“Best burgers”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

A weekend highlight is a fresh, made to order burger from my local 5 Guys on Rt.1 in Alexandria. The fries are always great.

“Great Burgers”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Five Guys makes one of the most well-known burgers in the entire country. They are handmade burgers and quite flavorful. Be sure to bring your appetite. They are not small burgers.

“Best burgers”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

You can't really beat these burgers. Made fresh when you order, as are the amazing french fries. Be warned, the servings are large! So you may want to go small. YUM!

“If you are gonna go it has to be to the original in VA”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Fresh burgers, peanut oil double fried fries with malt vinegar and PEANUTS! The chain restaurants are OK but they can't replicate the original. The buns aren't as amazing as they used to be, which can be directly attributable to growing the franchise too quickly.

“Fast Food Done Right”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

If you want fast food and dont mind the fat and calories Five Guys has one of the best burgers in the city. You dont go to Five Guys for the atmosphere as it is on par with like a Chipolte, you go for a down and dirty, quick and easy, BURGER with some shelled peanuts. Spike probably does a better burger over at his place on Penn SE and the dive bar Trusty's at 15th and Penn SE has more local flavor, great people, and interesting atmosphere. HOWEVER, for what it is Five Guys is good.
