A lot of our friends rave about Five Guys and their burgers. While walking through Old Town we decided to give Five Guys a try. We were shocked at the prices. $7+ for a burger with fixings. We ordered 5 burgers, a large fry, and...More

This place is a total rip off - burgers over priced and very large portions of fries off putting and wasteful.

I went there for the first time with some foreign relatives who had heard about the place. This was a terrible experience. The decor is minimum, the staff indifferent and the food toxic. The fries are served generously, but it took me 2 days to...More

It's a Five Guys. Greasy, fall-apart-when-you-eat-them burgers, free salty peanuts in the shell. This Restaurant is now directly on King St at Columbus, no longer on Fayette. Nice new space with plenty of room, decor is fitting, you can let people walking by on King...More

Who doesn't like 5-Guys. Very happy to see they've expanded to other cities and states. You might want to order the small size fries, the large size can be too big for two, let alone one.

The french fries and burger are the best. The staff at the counter had a great sense of humor and smiled. The food was a basic burger and they were especially generous with the fries.

In some respects, Five Guys is a bit like McDonalds ... very good burgers that taste about the same from location to location. Not the finest burger around by any stretch, but still good.

We had an out of town visitor that heard about Five Guys and he wanted to try it. I tried to persuade him not to go, but we went anyway. After all, he was a visitor/tourist. We arrived just before it got busy and I...More
