“Basic burgers but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We have heard good things about Five Guys, and decided to try it out. We were surprised how much meat (two patties) are on the standard burger, and next time will know to order the small one. The standard burger is very much like a Wendy's Double. The atmosphere is hustle-bustle and no frills. Not in the same league as Fuddrucker's or Hamburger Hamlet. McDonald's Angus burgers are better than these and are easier to manage than two slippery patties.

“5 Guys”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great burgers but the atmosphere was like being in a small warehouse--noisy. Food was prepared fast and as ordered. Excellent fries-- crispy and hot. I think I would rather eat outside or do a take-home next time.

“Quick, tasty and cheap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I was in a hurrry and this place was perfect! My food came out quickly, my burger was made to my order and so good, as were the fries, which were big like steak fries. Lots of food. FYI: their burgers, unless u order the "little", have two patties. Very filling and tasty!

Great burgers, dogs and vegi options with tasty fries to accompany this great snack between bars. Get everything on it and grab some of the FREE peanuts to enjoy while you wait.

“My favourite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

I found this franchise here a year ago and I had to come back this summer. Fresh ground beefed and the fries are awesome.
