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

Classic Five Guys--yummy burgers and some of the best french fries on the planet for a quick lunch! It's just half a block off the main drag of King Street.

Family ate here for our first meal. Kids had never eaten at a Five Guys before, but the wife and I had two days earlier. It was typical fare for them, with the abundance of fries. nothing spectacular but a good meal in a hurry. Muich better than McD or similar.

Need it, want it, gotta have it! Quick, hot, juicy, tasty, cheap. Pick the size burger you want, pick the toppings, & don't forget the fries. A bag of fries will feed 4 girls on a diet or 2 hungry college guys. What more can one say? It's one of the best burgers around.

Seriously, for the same price you can get better burgers at several nearby restaurants with sit down dining that isn't covered in peanut shells, trash, crying babies, and that smells like grease. The burgers are always cooked well done, it takes forever to get one, and while the lettuce and toppings are fresh, they aren't anything special. By the time... More
