“Fantastic burgers - best I've had out.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

I was skeptical about a burger joint, as they all fall into the same greasy food category, but Five Guys REALLY delivered. The diner is sparsely decorated in a red-and-white motif, with bags of potatoes and boxes of peanut oil piled in corners, and the menu is VERY simple(don't go looking for a chicken breast burger or portobello mushroom here, folks!), but when you only offer two things, you do those two thing to perfection. I ordered a small burger with sauteed mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, mustard and ketchup, and found the burger juicy and well cooked, and VERY flavorful. Watching the grill cooks at work, I could tell the patties were freshly made, not from frozen.

I love the concept of serving the burgers and fries in a large paper bag, even in the diner, so you can rip into the bag once you sit down and dig in. In fact, you don't really have a choice, since the burgers get buried under the fries at the bottom of the bag! The portions are very generous for the price, as drinks have free refills, and the fry cups are filled in the bag, so a small fry is really more of a larger. Also, the fries are very good, crisp but tender in the middle, cut with the skins still on, and I LOVE that the provenance of the day's spuds is proudly displayed on a board near the kitchen!

I would gladly return to Five Guys - for a simple concept, it's hard to go wrong, but they get it sooo right. Pure burger perfection.

“Best hamburger on the south shore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

I've eaten at this location several times and have never been disappointed! The choice of condiments is quite varied, burgers are cooked to perfection and the fries are amazing...REAL potatoes for a change! Portions are huge and can be shared by two. They even have peanuts to munch on while your order is being prepared....the only negative is the lack of seating, because the place is always packed.

“Awesome burgers, love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Simple menu.... burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and fries. You couldn't make better burgers at home; pure beef patties freshly fired up on the grill and there's like 20 choices of condiments and sauces. The fries are fresh cut and delicious, made from high quality potatoes (they even tell you where they were grown and bought on the announcement board). Sure you're gonna spend anywhere from 6$-8.59$ CAD just for a burger but it's well worth the price. You will want to come back. Oh and you can have all the peanuts you want while waiting or just for the heck of it.

“Best 6 Buck Burger Anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Discovered this chain in Florida. This is, arguably, the top burger joint anywhere. Fresh real potatoes, fresh real tomatoes, etc, etc. Cooked from raw, the way you like it. Extensive list of condiments, some by request only. One order of fries is enough for two people.

Peanuts while you wait ( 5 minutes) , free refills on drinks. Malt vinegar for your fries.

Good food at reasonable prices.
