“Great Fries!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Always heard of these guys. This is the first chance I had to experience their food. For the price, it is a bit "pricey". No combos available, you have to order everything seperate. Burger, fries, and drink..$12.50. The burger was average but the fries were awesome!! (Note: Order the "Regular" size, cause if you order the large, well, the "Large" can feed the "Brady Bunch" and the "Partridge Famliy" together) Someone once told me a good indicator of a good restaurant is the amount of people that are there. This place was PACKED!! Waiting line was out the door. 20 yards across the parking lot was an empty Mickey D's.

“below average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Bacon cheeseburger, regular fries, and a soft drink, $12.50! I don't mind paying for good food, but the food here is below average. I could have gotten a better meal at Checkers, Sonics, Mickey D's, for half the price! I really don't understand all the hype. The burger tasted like a plain old burger, nothing special. The fries, all though they give you a ton of them, were over cooked and tasted like it sat in the fryer longer than it should. Avoid this place at all cost!

“Very Good Burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This chain restaurant has a very limited menu, but what they do, they do well! Hand cut fries, and fresh not frozen burgers. Be warned that dieters and those with heart disease need not apply. Your order comes out in a brown paper bag that sometimes is stained with "juice" (grease) from the fries! It's counter service with free roasted peanuts in the shell to munch while you wait. It's a fun atmosphere for groups and folks with kids but it can get loud. We have to go st regular intervals to get my husbands burger fix.

“So glad 5 Guys in Memphis Now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Recently made another visit to 5 Guys, and as always, excellent burgers! These people have got it right as far as burgers and fries. Their fries also great, fresh cut and fried fresh, with very generous portions. Unbelievable combinations for burgers as well.

Have also visited 5 guys elsewhere, and find their quality very, very consistent. Everything fresh, and they say on their website, NO FREEZERS IN ANY STORES! More to open soon in the Memphis area. Too bad two of Memphis's burger places, Huey's and the Belmost Grill, cannot touch the quality and taste of 5 Guys, in my opinion.
