“Not sure what all the Fuss is about”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

People often tell me how great Five Guys is -- so I finally decided that I needed to stop by and have a burger. While it was okay, I would not call it great. It is a greasy burger with the toppings based on what you want. Okay, but I can get that at a couple of local diners that taste just as good. French Fries spilling out all over the sack. Yes, they were good -- but they were French Fries -- translated -- greasy deep fried potatoes. Nothing really special about it. So if I want a burger and there are not a lot of other options I will try them again. But can't say that I think they are anything special.

“Great brugers”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Good if you are ready for a great burger and home made fries. Very generous with their fries. The add ons for burgers are great so everyone can get what they want.

“2 strikes - not going back for the 3rd”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I always give a restaurant at least 2 tries before making a decision and twice was all it took for my husband and I to decide not to ever go back. Somebody likes it 'cause it is usually busy - don't know why. Both times the hamburgers were flavorless and falling apart messy. The cheese on the burger tasted strange-not even like a cheap American cheese. The fries-while abundant-weren't worth eating - how about a half order?? Too pricey for a 'you order & pick it up yourself' menu - over $20 for 2 people(burger/fries/drink). The cashier, both times, was a bit bored and not helpful with the menu. Sorry Five Guys, I really wanted to like you, but you need to add some flavor, great service AND not nickel & dime us to death

“not all that”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

We went because someone said it was good. Well for the prices I expected something much better. Something with flavor. Not just a high price where it felt like I paid for every possible add on to the burger whether or not it was ordered which it wasn't. Yes I got lots of french fries but they were greasy and some were under cooked.

Reviewed September 4, 2012

Don't know how they did it, but I was full, and at the same time I felt light, it that makes sense.
