I really am not a hamburger lover but I did try one and it was very good but my favorite is the french fries ! They are fresh cut french fries and the orders are HUGE. I do not like salt on my fries and whenever I order fries elsewhere I always get the eye roll when I request no salt please. Well not at five guys , it was like no problem at all. They are cooked in peanut oil which make them even better. Give them a try you won't regret it .

Great burger and tons of fries, but you will wait a little longer than at your average burger joint. Those with peanut allergies should avoid as they use peanut oil and there are literally cases of it everywhere.

Like I said, the burgers are great, so are the fries. Don't know what the "Bad" review is about. There are for of us, we all order hamburgers, and one small order of fries is enough for all of us (and we are not skimpy eaters), and we pay a about $25. 10 minutes wait is not long, it does not usually take that long, and you can have some peanuts while waiting. It's a hamburger place, and their hamburgers are better then in many fancy restaurants. Hamburger-all-the-way come with very fresh lettuce, tomato, onion, grilled mushrooms, grilled onions, and some condiments. If you don't like hamburgers - go somewhere else!

This is a chain, have eaten at them across the country. Burger-lovers generally rave on them, due to the high-quality meat, wide variety of different types of toppings. And the bowls of peanuts give you something to do while you are waiting for them to prepare your order.

They are good overall, but menu is pretty limited besides burgers and fries, in a fast-food style eatery. If that's what you want, this is a pretty good place - consistent with the entire chain.

Yes, that was me, AGAIN, stopping by for my fry fix and filling up on peanuts while I waited. Don't tell my doctor.
