Biggest Hamburger!

Very good food. The hamburger was so big it could have been my entire meal. Good prices. Lots of seating.

Reader beware, the food here is addictive. I was once in a dark place for a period of about a month last summer. I would sit through lectures, mouth watering, unable to focus on professors because I needed my Five Guys fix. The atmosphere is welcoming. The fries are the best in town. But those burgers.... I'm not proud of... More

If you are looking for a decent meal, Five Guys is a good stop. This restaurant sits just a few minutes from campus. You should expect to pay over ten dollars for your meal at this restaurant. While the burgers are good, they are nothing special. On the other hand, the fries (cajun) are definitely something to try.

Yeah, yeah, there are 700+ calories in a burger......walk it off and don't feel guilty. Great service from fun employees.

We stopped at the Five Guys in State College PA during the 2014 Parent and Family Weekend at Penn State University Park. The proximity to campus is great, but frankly we were disappointed in the quality and the price of the food on this visit. The rest of my family ordered burgers which they liked, but I'd recently had a... More

I don't get caught up in the hype of Five guys. They have a basic menu. The burgers are OK..they are just burgers! Yeah they do hot dogs too.

Typical Five Guys food. Good burger and fries. Not the cleanest restaurant, but not the dirtiest. These type of places never seem to have anyone assigned to wipe down tables and the condiment areas on a regular basis. Go figure.

Really delicious hamburgers and fries, served super quick. This is a great place to eat in any town we're visiting. You can always count on Five Guys for a great product.

I had 2 meals while staying in state college. I had cheeseburger with a lot of varieties to build my sandwich. The fires was freshly cooked. The service was quick.

You know, you can go to one of those fast food joints for a burger, and guess what, it'll taste like a fast food burger. While you pay a bit more at five guys for your beef, the burgers just plain taste better. And the fries come up hot and greasy like they are supposed to be. Want a good... More
