At 35 percent, doesn't seem as though Five Guys was as clear a winner in Herndon as the rest of the towns...would be nice to know the other places that followed closely too...

Five Guys is so GREASY!! If I am going to eat a burger I want to taste the burger not the grease. I would guess there was limited selection to choose from if there was chains in the selection since Five Guys was in each one.

guess no one has had a burger or fries at BGR in sterling, probably is by far the best around next to Jimmy' Old Town Tavern in Herndon. Five guys is the worst if you appreciate a good burger.

Well, we don't have a Patch in Sterling, so BGR wasn't in the running on any of our polls, but I'll definitely check them out. And hopefully so will a few other readers. Thanks for the comment.

Thanks for all the suggestions in the comments everyone. The polls in the series include places within each Patch town (so within Herndon, Reston, Ashburn, etc.). Unfortunately we don't have a Patch in some of the places suggested (Haymarket, Sterling) so those places weren't included, but it's great to know about them!

My favorite is still Glory Days "Glory" burger....it is fantastic, and not greasy.

Cheeburger Cheeburger in the Wegman's shopping center in Ashburn is by far better than Five Guys. Awesome onion rings too!
