Much better than B ..... K .... or Mc ...... you know!

My wife and I were babysitting our grandsons while my son and his wife went out for a nice, relaxing dinner. We told the boys that we would take them to dinner, and asked where they would like to go. They both yelled in unison "Five Guys!" I have been meaning to stop in one of their locations... read more

I stop in this store occasionally cause I love their burgers and fries. The peanut oil they use don't repeat on me like other cooking oils do. BUT I learned a long time ago--I can't eat a large burger and small fries here--the burger is too big! When you ask for fries you not only get the size you requested... More

I really like 5 guys. I like the juicy burgers, and the fries are whole potatoes freshly fried. But this one was exceptional. First it was clean clean clean. They were wiping down tables and sweeping the floors constantly! The garbage cans were emptied and the place was busy at lunch on a Saturday. The staff was pleasant and efficient.... More

Forget the fast food chains. If you want a tasty burger made to order with what ever you want on it to top it off then head to Five Guys. Delicious burgers, tasty fresh fries (I like them with Malt Vinegar) and salted peanuts you can shell, you are in for a treat. If you like spicy fries try the... More

Fried burgers lack flavor.Excellent fries. Signs all over boasting how good they are. And they are, compared to Wendys and McDonalds.

This is a place that you hate to love. There food is so good and tasty, but yet so bad for your cholesterol. We have to limit ourselves to between 2-3 times a year because if we didn't, we would be addicted and weigh 500 lbs in no time at all. A must try for anything who loves an insane... More

It is fast-food, not a restaurant. I came here for the first time with my roommate a few days ago, and it is nothing special. Far better places to eat in the area with a better atmosphere for the same tasting burgers and fries.

They're popping up all over, which isn't a bad thing. Except for the home grill, there's not a place to find a better fast-food burger. And they know how to do fries.

This place is GREAT! It's sooooo good we have to control ourselves and visit only once a month or less. The french fries are the best! And, if you go away from here hungry, you ordered the wrong stuff!
