“below average”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Bacon cheeseburger, regular fries, and a soft drink, $12.50! I don't mind paying for good food, but the food here is below average. I could have gotten a better meal at Checkers, Sonics, Mickey D's, for half the price! I really don't understand all the hype. The burger tasted like a plain old burger, nothing special. The fries, all though they give you a ton of them, were over cooked and tasted like it sat in the fryer longer than it should. Avoid this place at all cost!

“Very Good Burgers!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

This chain restaurant has a very limited menu, but what they do, they do well! Hand cut fries, and fresh not frozen burgers. Be warned that dieters and those with heart disease need not apply. Your order comes out in a brown paper bag that sometimes is stained with "juice" (grease) from the fries! It's counter service with free roasted peanuts in the shell to munch while you wait. It's a fun atmosphere for groups and folks with kids but it can get loud. We have to go st regular intervals to get my husbands burger fix.

“So glad 5 Guys in Memphis Now!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Recently made another visit to 5 Guys, and as always, excellent burgers! These people have got it right as far as burgers and fries. Their fries also great, fresh cut and fried fresh, with very generous portions. Unbelievable combinations for burgers as well.

Have also visited 5 guys elsewhere, and find their quality very, very consistent. Everything fresh, and they say on their website, NO FREEZERS IN ANY STORES! More to open soon in the Memphis area. Too bad two of Memphis's burger places, Huey's and the Belmost Grill, cannot touch the quality and taste of 5 Guys, in my opinion.

Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

We ordered online and it was ready when we arrived. Even though the place was super busy, everyone was super friendly and personable. The burgers were fantastic.
