Five Guys Burger and Fries - Edina, MN

Anyone looking for a great quick burger fix should check out Five Guys Burger and Fries in Edina. Five Guys is no frills, but the burgers are awesome. The menu is very simple. They have burgers, dogs and fries. You pay extra for cheese and bacon. Mayo, relish, onions, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, ketchup, mustard, jalapeno peppers, green peppers, steak sauce, Bar-B-Q sauce and hot sauce are all free. The regular burgers are all doubles, so you may want to go with a "Little Burger", which is a single and load on the free toppings. They have free peanuts to snack on while you wait for your food. Five Guys Burger and Fires is located at 3871 Gallagher Drive in Centennial Lakes in Edina across from the Container Store.

Mall of America - Minneapolis - Saint Paul, MN

People who believe you can't get a decent meal when at the mall are going to have to rethink their position. There are some great new spots to check out at the Mall of America.

R Burger Bar, which is part of the House of Comedy on the fourth floor entertainment area. In addition to great burgers made from ground beef and kobe beef they also offer turkey, chicken, walleye and veggie. If you're not in the mood for a burger try one of their hot dogs or Asian wraps. Make sure you try the poutine, which is basically french fries with cheese and gravy

Crave has been called the chicest restaurant at the mall. Crave has a huge menu with across the board options including sushi, wood fired pizza, Asian, American and Italian. If you can't find something you like at Crave you must not like to eat.

Salad Fusion is a fast food hot spot specializing in fresh salads and sushi made to order.

I think Wikki Hut has the best Asian fast-food at the mall.

ChikWich serves a real mean chicken tender and chicken sandwich. Probably my favorite right after Canes on the University of Minnesota campus. Don't forget the waffle fries
