Stevens reveals she paid $70 for two meals that included two bacon burgers, fries, one milkshake, and a soda. At the end of the video, she claims she will not be going back.
Five Guys is an American fast-food chain that opened in 1986 and expanded to Australia in 2021. According to Australian news, ”the Sydney prices are a lot higher than in the US where the most deluxe burger costs roughly $12 in Australian dollars.”
In the video, she showed her receipt, including one bacon cheeseburger for $22 and a little bacon cheeseburger for $19.
The comments section quickly filled with viewers’ opinions on the fast food chain.
“Whataburger is much better and much cheaper,” one user said.
“In Canada, that exact order would be 44.84 before tax and $47.08 after tax!” another commented.
“Yeah, no more. Price is ridiculous. They’ve definitely [taken] advantage of the times!” a third user said.
The Daily Dot reached out to both Stevens and Five Guys via email.
