“It's a (good) burger joint”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

First time at a Five Guys. Overall the food was good and the fries were plentiful. It was nice to have the guy at the register point out how their system works - saved me some money in the long term! Atmosphere is like a 50's/60's diner with classic rock/oldies playing. Overall a good experience and we'd probably eat there again.

“First time to a Five Guys”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Needed to find a quick lunch the other day and we chose Five Guys. The counter staff was really friendly and there were lots of table to sit at. We enjoyed some peanuts in their shell while we waited. The kids love the new Coke fountains. The burgers were good. Lots of fries too! Had a good time at lunch. Not sure if its worth the money though.

“Great Burgers”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

This is a 10 dollar burger lunch but well worth it. French frys are fresh and Burgers tasty and juicy.

My one comment, they claim the burgers are made with two 1/4 pound patties, in my opinion, the big burgers at Hardees have more meat and they are only 1/3 pound.

“Average”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We have been to 3 other Five Guys and each location has different fries. They give you a ton of them! I think their burgers are over priced but pretty good.

“Not sure what the hype is all about....”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Food is fine - better than most burger joints - but the process of ordering and waiting needs work. One time I went in, I waited forever for my order, yet there were people around doing almost nothing. When Connor and few others are working - things are great- if he's off be prepared for mediocre service.
