Good Fast food

The place is big and usually not too crowded. Their burger are relatively rich, burger + fries was enough for me. Free peanuts are available while waiting.

When I ask people about their opinion about Five Guys, they either love it or hate it. Many love the taste of all the food, which is also filling. Some of the biggest criticisms include the price (it's not cheap) and the amount of grease--leave the food in the bag and the paper will soon be very soiled. For me,... More

I've always liked Five Guys and still do. It's almost like going to Mc D"s, you always know what your going to get, No surprises. Just good burgers and more fries that you and your partner can eat. Hey Guys, keep up the good work and I'll keep stopping in.

Reader beware, the food here is addictive. I was once in a dark place for a period of about a month last summer. I would sit through lectures, mouth watering, unable to focus on professors because I needed my Five Guys fix. The atmosphere is welcoming. The fries are the best in town. But those burgers.... I'm not proud of... More

If you are looking for a decent meal, Five Guys is a good stop. This restaurant sits just a few minutes from campus. You should expect to pay over ten dollars for your meal at this restaurant. While the burgers are good, they are nothing special. On the other hand, the fries (cajun) are definitely something to try.

Yeah, yeah, there are 700+ calories in a burger......walk it off and don't feel guilty. Great service from fun employees.

We stopped at the Five Guys in State College PA during the 2014 Parent and Family Weekend at Penn State University Park. The proximity to campus is great, but frankly we were disappointed in the quality and the price of the food on this visit. The rest of my family ordered burgers which they liked, but I'd recently had a... More

Very good food. The hamburger was so big it could have been my entire meal. Good prices. Lots of seating.

Typical Five Guys food. Good burger and fries. Not the cleanest restaurant, but not the dirtiest. These type of places never seem to have anyone assigned to wipe down tables and the condiment areas on a regular basis. Go figure.
