Great burgers, very consistent, just what you expect from Five Guys

I've been to this location four times in the past year and it's just what you come to expect from Five Guys, consistent as the original location in Arlington, Virginia. Not all Five Guys locations are the same anymore, which I guess is the downside of major franchise expansion, as this restaurant... read more

people rave about 5 Guys but I find their fries greasy and salty. The burgers are average but freshly made. I'd choose other places over this .

Yummmmmm! I love this place. Been eating there ever since it opened! The staff are great and the burgers & fries can't be beat. I have celiac disease and they do a lettuce wrap for me that is really good. I do, however, take a paper plate and fork when I go just in case. Good place to eat. But... More

I have eaten at many Five Guys throughout the South and find them to be kind of hit or miss. Its either a really, really good one, or just mediocre. This particular location has been consistently very good each time I have eaten there. Recently, I decided to try the grilled vegetable sandwich -- holy cow that was really good,... More

Ever been to a 5 Guys? Then this just exactly what you'd expect, a great burger, to many fries to eat, and free peanuts. The service was up to 5 Guys normal standards and the food came out fast.

Even though this is one of Five Guys busiest stores, and when we stopped in it was a Friday evening, the employees had our order in a matter of minutes. The menu touts a variety of sizes of your choice of burger, fries, hot dogs and more. The gluten free/food allergy customers can be rest assured that their order was... More

Great cooked to order burgers that is always delicious. Their fries are even better than their burgers. Staff is always friendly and prices have remained low over all the years

Exactly what you expect from Five Guys. Love the fries in the brown bag, delicious burgers with your choice of toppings. Fast, hot, free peanuts while you wait, you can refill your drink. Not cheap, but worth the price.

Hamburgers are very good, but the fries are the best I've had at a hamburger joint. They size of the fry order is gigantic - a large order is enough for three or four people to share. The restaurant is clean and the staff is very friendly. Look forward to returning!!
