First time and we will return to this local chain. We came in early for lunch and the place was newly cleaned. Two everything burgers, one grilled cheese, large fries, 2 sodas and a shake.... $34 with tax. It feels like a local Johnny rocket, with red and white decor. Bathrooms were clean too. The highlight was the milkshake....Coffee, salted... More

One thing about Five Guys, their portions are amazing, the quantity of fries is mega, and they both taste fantastic. Once they load up the burger, get plenty of napkins. And I don;t know why anyone would ever need a large order of fries...My daughter and I usually split one order. And those fries are phenomenal. I can;t give it... More

This is clearly one of the better burger joints out there. Juicy, tasty, and VERY filling and the cajun fries are absolutely "killer." Its kinda cool that the fries come from potatoes at a named farm. The staff is well trained and energetic, so even though I'll probably be moving slow for the next few hours after eating at Five...

Damned tasty and sloppy burger at a premium price. Its good, but I don't do it too often. Burger is enough...I usually mooch fries off of whatever sucker ordered them...and I can eat, lol

The food is excellent. The staff is friendly and professional. My only caveat is that the prices are a bit steep for a fast food joint.

Five Guys...it was clean and service was efficient, but I don't get the hype. Decent burgers, as you'd expect in any decent restaurant. Nothing special, not much selection, kind of pricey. If you're into quantity you'll like the double and triples. Given a choice, I'll take a Whopper.

The atmosphere is less than ideal, but the food is simple and good. I like to order on line and pick up at the restaurant. The spicy fries are great and I like the opportunity to order each burger with individual favorites. The burgers are always numbered with the receipt so you know which is which without having to unwrap... More

Nothing special here...just a fantastic burger at a great price. Served quickly hot and with lots of options. Not for special occasions or nice decor. But what a filling meal!
