“Wonderful burgers, hot dogs, fries and peanuts !”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The choices to add on are enormous and part of the price.
Can get hot dogs and burgers without the bun if desired.

“Five Guys fun with peanuts”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

I like Five Guys in general and this one is no exception. Now I am not saying that we eat all of our meals at burger joints, but when your in the mood for a burger with say fried onions and a hand full of peanuts to much on while they make your burger....this is the place.

“Fantastic Fries, But Soggy Buns”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

This review actually applies to all of the Five Guys I've ever been to... The fries are excellent --little or no grease and you can taste the potato. The burgers are very good -- my only "complaint" is that since each burger order is wrapped in aluminum foil (whether for eating in or out) there is a tendency for steam to be trapped by the foil, thus making the buns soggy-ish... So order any eat-in burger unwrapped -- then the burger should be excellent.

“A favorite no matter location”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

If you like good hamburger you'll like Five Guys. East Coast doesn't have an In n Out Burgers anywhere but this comes close. Free peanuts while you wait.

“Awesome burgers!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

They close at 10 pm and we got there about 9:30. The food was still freshly made, and the staff was really friendly. The burgers were huge, juicy and delicious. The fries were yummy too.
