“Wish we had these in Canada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Wow, it's hard enough to get hand-cut fries made fresh, not frozen and hand made hamburger patties. At Five Guys you get both in the same place! Add friendly, enthusiastic staff, clean and bright surroundings, and for a reasonable price. Why would anyone ever go to the golden arches if there's a Five Guys nearby?

“Excellent burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

This was our first time to dine at a “Five Guys.” The staff was friendly and helpful. The hard rock music was so loud we had to stand by the counter in order to hear our number called when our order was ready. The burgers were excellent; the fries were thick and greasy. Free roasted peanuts in the shell are available to snack on while you wait for your food. The place would be perfect if they turned down the music … and offered a salad as a healthy choice to accompany the burgers. No drive-through available. (2) cheeseburgers, (1) hamburger, (1) large fry & (3) drinks came to $32.

“Super nice staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Yummy food, cool, kind of retro environment ... but the staff was the best. They were very welcoming and seemed to be happy, which rubbed off on us. Just a bunch of sweethearts.

“A bit of Hamburger Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

lots of peanuts. Great potatoes. Delicious burgers. This was a real experience of a burger resturant for an Australian. Enjoyed the food. Tasty beef. Even enough to take away with us.
