So it turns out Five Guys Burgers is indeed coming to 5550 Wilshire on the Miracle Mile.
I Love Los Angeles, But... reported in August that the East Coast Burger joint’s website said a restaurant there was “coming soon” and it tweeted that it would open in “the fall,” but there was no work going on. That was until Thursday, when a worker was spotted on a crane hammering on the facade, and a day later the sign is up in all of its glory.
Still though there appears to be no work being done on the interior — the opposite of the Ono Hawaiian BBQ next door, which worked on the inside for months, then put up its sign days before it opened.
Five Guys only has a month and a half to make good on its promise to open in the fall. I don’t think they’ll get there, but at least it will be open sometime in our carnivorous future.
