Very tasty burger

If you're in need of a burger without having to sit down and order than Five Guys is the place for you. I have visited many on the island and they're all great. Cash and card accepted.

Fast food is fast food, but trust me that the burger here is much better than you expect and totally better than any other fast food chain, and I have tried them all! It was my first time trying it but in seconds I realized that it is now my favorite: don't forget especially to add the mushrooms and grilled... More

My first visit to NY, and this was my first meal there! Wow, all I can say! If you like burgers, don't walk past this place, and the fries are to die for ;0)

Not as good as other five guys I have been to but it still hit the spot. I ordered a bacon and cheese burger with some fries. It was perfectly good but just match up to other five guys I have been too. For the value you can't complain and there's always a good atmosphere in the place

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
