This so-called hamburguers place was a total dissapointment for us, the place was not even clean as well as the toilettes where a total mess. I don't recommend anyone looking for a healthy place (not only b-cause the food, the unhealthly tidyness was even worse) to visit this store. Stay away

It was out of the way but close to 5th and Central Park so convenient that way...The food was fine, nothing amazing, I don't get the hype...I would not go again...It is not a bad place to eat, but it certainly does not warrant a trip especially for it...

Get in the queue, it's worth it, simple double or single burger all the way (means all the general toppings) generous servings of fries. So order the small portion, get yourself a drink and its a perfect low cost American meal

Unfortunately we don't have Five Guys in Italy. When I came to NY it was a great discover ! I loved their hamburgers with fresh lettuce and tomatoes. The french fries were simply great. Hope to eat there soon.

Whilst in the USA I ate at Five Guys various times and at this establishment twice! Five Guys burgers are fantastic; it is hard to believe this is a chain resturant If you don't know burgers don't eat here; however if your a burger fan you need to check it out!

My kids wanted to go here so bad. My daughter has been at one of these restaurants in Michigan, so she wanted the rest of us to try it out. It was really good service and delicious food.

A mate told me about these guys so we gave them a go. The cheese and bacon burger with 'all in' was nothing short of awesome! 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 the... 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.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
