Burgers @ 5 A.M.
I’m in Washington Dulles International Airport, Terminal B, I have an early morning 6:20 flight, and I’m hungry. Fortunately, I have found a place that serves great fruit smoothies (real fruit, no sugar or syrup, nice) and I also order a plain toasted croissant. So, I’m eating my food and the pangs of hunger are dissipating when I look up and see Five Guys. If you are not familiar with Five Guys Burgers it is a popular Burger Joint in the D.C. Area. I don’t eat hamburgers that often, but I always look forward to devouring a Five Guys burger and fries, when I get the urge to consume red meat. Five Guys burgers are the kind of burgers one would make at a BBQ. It is annually voted one of the best burger joints in the D.C. area.
As I mentioned previously, I’m eating my food and I notice a manager/owner opening up Five Guys. Before I know it, the restaurant is open, lights on, ready for business, and in no time it is hoppin’! Actually, there are quite a few restaurants open at this early hour with a couple serving breakfast food, but the majority of the passengers here at Terminal B are either in line at Five Guys waiting to be served or are already dining at Five Guys. Who knew so many people eat burgers and fries for breakfast? I can’t imagine all these patrons being hungover and needing the grease in their systems to feel balanced again, but who knows? I have heard of cold pizza, chocolate cake, cookies for breakfast and I have consumed these foods for breakfast, but burgers and fries? I have always found it interesting to see what people eat for breakfast, if they eat breakfast at all. What do you eat?
