“Had to see what all the hype was about!”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

So, everyone knows the Obama's slipped out of the White House for a 5 Guys burger. So what made it so good, we wondered? Well, since we don't have a 5 Guys in Orange County, we decided to try it out while in La Quinta over Memorial Day weekend. The service is similar to In-and-Out with the same atmosphere (but it smells better). The have a box of peanuts in the shell that you can scoop out into bowls and take to your table while you wait for the food. The burgers were pretty dang fantastic. One of the best I've had. The fries are ridiculous. Never order more than a small, becuase they fill your bag about 1/2 full with fries. We got one small fry for 3 people and never even touched what was in the container. I think I'd skip the fries next time. Great burger though.

“Good but not fab!”
Reviewed May 9, 2011

Ordered a cheesburger and fries. Burger was good but lacked the fab-factor. Needs 1000 island or something... Fries were very good but need a side of ranch and BBQ to complete!
Way too many tables in the small place...felt squished!
