As the ones we have here are crap I wouldn't mind a new one (they best move into the premises of the existing ones ). I haven't had a decent burger in ages.

What do you mean by that? I like the idea of hamburgers but not the soggy stuff I'm offered by MD and BK. Where is the oxymoron?
(Unless you know "Five Guys" - which I don't - and it's the same crap. LOL).

He had no opinion about it?

He's the kind of guy who would choose a burger in a Michelin star restaurant, but he didn't like Five Guys.

"He didn't rate it (at all)" means he rated it very lowly, i.e. he thought it wasn't very good.

Re: Five Guys

I don't care for their burgers given there are plenty of good restaurants in town with very nice burgers. But good milkshakes in Zürich, now that would be a win, and make me come there at least once a week to grab one.

Re: Five Guys

Plenty of good milkshakes in town already.

Good burgers, definitely around too.

Zurich is pricy, Five Guys won't be cheaper than Holy Cow.

Nothing really interesting, really.

I prefer Chickeria (with Swiss Poulet) over KFC (with steroid-filled dutch "chicken") too.

Did Blick purposely put two very unappealing pictures of the food in the article?

An other thing that might get criticized here is they serve it all in tinfoil. Out here, very out.

But Chickeria and Holy Cow are both 100% terrible. I can't vouch for Five Guys as I have not tried it before. Best burgers in Zürich are at Burger Meister on Langstrasse. The Butcher is also OK. Not that bothered about Milkshakes/Frappes as thats really a thing for kids.
