That's company policy. If they guy tried to make it look like you were getting a little something extra, then he's doing a great job of marketing.
Five Guys is good -- they use quality ingredients, and they aren't very expensive.
Do you have Backyard Burgers restaurants in your area? IMO, of all the fast food places, it tastes the most like the burgers you grill yourself. Their waffle-cut fries are weak, but it looks like they just added sweet potato fries to the menu.
