“Nothing special”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Nothing really special about their burger. Bun, double patties and toppings. you can also add a bacon. it just didn't hit the spot and a little bland.
there were four guys and one gal in the kitchen and they were actually very friendly.
we like their fries but for some reason some cuts are over cooked and black.
overall. nothing special and a bit pricy for a burger chain.

We will try a different location next time. maybe, and just maybe we will have a different experience.

“"Good and Greasy Burgers and Fries"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Love the place. We eat at London's locations regularly and the 5 Guys in Florida where we have our other home.
However, be reminded that a regular burger has TWO beef patties, and the small has one. A two patty burger is hefty, and adding all the extras gives you a great meal if you are hungry. Add the fries and they throw in a huge portion in the paper bag they put it all in. The fries are greasy, but great. The burger is the same. They have a nice selection of toppings....cheeses, jalapenos, mushrooms, banana peppers, whatever you like. Its about 8-10 bucks for burgers and fries and a bottomless soft drink cup.
Good value, and if you can't wait for your burger, they have barrels of peanuts you can dive into while waiting. If you are a burger lover, give it a try you're sure to like the home made taste of the 5 Guys Burger!

“Great burgers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We love Five Guys and have visited in Sarasota and London. The burgers are the best of any chain (small = single patty) and the refills are a nice feature. We always tend to order too many fries and suggest a large will feed 4 nicely. The fries are also the weakest link in our estimation.
Will return.

“Veggie sandwiches should not be allowed they're so bad”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I had the veggie sandwich. I had a bad feel about it when I opened it up and looked at it. Processed cheese slice (the stuff that comes wrapped individually in plastic), cold burger bun, iceberg lettuce and mushy veggies. One bite and I threw it out. It was really bad food. It should be removed from the menu. This is not a option for vegetarians. .
