A chain - an fresh but incinerated burger - fries swimming in grease evident by the stained paper bag. Why would anyone say they have good food - EVER???

This is the Original Five Guys ... It's definitely worth a lunch if you're in Alexandria. It's been cleaned up since it first started, when there were peanut shells all over the floor but the lines are still just as long at lunch time!

We kept hearing how good Five Guys is, so although we steer clear of fast food places we decided to give it a try. It was just like fast food burgers and fries to us -- nothing special. The only interesting difference were the peanuts you munch on while waiting for your order to come up. No point in going there again.

Just ate here tonight with my husband and 3 kids. Our first time at a five guys. Burgers are really yummy! And real french fries, they were sooo good, just like at a fair. I had ordered 5 small fries and the guy said "Why don't you get two large instead, there will be plenty", so I did and we got a HUGE bag full! Really super friendly service at this restaurant, really nice guys that make you feel like you are a valued customer. My kids loved it here too!
