The cheeseburgers are really good and their hotdogs are very impressive. I order a single which is plenty for me. Their serving size of fries is huge, so be ready to share! The staff here is always friendly and makes you feel right at home. This is my favorite Five Guys in town!

I usually do not rate chain restaurants but the 5 guys in Mechanicsville is on top of things. Their service is good and the food is good. The wait time is small and the service is always good. This is one of the better 5 guys I have visited.

I love the burgers here, but I would probably go to Red Robin instead for a few reasons. It is really awkward while you wait for your food..I mean basically you are staring at other people eating while you watch you burgers being made. With a good burger sometimes you want more than just fries...so the menu is limited. Those... More

people rave about 5 Guys but I find their fries greasy and salty. The burgers are average but freshly made. I'd choose other places over this .

I've been to this location four times in the past year and it's just what you come to expect from Five Guys, consistent as the original location in Arlington, Virginia. Not all Five Guys locations are the same anymore, which I guess is the downside of major franchise expansion, as this restaurant has seen in the past decade, but this... More

Yummmmmm! I love this place. Been eating there ever since it opened! The staff are great and the burgers & fries can't be beat. I have celiac disease and they do a lettuce wrap for me that is really good. I do, however, take a paper plate and fork when I go just in case. Good place to eat. But... More

I have eaten at many Five Guys throughout the South and find them to be kind of hit or miss. Its either a really, really good one, or just mediocre. This particular location has been consistently very good each time I have eaten there. Recently, I decided to try the grilled vegetable sandwich -- holy cow that was really good,... More

Ever been to a 5 Guys? Then this just exactly what you'd expect, a great burger, to many fries to eat, and free peanuts. The service was up to 5 Guys normal standards and the food came out fast.

Even though this is one of Five Guys busiest stores, and when we stopped in it was a Friday evening, the employees had our order in a matter of minutes. The menu touts a variety of sizes of your choice of burger, fries, hot dogs and more. The gluten free/food allergy customers can be rest assured that their order was... More
