Better burgers than most...and fries. Zero ambiance, but you're not going for that, or at least I hope you're not.

Okay, to be fair, the burgers are tasty and I like to know from where my fried potatoes have come. I love the variety of the toppings. BUT, if you have any issues with blood pressure, cholesterol and/or sodium and fat in your diet, AVOID IT! You will feel the grease and salt in your system for DAYS. A better... More

There are always things in life that we wish…in this case it would be for an incredibility high metabolism and perfectly stable blood pressure so that I could enjoy Five Guys every day. These burgers are beyond juicy, the buns are tender and soft and the toppings are heaped on and in abundance. The Five Guys in Alexandria on Richmond... More

The regular burgers are huge-- I usually get a junior cheeseburger. There's a list of toppings to choose from ranging from my faves- lettuce, tomato, mayo, ketchup (but sometimes A-1), to fresh or grilled onions, mushrooms, jalepenos, and a bunch of other things I can't remember. The real star is the french fry offering. The chalkboard always lets you know... More

A chain - an fresh but incinerated burger - fries swimming in grease evident by the stained paper bag. Why would anyone say they have good food - EVER???

This is the Original Five Guys ... It's definitely worth a lunch if you're in Alexandria. It's been cleaned up since it first started, when there were peanut shells all over the floor but the lines are still just as long at lunch time!

We kept hearing how good Five Guys is, so although we steer clear of fast food places we decided to give it a try. It was just like fast food burgers and fries to us -- nothing special. The only interesting difference were the peanuts you munch on while waiting for your order to come up. No point in going... More

Just ate here tonight with my husband and 3 kids. Our first time at a five guys. Burgers are really yummy! And real french fries, they were sooo good, just like at a fair. I had ordered 5 small fries and the guy said "Why don't you get two large instead, there will be plenty", so I did and we... More
