“typical Five Guys”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Family ate here for our first meal. Kids had never eaten at a Five Guys before, but the wife and I had two days earlier. It was typical fare for them, with the abundance of fries. nothing spectacular but a good meal in a hurry. Muich better than McD or similar.

“A Darn Good Burger & Fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Need it, want it, gotta have it! Quick, hot, juicy, tasty, cheap. Pick the size burger you want, pick the toppings, & don't forget the fries. A bag of fries will feed 4 girls on a diet or 2 hungry college guys. What more can one say? It's one of the best burgers around.

“What's All The Fascination with 5 Guys?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Seriously, for the same price you can get better burgers at several nearby restaurants with sit down dining that isn't covered in peanut shells, trash, crying babies, and that smells like grease. The burgers are always cooked well done, it takes forever to get one, and while the lettuce and toppings are fresh, they aren't anything special. By the time you add the super, super greasey fries, you can go down to a nice sit down restaurant and get a better version. If you have peanut allergies, don't go near 5 Guys. They have big bins of shelled peanuts to tie you over while you wait forever for your burger. The shells are everywhere.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

1st time Five Guys for us. Had to taste what all the hype is about. We enjoyed our burgers and I just loved the fries. My husband was looking for a milk shake but so sorry, none to be had. Coke worked just as well. Waiting to go back again.

“Upholds the Five Guys Reputation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I have always enjoyed Five Guys from the start of the chain to present. Their burgers are consistently good (may not be the best ever, but they compare well to burgers costing double or triple their price and leave the chains in the dust), the fries are fresh and flavorful (I still get a kick out of knowing where they come from), and the free peanuts you can shell and eat while waiting are still a nice touch. My burger was what I hoped for and the fries were excellent (too many to eat)! This particular Five Guys has a really welcoming crew working the counter and the grill.
