The rumors were true.
Five Guys, known for its standard two-patty burgers and famous for being known as President Barack Obama's favorite burger spot, is coming to San Bruno.
The Shops at Tanforan recently announced that Five Guys will move into the location formerly occupied by Mai Thai on the second floor of the mall, across from the movie theater.
Nicolle Blanco, the mall's marketing director, said the fast food restaurant is expected to open in October, although no exact date has been announced.
When the San Bruno location opens, it will be one of a number of Five Guys restaurants on the Peninsula. Burlingame has one, and two more are planned in Belmont and Redwood City.
