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.
