Five Guys, Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea

DESCRIPTION

It was around 7:15pm September 25, 2018 that I went into Five Guys on Huntington Ave, Boston, MA and ordered a BLT Sandwich with only the things they normally serve on it. Less than an hour later, my belly started growling and cramping. I initially decided that I was going to wait until I got home to use my bathroom but I could not wait b/c I would have been going home with a smelly mess. It got to the point where I wasn't even able to walk because of the cramps. Eventually, I got off a seat and made it to the bathroom where I had a complete blowout, at the train station of all places SMH. I will never be going back to any Five Guys!!!!!!!!!! Read More

DESCRIPTION

I went for Happy hour and I ordered the Chicken fajitas which tasted so disgusting that I had to return them. So I just settled for 2 long islands and a cheesecake. As I was eating the cheesecake, it tasted a bit funny with a bitter after taste.. but I wasn't sure if it was my taste buds changing due to the Long Island drinks. My stomach was in so much pain for the next 2 days and I was constantly in the bathroom for diarrhea. I will never go there again. I didnt use any medication to stop the diarrhea because I wanted my body to fully flush the bad stuff out. BRAT (Banana, Rice, Apple, Toast).... helped a lot and also keeping hydrated. Read More

What To Do If You Have Food Poisioning
