Best burger in town

Juicy and tasty beef burger with different selection of sauce and fillings... Cagun fries is something not to miss... Hotdogs is very tasty. Unlimited drinks is good too :)

Not your average burger joint. Young serving staff tend to make the visit light-hearted. Whereas tipping is not the norm in regular fast-food places, at The Five Guys, tipping is allowed and, in fact, is warranted.

Then Five Guys is for you. Their toppings aren't complicated, but they are plentiful, and if what you want is a delicious burger, you will not be disappointed.

Honestly at first I thought paying $10 for a burger was a little pricey but then I thought about what you pay for at McDonalds and Burger King and reconsidered considering it is REAL meat. They fill your fries container to the top dump it in the bag and fill it again. The only thing missing on thier menu that... More

Five Guys does a decent hamburger in a fun atmosphere. It takes awhile to get the burger , but if you are looking for a homemade quality burger , it is worth it. The fries are old school classic; heavy , greasy and lost of them. Free refills on drinks is a nice touch. The employees are enthusiastic and well... More

I love their fries and their burgers are good too, however you pay upscale prices for better than average fast food. I guess I am spoiled since I come from Montreal and you can very similar food for half the money. But I do go there when my Montreal style fry fix.

This is the burger you have been waiting for!! If you are a burger lover, don't scorn Five Guys because it is a chain - the burgers are beyond compare. The atmosphere is completely relaxed, simple table and bags of potatoes. The chalk board by the ordering station will tell you with tongue in cheek which farm supplied the fries... More

I was looking for a quick bite and thats exactly what I got... Its a little expensive for what it is, and nothing out of the ordinary for a fast food place. Its great for a quick lunch on the go, and their fries are good, but I wouldnt go out of my way to eat there.
