Drool-worthy burger bar Five Guys is set to open its first chain in the island of Ireland next month, in Belfast’s Victoria Square shopping centre.

The US fast-food chain has jumped across the water and will begin churning out its legendary burgers come December as the busy festive season kicks off.

The burger bar’s distinct signage was put into place this week, and Victoria Square Shopping Centre has confirmed that the country’s first Five Guys will open in mid-December although an exact date has not been set in stone.

The restaurant is famous for its heavenly but bold offerings and the Five Guys menu boasts American favourites on a different scale including prime beef bacon burgers, bacon hot dogs and even milkshakes topped with bacon.

Burger enthusiasts around Ireland have already been planning roadtrips with the intention of scoffing some of Five Guys’ most pleasurable treats.

“Sweet merciful Christ. Five Guys is opening mid-December in Belfast,” Sam Elliot tweeted.

“I will travel to Belfast for a Five Guys and that is a fecking fact,” said Dublin based Hannah Moynihan.

Dean Murphy said: “I let out a squeal when I seen Five Guys was opening up.”

Earlier this year it was announced that the US franchise would be making its way to Ireland, with five restaurants planned for the Republic and Northern Ireland.
