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

I love Five Guys food. They have a lot of toppings to chose from to make the burgers how ever you want. The fries are delicious and plentiful. There are enough fries in the regular size for 2 people to share. We made the mistake of each ordering fries the first time we went. Wayyyyy too many fries! They have... More

We came in on Thursday night not expecting much. What caught my eye was tasteful and thematic decoration of this place and.... free peanuts. That's right: you can get fried peanuts in shells and graze as much as you want. The burgers were just the way you want them when you think of a burger, when you have this feeling... More

Amazing burgers and fries. You choose what to add to the burger and they prepare in front of you. Simple place but great food.

Burgers, Fries, and Dogs- The way you like 'em. Five Guys makes no bones about it- these are made the old fashioned way- greasy and full of flavor. If you're looking for FuFu burgers, or some politically correct fast food- this AIN'T it..... The seasoned fried are a nice alternative to the plain ones...The topping selection can make most burger... More

It was very noisy, and the food was extremely greasy. I suppose this the signature of this chain of restaurants, but it wasn't for me. Service was very slow, and there were also mistakes with the order so this may have tainted my overall opinion of the place.
