It seems that burgers from Five Guys Burgers and Fries are so good that a man broke into one just to grill himself a meal.
On March 18, a man snuck into a Five Guys restaurant in Washington, D.C., after closing time. According to International Business Times, the suspect followed a delivery man, waited for him to leave, then decided to help himself to the kitchen.
In the video, he clearly knew his way around the grill, and was considerate enough to keep the area clean while preparing his meal and enjoying a drink. On his way out, he took a bottle of water. From what can be seen on the footage, no money was touched, and nothing more expensive than a burger was taken.
Surveillance footage captured the incident, which raises so many questions. Are Five Guys burgers really good enough to break into the restaurant after hours? Did the real-life Hamburglar previously work at a Five Guys? Who was he talking with on the phone while grilling up his meal?
According to Reddit, many agree that Five Guys would be the burger joint to break into if you’re craving a late-night meal.
In fact, wouldn’t this footage make an amazing advertising campaign for the company? A man literally broke into the restaurant to make a meal. The burgers are so good he couldn’t wait for the restaurant to open the next day. The Five Guys marketing team is probably trying to figure out a way to make this work as we speak.
"We found the sixth guy," "And we didn't even have to hire him," wrote redditors SunSage and Shadowspace, respectively.
Washington D.C., police are offering up to $1,000 for information leading about the incident, enough to buy about 97 cheeseburgers.
