BEST NEW FAST FOOD: Five Guys

Yes, these guys have already attracted a slew of alt-weekly Best-ofs from around the country — but there's something about this chain's hyper-specialization that needs to be recognized. Burgers — toppings are free, patties are thicker than typical fast food. Fries — freshly cut, fried crisp and heavily salted. Paper bags splattered to greasy translucence contain food that tastes of greasy transcendence, all for about $5. 2702 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, 813-977-4400; 13149 N.
