3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Very very dry burgers and I normally eat well done burgers ( this is your only option )
white tomatoes , tasteless bacon Cajun fries are just ok nothing special, not worth the money at all very disappointed

“Better than In-N-Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

There, I said it. Moved to Sarasota from California last year and had heard about the raging online war between In-N-Out fans and Five-Guys devotees. I understand that Five Guys now has locations in California, but I never tried it until landing here. Now, don't get me wrong, I love In-N-Out, but Five Guys is just a little better. The burgers are amazing and a small order of fries will feed an entire family. I tried the barbecue sauce on one visit and didn't love it, so I stick with the basics. About 15 free topping choices, by the way. At first glance, Five Guys seems more expensive than In-N-Out, but that's because the default burger order is a double patty. It's a bit annoying that they don't bend over backwards to volunteer that information, so be forewarned on your first visit...if you want a single, you have to order a "LIttle" burger, which should be sufficient for most appetites (especially if you get a BAG of fries). Come to think of it, I'm craving a burger right now....

“If you have to break your diet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

I no longer waste my cheating meals on the other fast food restaurants. IF I want to eat a delicious, messy burger that requires lots of napkins, I go to FIve Guys. Their french fries are magnificent.

“Exceptionally quick tasty burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

The great thing about this place is the variety of burger that is available... and the speed at which they produce what you want exactly!
The quantity of Fries was amusing... they fill a fires container and put it into a brown bag, then pour another scoopful or two into the bag!
