Meaty, cheesy, smoky bacony, juicy and filling, what more could you ask for. I loved it. The fact the potatoes are stacked up in the store with a sign that states who grew... read more

Five Guys was one our first food experiences in New York, and we were not disappointed. The service was very fast but friendly, and we were guided through each step of creating the best bespoke burger any of us had tasted. Excellent value, would certainly recommend to anyone wanting a great NY style burger.

Five Guys is excellent food for less money. You get more than enough in a portion. We had burgers and shared the fries between 3 people. We still couldn't finish it. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Very clean and tidy. There was no rubbish left on tables. Customers cleaned up after themselves. Would definitely visit again.

Burgers are a trend dish at the moment around the world and we had to eat one of the best burgers in the city (according to different guides). We went there and ordered 2 cheeseburgers. There is a free choice of toppings to choose from. The fries are real Idaho potatoes and fresh. The burgers were delicious and so were... More

Good cheap burgers and fries in a fast food ambiance. Good staff! You can create your own burger, by adding as much toppings as wanted.

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)

Staying in Midtown

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.
