Upset alert! Throughout 16 years of Best of Missoula voting, very few national chains have crept into the winner’s circle. But perhaps Five Guys
isn’t a typical chain. The Washington, D.C.-based burger joint-often called the In-N-Out of the East, and known as one of President Obama’s favorite spots-serves up double-patties topped with any condiment you could ever possibly want. The Missoula Club
needs less of an introduction. This downtown institution-better known as the Mo Club, and visited by former President Clinton during his wife’s presidential primary campaign-is cherished for its handmade patties and down-home atmosphere. This type of epic standoff reminds us of the Gore-Bush race in 2000-and makes us very hungry. Missoula Club:
139 W. Main; 728-3740.
