Outstanding Burgers and fresh cut fries - they even tell you where the potatoes hail from that day. Nothing fancy but the full bacon cheeseburger is to die for. Also. shelled peanuts to munch on while you wait.

Many times you can go to a restaurant and get a good burger with lots of toppings and it will taste good. Five Guys has a Flavor to their burger that makes them stand out from All the rest. It's almost addictive! I can't say enough about how delicious it is!

My quick review is this is the best fast food burger joint in town. Keyword is fast. There are many other burger places around that do a fantastic job with high-end hamburgers. I don't think five guys going for that market. I think they're trying to be an up scale Burger King /McDonald's kind of place. If that is their... More

First, I can't believe I hadn't reviewed this place earlier since I'm here all the time. But if I want a good burger i come here - to a chain no less - who would have thought. Limited menu, but you come here for burgers and fries, however they also serve hot dogs. A regular burger is 2 patties on... More

Not a Burger King, but a fresh burger with what ever you want on it. Not cheap but hot and tasty..plus free peanuts.

The burgers were a little greasy for my taste. The music was extremely loud for the size of the building. Not very enjoyable, especially with Grovers Tavern very near. Grovers has better, bigger and more tasty burgers.

Had lunch at Five Guys today. The burgers and fries are very good, and much more expensive than other fast food burger joints, like Wendy's, Burger King, and McDonald's. Nearly $12 for a "little" cheeseburger, "little" fries, and regular (the smallest size) drink.

If you want a fresh made to order juicy burger with as many toppings as you can stuff in your mouth, this is the place. Fresh cut French fries and great personable employees for a decent price and much better than fast food.

This is a no-frills establishment. It's clean, neat, and makes great food. The menu is limited-burgers and fries. Don't be confused-the "little burger" is still a 1/4 burger. They are fresh, made-to-order and you can have them anyway you like. For me and my teenage son, two burgers and a fry to share, along with two sodas was just over... More
