Rhonda’s Pick – Five Guys
A longtime employee of University District, Rhonda has worked at the University District Discovery Centre since it opened in 2017. She has seen the community transform from its initial construction to the award-winning urban community it is today.
Rhonda’s favourite burger in University District is from Five Guys. “The burgers taste so fresh, and you always get great value at Five Guys,” says Rhonda. She was a fan of how hefty the patties were and the overflowing amount of fries she got on the side.
