braum’s is available in Oklahoma and Kansas, with one in Missouri. So, that means that about 98% of us CAN’T go to Braum’s, but can go to Five Guys.

      And if Five Guys puts as much effort into their shakes as they do their burgers and fries, I’ll happily try one if they reach my market.

      • Justin ST says:

        Wow, some of you people are so nasty! You do realize that Five Guys and Braum’s aren’t the only places that sell milkshakes now, right? Even the gas stations have them!

  4. monkeyrotica says:

    So is “Braum’s” a national chain? Didn’t think so.

    • Jonathan Wayne says:

      That’s not the point, in fact it bolsters my argument. A national chain has purchasing power and economies of scale on its side so in theory the $2 shake from Braum’s should cost even less at Five Guys. If a small scale chain can give you premium milkshake for $2, how can Five Guys sell you some processed inferior shake (since they don’t carry ice cream in their stores) for more than double the price? If you are happy paying almost $5 for something that should $2 or less, then hey, more power to you.

      In N Out is not a national chain either, but they have no problem selling their burgers for half the price of Five Guys and you don’t see anyone complaining that they have to pay less there.

    We have an immersion blender thingy to make milkshakes but we never use it. I suspect my hubs will show up with a Five Guys shake at some point soon in his life.

  6. Emily says:

    Had one at the Five Guys on 110 on Long Island about a month ago. Was priced at $3.99 there and was decently sized. Was also nice that I could mix in as many toppings as I wanted– and there were a lot. I ended up with peanut butter, oreo cream, caramel, and whipped cream on top. Would recommend 🙂

  7. I love Braum’s, I go visit every time I see family in Oklahoma. But I’m sure that the Braum’s in Chickasha, OK pays a whole lot less in lot rent than the Five Guys in downtown DC.

    • Justin ST says:

      Five Guys would charge this much in cheap strip malls in the Metro Detroit area too. What is your point?

    • Sascha says:

      I’m thinking Jon exaggerated his experience a bit anyway. Braum’s really does a good job of hiding themselves on the internet. Most places welcome extra attention and gaving knowledge of the place, but getting info on Braum’s is extremely difficult. However, I have read two accounts of milkshakes, one costing $3.50 and one costing $4.- I’ve also seen 5 Guys for $3.99 and for $4.49, and what I like about 5 Guys is that they’re treating it like their burgers, add all the toppings you want, same price. So, if you wanted, not that you would, you could have a bacon, oreo, coffee, peanut butter, malted milk, strawberry shake.
