“should make customers aware that they use peanut oil”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Good food BUT the one thing they REALLY NEED to do is let their customers know that they use PEANUT OIL to fry stuff. There are alot of people who have allergies to nuts, as my son is and he almost ate the fries until I noticed a big jug of peanut oil next to the potatoes. When I asked them they said yes they make the fries with it.

“not quite what I expected”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The burger was quite good but the fries were soggy and not crispy at all, overall not really impressed as a first time visit so won't likely return.

“Go to Mcdonalds instead.”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Really dont know why this place gets good reviews. Tried it out.... very below average over priced lame bland tasting burgers . Not sure if this outfit is american but their burgers taste like cheap cheap american beef from the oldest cow they could find. Expensive and everthing is cooked in peanut oil including their fries burgs ect. They should put up a big sign at entrance warning as such. If you have a major nut allergy (wife has mild allergy to) this place could kill you! We brought that to their attention ...they shrugged it off and said oh well. Your better off going to mcdonalds people they use real canadian beef at a way better price ingredient are all on line for viewing. You know what your into there. Would not recommend 5 guys... will not return.

“OVER Priced”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Really no better than any other burger but cost twice as much. Was not impressed had heard about this place but when ordered I was shocked at the price. We could have went to a nice sit down place and got a better meal for the same price.
