“Greasy and Smoky”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I don't think I will visit Five Guys again. I was overwhelmed by the amount of smoke coming from the shop. As I was standing in line waiting for my lunch, I realized that I would smell like charred meat for the rest of the day, and I was right. When I did receive my food, it tasted fine, but it was so oily, I felt bad about it. But some people are really in love with this place. I would suggest trying it once.

On our first night (which was a Sunday) in Washington stumble upon this burger bar, decoration is very basic but great value the portions of chip are massive, well worth a visit.

Popped in for burger and fries. Had a lovely meal, burgers were very juicy and fresh. Plenty of trimmings to add. We had s large portion of fries between two and couldnt finish them.

“Stop the madness”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

What is the love affair with this greasy burger joint. It's an average burger. Its messy. The fries bleed grade. Shake shack better. Rays the burger better. Probably many places better. Keep walking. It's not what people say. It's average at best and full of vitamin G.

“Great Burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Visited Five Guys during a business trip to Washington recently. Ordered a double meat with all the toppings, and was overwhelmed with the amount of burger. Couldn't finish it but not because of quality. It was an excellent burger, juicy and loaded with flavor and the seasoned fries were awesome. the fries were spilling out of the bag there were so many. Ended eating here several times over the days we were there.
