“Yummy Dogs and Fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Although Five Guys is noted for its burgers, we love the dogs and fries. You can't beat their place for fast service, hot food, and cleanliness. And NEVER forget the wonderful roasted peanuts which are complimentary.

“No Better Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

We ate here twice on our recent visit to a conference across the street at the convention center. These guys make the best burgers. If there is more than one in your party, 2 people can probably split one order of fries. They fill the bag! This restaurant is no frills and has a limited menu, but you get a high quality burger in a clean restaurant within easy walking distance of the convention center.

“Great fries and good burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011 via mobile

It's wonderful to be able to order a burger exactly the way you want it (love the jalapeños on the side) and the MOUNTAIN of fries is the best around. Yes, this is strictly a burger joint and it is very good. I don't get the complaints about prices--$8 for a fresh burger the way you want it, lots of fries, and a drink doesn't seem pricey to me. Granted, it's not a McDonald's price, but it's also not McDonald's food

“Very good but very pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011 via mobile

I had a single burger, regular fries(about a pound of them) and a small drink for $9. A good burger and very good greasy fries. They also offer free peanuts while you're waiting. Loud atmosphere. Good service.
