The restaurant selection off the Northway at Exit 12 just got Five times better.

Let's be honest, there was already a whole bunch of great restaurants in the Exit 12 area of Malta. I only say it got 5 times better because there is now a Five Guys burger joint open in the area! For me, Five Guys is the best burger joint in the history of mankind. I have the gut to prove it!

According to The Saratogian, a new Five Guys location on Kelch Drive (Right off Route 67) just celebrated their grand opening. The new location is being run by Savita and Tejraj Hada of Guilderland, who currently own 22 Five Guys locations including several in the Capital Region.

As far as burgers go, we have the best of the best of chains here in the Capital Region. We have several that really deliver the goods. But for me, you can't beat the one that started the trend of great burger chains: Five Guys. It will be nice to have the best of the best in Malta. And even if you do not live in the area, it's another great place to pit stop on that next trip to Lake George! Chances are you will run into me there. ;)
